Praise for Boom!
"Tom Brokaw does an excellent job of capturing an exciting, controversial period in American history and Boom! is a worthy addition to his growing canon." - New York Post
"Tom Brokaw approaches this magnum opus with warmth, curiosity and conviction, the same attributes that worked so well for his "Greatest Generation."" - The New York Times
"A verbal scrapbook of the Sixties . . . Boom! shows that the era's core issues - racism, women's rights, a nation-dividing war - remain central today, and that the values boomers championed haven't yet gone bust."
- People (four stars)

- Chicago Tribune
"Genuinely fascinating recollections . . . plenty of memorable anecdotes."
- The Wall Street Journal
