Relive your eighties childhood with this fantastic new 80s book

The much anticipated book "A 1980s Childhood" has finally arrived on the bookshelves bursting with 80s goodness. The humourous book takes a look at what it was like growing up as a child in the 80s, from the fashions and the music, to the TV shows and the toys. No 80s stone is left unturned!

Here's the blurb from the back of the book to whet your appetite:

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 sang along to ‘Pass the Dutchie’ by Musical Youth in a fake Jamaican accent? 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 slice of eighties life 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.

The book includes the following chapters illustrated with some brilliant 80s photography:

Chapter 1 - Introduction
Chapter 2 - Fashion
Chapter 3 – Music
Chapter 4 - TV and Movies
Chapter 5 - Toys and games
Chapter 6 – Technology
Chapter 7 – Famous People
Chapter 8 - World events
Chapter 9 – Street Life
Chapter 10 - Skool daze


A 1980s Childhood is available now from Amazon and from Waterstones, WHSmith and all good bookshops. Click here to buy from Amazon!
