"Has any decade been more mythologized than the 1960s? I doubt it. Read Jonathan Leaf, who corrects and debunks the conventional wisdom - and who also teaches us interesting and important things about that time, and ours." (William Kristol, editor, Weekly Standard)
"Jonathan Leaf almost makes the 60s worth it in this merciless debunking of the myths of our decade of shame. Fun, informed, and - above all - valuable." (Rich Lowry, editor, National Review)
