4.0 out of 5 stars Swing Reality Feb. 10 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the reality of swinging. Most swingers are thought to be young and beautiful. The people in these photographs are older and mostly average looking. They are your friends and neighbors (yes, even if you go to church).

I thought the book was realistic and true to life. If you want to look at beautiful people having sex try porn. If you want to know what swinging is, then this is the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine pick for libraries not avoiding graphic sexual nudity Dec 16 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
America Swings: Photographs by Naomi Harris is recommended for a range of collections, from photography and social history libraries to those interested in sexuality. Graphic nude images make this a specialty acquisition but the artistry of Naomi Harris' choices provide as much arts detail as social history, making this a fine pick for libraries not avoiding graphic sexual nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joke it was about Big Bands. Jan. 9 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A fine, well printed book by Taschen, about the alternative life style of an American Sub-Culture. Look like they were trying very hard to have fun.

By Alex Harper - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's an interesting book, but feels to me as though the author was trying to portray the subject matter as seedier and a little grotesque. Is though the white-trashiest of imagery shows through most prominently. Other than that, an interesting study of the swing lifestyle. Not for the faint of heart! :-)
5.0 out of 5 stars window to a different type of culture June 13 2014

Terrific photographic depiction of this culture. Interesting and intimate selection of photos. Very well done, great representation of the artist's travels
