The Nineties: A Book Book Review

For those of us above a certain age, the 1990s was an era that was both iconic and life-changing.

Chuck Klosterman‘s new book, The Nineties: A Book, was published in February. With a historian’s eye and a cultural critic’s perspective, Klosterman explores the last decade of the 20th century via the roads of politics, entertainment, technology, etc. He dives into iconic moments such as how the internet changed the world, how Seinfeld was a cultural phenomenon, and how Ross Perot had a deciding hand in the 1992 Presidential election.

I loved this book. For me, it was a trip down memory lane. It also taught me a few things about my coming of age years that I might not have been aware of at the time. Klosterman writes in a way that speaks to the reader who lived through the decade and the reader who is learning about it after the fact.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely.

The Nineties: A Book is available wherever books are sold.
