Too bad he hasn't written more
An absolutely terrific book that is made to be read in 10 to 20 minute increments. It is a facinating trip from post WWI years through the roaring 20s and the Depression to the end of WWII. One minute the topic can be light and even silly (in Wood's American Gothic the rustic couple posed before a house of ill repute) and the next grave and moving (the capture of Anne Frank and her family). It is too bad that there are not similar books for every period of history.

Delicious Tid-Bits of Life in the world of 1923-1945
I discovered this book on a bargain rack one day, and I thought it would be a good read. It was more than that. It is a glimpse into all facets of life in not only America, but the world; including politics, entertainment, the home front, and how life functioned during these times of great change. I recommend it for every history teacher, as it gives you many funny anecdotes to make your lectures more fun.
