  • The case to rethink our assumptions about the period is one Doggett makes with verve and controlled passion ... An excellent book

    David Aaronovitch, The Times, *Book of the Week*
  • An important reappraisal of a decade that changed us, for good and ill

    Christina Patterson, Sunday Times
  • I very much enjoyed the ride. Growing Up's strengths lies not so much in it being an expert guide to the seedier side of the 1960s (which it certainly is) but in the question Doggett has woven in every chapter, but just manages to leave unsaid: just how much has changed?

  • [A] book about the decade [the 60's]

    Rachel Cooke, Observer
  • Peter Doggett's fascinating new book Growing Up shows rather conclusively that the sixties was not a sexual paradise

    Tomiwa Owolade, Evening Standard
  • In rich and playful prose, Growing Up knits together material from newspapers, women's magazines, films, television and pop music to create an account of the 1960s that, unlike most popular histories, does not edit out the grim bits

    Louise Perry, Mail on Sunday
