This almost everything, (but not) pop culture book, is really very good, almost great.

It has classic TV shows, movies, top 40 music, Fads,
commercials, classic toy's, classic candy bars, great Icons, comics, and much more, popular and not very popular, about stuff from the 1950's to 1990's.

Babyboomers should have fun browsing in this book, but younger and older should like this book also.

The biggest problem with this book, is putting it down.

A book with, The Beatles, Jonny Quest, Coca Cola, Captain Kangaroo, Gilligan's Island, Hot Wheels, Barbie, Mini Skirts, The Flintstones, and much much more in one book can't be all bad.

Almost everything? almost, and almost everybody, should have fun reading this book.

I love this book. What a stroll down Nostalgia Lane... ;) My only complaint is that there are no pictures on the inside of the book at all. You can read about things, but if you're trying to explain to a child or someone who does not know, pictures would be nice. I like this book but I will be on the lookout for one with pictures.

What can I say about a book that has entries on not only cultural icons like Harry Potter,Batman,Superman and Godzilla but also lesser known ones like Bad Luck Schleprock from The Pebbles & Bamm Bamm Show if you are looking for a guide to pop culture this is it did you know there was a shampoo made with beer? you will after you read this book THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!!!! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves pop culture both mainstream and obscure.

I will use this book as a reference. As I went through it I caught myself smiling and laughing to myself because it truly was and is a trip down memory lane. Good memories! It made me wish I still had some of those items that made growing up so much fun. Love it!

A fun trip through the memories of our mind. Recommended for all of the baby boomers and disco addicts out there.
