    Despite the author's right wing bias, this book raises many valid points about how the 60's influenced society. He pointed out that political correctness actually impedes freedom of speech-an important conclusion indeed. His assessment of the major characters in Sixties counterculture are enlightening as well.

    Read every Roger Kimball you can. He is one of the most insightful commentators on our culture and our times.

    I really do not know what to make of this book.First of all, it took me almost two months to finish the merely 300 pages; not because I am a slow reader, but rather because I grew tired of Kimball's diatribes especially in the first few chapters. Virtually every author discussed is attacked ad hominem. We get to know much about the family backgrounds, drug addictions, and moral shortcomings of the likes of Ginsberg, Mailer, and Sontag. While inciting a certain kind of moral outrage might have be [...]

    I read this book years ago. I listened to the audio version this time. It's an interesting and informative book on the 1960s. There is some foul language, but it is used only in certain cases to quote culture figures of the 1960s for the purpose of showing the culture rot of the 1960s.

    Judgmental and opinionated with few credible facts other than those that "support" his one side of the argument. Perhaps the most biased book I have ever read. For fans of FOX News only. (I try to read many different angles to any argument but this was quite simply, juvenile).
