That said, the book is still a great trip along memory lane. Finding places where the famous and infamous met their end (there's a great section on the end of many of the gangsters we have heard about) or the building we saw in the movies, or every week on TV. Epting also is very good at noting what places are private, helping to try and prevent the curious trespassing. For those with a literary leaning, many of our famous authors are put in the locations where they produced their masterpieces. It's the kind of book you toss into the car for a road trip, or leave out on the coffee table for a conversation starter. The two volumes make an indispensable set for any fan of popular culture and the offbeat.
"James Dean Died Here", and take mini-vacations to see landmarks, and other interesting locations in YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD, CITY, OR STATE!
This book is another interesting book for those like me who "have to put it down"...in other words "busy".
So, each page and each pop culture location is a "chapter"!
This is a wonderful take-a-long for WHERE EVER you are going, and WHENEVER.
If you think you've seen it all in that city you're traveling to, think again, and look it up in this book!
Also, this would be a great book for teachers, and for home-schooled children. GREAT FOR FIELD TRIPS TOO!
You'll be amazed with all the information you'll find in this book (not to mention the cool cover design). And no matter where you live, there is probably an event that took place in your town which makes it relevant to practically everybody living in the United States. This book has facts which go back hundreds of years all the way up to stuff that happened last year. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Pop-Culture. It is a MUST HAVE!
