BOOM! Voices of the Sixties, personal Refletions on the 60s's and Today--Tom Brokaw--An entirely different book, and kind of book, than The Greatest Generation. Brokaw comments throughout a large number of interviews on the 60s, what happened, why it happened, how it happened and various theories and consequences which he relates to the societal changes of the sixties. Brokaw was part of the sixties as a reporter, witnessing it and trying to make sense of it from the perspective of his mid-west background at the time, and continues through the book to do the same. If definitive answers to the questions are the goal of the reader, in my opinion the reader will be disappointed. However, Boom! Serves well to bring focus to any discussion of “the sixties” and its aftermath.
