Growing Up In Boom Times by Author Chris Brockman.
Baby Boomer Author Chris Brockman Takes us on a Trip Back to the Good Old Days
In his memoirs, author and Baby Boomer Chris Brockman beckons us to travel back in time with him to the good old days of “Growing Up In Boom Times.”
One need not be of the Baby Boomer Generation to enjoy this trip down memory lane; one need only appreciate that change is inevitable — in your generation and in mine, as well as in the Age of the Baby Boomers.
The Age of Baby Boomers was a time of great things: television, rock and roll bands, and transistor radios. And it was an age of great movements: civil rights, women’s rights, and the rights of individuals in general.
In between the praised inventions and the crazed anti-war demonstrations, Brockman breaches time and space to take us to a place where children grow up in spite of it all.
Quite often while reading a book I will share excerpts of the book on my book blog Ruthi Reads! Get a feel for the man and the author in these carefully selected 100-word excerpts.
Music of Life
Having known Chris for a few years online, when I browsed through my signed copy of his book I was not at all surprised with a line or two of song lyrics to introduce the book and its chapters.
Yesterday Once More by The Carpenters is quoted on the Introduction of Growing Up In Boom Times.
John Denver has the opening act in Chapter One, taking us to the author’s start at his parents’ Home Place. In the end, Chapter Twenty, Frank Sinatra closes with “I did it my way…”
There is, naturally, Chapter Seventeen entitled Music where music is made with Chris jamming to the tunes of his life in words.

You know the drill … If you haven’t read it yet – rock on over to Amazon and get your copy now!
Chris will take you back to the good old days where men made a living, where women loved, and where the laughter of children could be heard in the streets.
There is no doubt in my mind that you will come away from the covers of this memoirs morsel feeling as though you, too, had grown up in baby boomer times.
Live, love, and laugh with my friend and author – Chris Brockman.
