    1. The New York Times: The Times of the Eighties: The Culture, Politics, and Personalities That Shaped the Decade by William Grimes. Is a snap of a decade of American pop culture. Grimes is the author of four books on food and drink and the current obituary writer for the New York Times.

This book was a pleasant trip [...]

    2. Shoulder pads, Michael Jackson's moonwalk, Reagan's speeches, the wall in East Berlin, Princess Di's Wedding, pictures of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs looking oh, so young, and the rise of the Evangelicalsp, this book covers it. Fun stroll down memory lane.

    3. I received this book as an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.I love the eighties! I was between 11 and 21 during this decade, so I was extremely excited to read this book. I did very much enjoy most of the articles.

Coverage of the decade is evenly distributed among the b [...]

    5. Anyone growing up in the 1980s remembers Strawberry Short Cake, He Man, Care Bears, and sideways ponytails, but it is easy to forget many of the political, social, and technological landmarks because of the nostalgic memories that dominate. That is precisely why The New York Times: The Times of the Eighties is the absolute best way to bring back the nostalgia of the past.This collection of articles from The New York Times features the actual articles and photographs that helped to define a gener [...]

    6. Growing up during the 80's was a great time for me. I was in high school, found my first love and met my best friend. What a great walk down memory lane. I even read a few things that I didnt know was going on about that time.

    7. The New York Times’ Times of the Eighties is a nostalgia bomb for any eighties fan. More advanced eighties fans, however, might find it too straightforward for their palettes. If you’d like.
