About the Author

Peter Doggett has been writing about popular music and social and cultural history for more than thirty years. His books include the acclaimed Electric Shock From the Gramophone to the iPhone - 125 Years of Pop Music, There's a Riot Going On- Revolutionaries, Rock Stars and the Rise and Fall of '60's Counter-culture and The Man Who Sold the World- David Bowie and the 1970s.


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? -- Kate Lister * Daily Telegraph *
[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 *
Refreshingly undogmatic, well-researched and highly readable -- David Kynaston * Spectator *
