My 70s Book

The "When I Was A Kid..." Book For The Generation That Grew Up In The '70s

I recently had to dust off "My 70s Book" written by Darryll Sherman. It's always a pleasure to thumb through this book, because it feels as if the author is speaking to me personally.   This book is a nostalgic and fun read for 20th century retro males (and females).  Being born at the beginning of the decade in 1970, I could directly relate to about 98 percent of what Darryll wrote about.  From family life to numerous aspects of pop culture, the author accurately and endearingly paints an incredibly accurate picture about the decade.

My 70s book is an enjoyable and easy read.  I read the book over the course of a couple hours one lazy winter afternoon.  It's one of those books that gets you reminiscing about the good old days, and just how much things have changed over the years.   Things like vinyl LP's, television programming, automobiles, and paper routes had me reminding my kids of how good they have it with their ipods, smart phones, live streaming, and pampered lifestyle!  Wow.. I just read that last sentence and realized I'm indeed turning into my old man!!

This book had me longing for simpler times when a kid could play outside all day and not be seen again until dinner time.  The book confirms in your mind just how much things have changed..  for better or worse.  Anyone from the ages of 30 to 60 will absolutely love this book.  It also provides a super entertaining history lesson to younger readers as well!

You can read more about the author, view excerpts from the book, and purchase it for $11.95 at..

Darryll also used to write a great blog called All about the 1970s  If you're feeling a bit nostalgic for one of the most colorful decades ever, swing by and read some of his archived posts.
