About Duck and Cover, Growing Up in the Atomic Age
“This is a marvelous book, wonderfully written, touching, & hilarious! I was hooked by page three.”–Daniel Pritchett, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
Duck and Cover is a time machine to the Atomic Age, filled with humor, joy, fears, and sadness. Ultimately, it is a memoir of a generation. And despite the subtitle, ‘Growing up in the Atomic Age,’ Philips assures readers that the experimental radium doses he received as a child did not contribute to his growth or endow him with any superpowers…yet.
