A subjective history of 1967, the year of the release of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band; the year of the Summer of Love; the year that millions of now-illegal LSD tabs flooded America; the year that hundreds of thousands of protesters vainly attempted to levitate the Pentagon. It was the year the word 'hippie' peaked and died, and the Yippies were born. This book is a mosaic of seminal moments in the psychedelic, spiritual, rock-and-roll, and political protest cultures of 1967.

Mr. Goldberg misses all the enthusiasm, excitement and vibrancy of 1967. I believe it was Time magazine that termed the word 'Youthquake' to describe the year (or era); this term describes my memories of the year 1967 perfectly. Mr Goldberg in turn, presents us with an afternoon nap. Pass on it and spend your time on YouTube, groovin' to the oldies.
