Thread: New 80s book from the creator of DoYouRemember

  1. Default New 80s book from the creator of DoYouRemember

    I can't tell you how I excited I am to announce that my new book "A 1980s Childhood" is in the final stages of production and is scheduled for publication in just a few weeks time! The book takes a humorous look at every aspect of 1980s life the way I saw it as a child. I'm sure it'll ring plenty of bells with anyone else who was around back then. As soon as I know the publication date, I'll be sure to let you all know so you can rush out and buy a copy (or two)!


    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.


    Biog:
    Michael Johnson is curator of the popular eighties memorabilia website www.DoYouRemember.co.uk and can occasionally be heard on BBC Radio as guest eighties expert. Michael also runs website design agency www.FreshleafMedia.co.uk and lives in Dorset with his wife and two daughters.
