      I spent some time in high school obsessed with this book. It was in my local library, and I checked it out and read it multiple times over a few years.

      Perky Girls, Playboys, Surfers, Folkniks, Hippies, Rebels, and other assorted colorful individuals, presented in an entertaining and engaging format. I love the photographs.

      Sixties People by Jane and Michael Stern (Alfred A Knopf 1990) (973.92). This is a light and interesting take on the classes of people that dominated the youth media of the nineteen-sixties. These classes each receive separate chapters including playboys, folkies, the British, hippies, rebels, surfers, and the Young Vulgarians. My rating: 7/10, finished 2/15/15.

      I read this book back in high school, during the height of my craze for all things 60s. I throughly enjoyed it, and it helped me a lot with the 1960s-set stories I was writing at the time.
