Excellent book about our youth in Levittown. I was reminded of my early years in Levittown,NY. The book is a mixture of the history of the town and the Author's personal history in the 50s & 60s. Mr Bergsman reveals his personal thoughts, feelings and angst growing up during that time. It was like going home again. As Eddie Money says "I want to go back." A must read for anyone that grew up in post World War II Suburbia
