In the ever-maddening series of Politically Incorrect Guides, author/playwright Leaf takes on the most sacred of cows, particularly in the hearts and minds of Baby Boomers: the sixties. Leaf's purpose is to debunk the fiction that the decade was all peace, love, and flowers. Despite the book's truisms, however, the sixties were ultimately too complex a time to define with such generalities. But that doesn't make Leaf's well-researched refutations any less interesting. Rick Silversmith's voice is smoky and guttural—he makes the words snap, elongating syllables for emphasis, delivering the text with a certain angry earnestness that would sound equally at home in a dramatic context.
