Having grown up right around the corner, and knowing most of the characters, this was a wonderful trip down memory lane. Eric has a great knack for story-telling, and a gift for remembering the details that really boost the reading experience. This was a special neighborhood, with great families... a true community that shared their lives and had each other's backs. I'm proud to say I grew up on Delmont Street, and now have these stories in print to remember forever. Thank you Eric Mann!

Think of Eric as a collector, he probably developed that trait from his mom as she had a pretty impressive collection of Hummel figurines . Eric on the other hand collected friends, LOTS of them,.... I grew up with Eric on the periphery of the Delmont gang, (Henry street ) and have shared some of these experiences he writes of. I believe everybody north of center street back in the day was a friend or positively acquainted by Eric Mann's because the guy is so dam funny. To be able to purchase a book that he wrote is a real treat. To be able to read and identify the people , places and things he writes about is a complete hoot. This book is not a piece of fiction in any sense of the word but an amazing recollect based on our reality, paper route's , sledding and dear old "Mrs. Velte". So buy the book ! No matter your journey in life Eric's read will leave you amused . This book is a "keeper"

Anyone who grew up in the 60s and 70s will relate to this book ... Times were simpler then, and kids could be kids without parents having to worry. There was no cable television, DVDs, video games, computers, or cellphones. Kids had their bikes, their friends, and their imaginations. Sandlot baseball games and swimming in the summer and sledding and snowball fights in the winter. Kids were expected to leave the house early and not come home until dark...tired and blissfully happy from spending all day building forts, exploring, and, yes, causing mischief! The author is a great storyteller, bringing each person and event to life, making you long to be a kid during that era again. Hysterical, uplifting, and truly laugh-out-loud funny!

I grew up one street over during the same time period, Eric Mann captured the neighborhood perfectly. I haven't laughed that much over a book in a long time.
Eric - keep on writing!

This was a fantastic read! Having grown up in Manchester during that time period, this book brought back many fond memories. This author put together an excellent compilation of stories that everyone will love. It made me laugh out loud, while reflecting on childhoods in close knit small towns. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to remember childhood antics. Loved it!

The Delmont Street Gang was the best reading I have done in awhile. Not only did it bring back vivid memories of a particular character but it also gave me a sense of home and self-worth. Those were crazy years and some I probably should not want to remember. The author did a wonderful job bringing me back to my childhood. Even though I was not a member of the gang, some of my family members were. I would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone not just the people who grew up on Delmont Street and surrounding areas.

Thank you Eric for giving me a chance to remember and laugh.

This book was written about all the kids in my neighborhood where I grew up! But it could have been anywhere. Any parent should have their child read it and understand all about their childhood. Times were different back then but I would not change it for a million dollars. Thanks Eric for reminding me just how good it was!

A well written story about the good old days when life was easier than today. A true 60's neighborhood where you developed lifetime friends. Would make a great movie. "Janet Haley"
