Audible Editor Reviews

Author Rob Kirkpatrick thinks it's time for 1968 to stop hogging all the limelight. After all, 1969 was when we landed on the moon, the Mets won the World Series, the Mai Lai massacre was revealed, and the hippies rocked at Woodstock. That's not to mention the Stonewall riots or the Manson murders, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. In 1969, Kirkpatrick brings listeners well-told stories of that pivotal year, narrated in smooth and pleasant tones by performer Jonah Cummings. Listeners will appreciate the rich details of the stories, and are sure to come away with a better understanding of that heady time and its impact on the present.

Publisher's Summary

In 1969, man landed on the moon; the "Miracle Mets" captivated sports fans; students took over college campuses and demonstrators battled police; America witnessed the Woodstock music festival; Hollywood produced Easy Rider; Kurt Vonnegut published Slaughterhouse-Five; punk music was born; and there was murder at Altamont Speedway. Compelling, timely, and a blast to read, 1969 chronicles the year in culture and society, sports, music, film, politics, and technology. This rich, comprehensive history is perfect for those who survived 1969 or for those who simply want to feel as though they did.
