This book was doing the rounds in our class in around 1966 / 67 and I remember a your radical English teacher reading extracts from it.  I never forgot the title. And after all these years I managed to purchased an old copy earlier this year from Ebay for around £20.  Memories came flooding back. If no one has ever read this book it is made up of chapters or paragraphs of interviews of the youth of the mid 60s from across the board of different classes taking their views...
