It was a very quick and easy book to read. I could finish one article, put the book down, and come back to it several days later. I chose this book because of the author. Interesting articles but not a book I would recommend. The articles were so broad in interest.

I really enjoyed these essays. All written in the late 60's/early 70's, the essays evoke a long-forgotten era. So much "memory" of that time focusses on selfish, childish baby boomers. This collection of essays describes what was interesting to ordinary people at the time - not all that different from ordinary people today.

I especially enjoyed how the essays wove information together - information from one essay would be casually referred to in another essay. Definitely best if read in the order presented in the book!

Also interesting, the author spends two essays following director/producer Mike Nichols. Years later, Nichols went on to direct and produce the author's screen play for Silkwood.
