1980s Childhood, A: From He-Man to Shell Suits [9780752463377]

(1 review) Write a Review

Do you remember trying to solve the Rubik's cube whilst dressed in your He-Man picture pyjamas?

Did you try to make `cool' sound effects with your mouth like Jones from Police Academy?

Or maybe you swooned over Scott and Charlene's (aka Jason and Kylie's) wedding of the year?

If that sounds like you, there's no mistaking you were a child of the eighties. Rev up your DeLorean, switch on the Flux Capacitor and take a cruise back through the decade that made you the person you are today.

This amusing and entertaining collection of reminiscences will jog the memories of all who grew up in the same decade where greed was good, mullets were cool and white dog poo littered the streets.
