Brokaw's 'Boom' Tells Tales of the Sixties

Tom Brokaw's new book, Boom, comes out just before the 40th anniversary of the socially and politically significant year, 1968. The former NBC Nightly News anchor says the lasting effects of the eventful time are "as vigorously debated as the era that produced them."

Brokaw discusses the controversial era of the 1960s, and the unique perspective he has gained from his lifetime in journalism.
