Today’s teens and twentysomethings have never seen a real airplane ticket. To them, point-and-shoot cameras are so last millennium and “Star Wars” is a movie, not a defense strategy. The world views of today’s young and old have never been more different.
In this entertaining romp through American culture, the creators of the Beloit College Mindset List explore 75 icons once-famous and now forgotten-from Abbott and Costello to the singing telegram. Packed with entertaining facts, trivia, and photos, this is the perfect gift for college students, their oh-so-outdated parents, and pop culture mavens nostalgic for days gone by.
I received a paperback copy of this book at no cost in exchange for my honest review.
I love history and I love trivia. This book is full of great trivia and gems of information from the past. This book could be a bit of a reference book if you would like, but it can be just a bit of entertainment too. Some of the things I knew just from listening to my mom and dad reference things, and others were new and interesting pieces of information, This book was interesting and fun to read through. It would make a cute gift or be great as a coffee table book,
