The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Sixties proves that the anti-Vietnam War sentiment and free-love slogans that supposedly defined the decade were just a small part of the leftist counterculture. The mainstream culture was more politically incorrect, but you'll never hear that from a liberal pundit or read it in a politically correct textbook.
"Jonathan Leaf almost makes the 60s worth it in this merciless debunking of the myths of our decade of shame. Fun, informed, and - above all - valuable." (Rich Lowry, editor, National Review)

More opinion than fact....
Would you try another book from Jonathan Leaf and/or Rick Silversmith?
No. It's mostly just opinions by someone who doesn't like the view of 60's culture.
Has The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Sixties turned you off from other books in this genre?
Yes. I expected the "politically incorrect" part to be non-biased facts.
Did Rick Silversmith do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
If he was going for an opinionated curmudgeon, he nailed it.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It was on sale.
Any additional comments?
If you're looking for fact based political incorrectness - and I was - skip this series. Over all, it was just not that good.
Poor right wing crap on the side of the establishment.. Just not fun at all
