With The Greatest Generation, Tom Brokaw defined for America what it meant to come of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War. Now, in Boom!, the veteran newsman brings us into the tumultuous decade of the 1960's -- the decade that bred the defiant and daring children of the greatest generation -- to explore how famous people, ordinary citizens, and the national mindset were all affected by an unforgettable time of turbulence and change.
