Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on December 17, 1997
Format: Paperback
Richard Thau and Jay Heflin have assembled an extremely smart and useful anthology for anyone of any generation (especially Gen Xers) who feel in their bones that the next quarter century will bring real trouble. Among their best items are a remarkable 1911 exchange of views between the middle-aged Cornelia Comer (of the Missionary Generation) and the young Randolph Bourne (Lost Generation) that sounds quite similar to the Boomer-Xer dialogue of the '90s--and very different from the Generation Gap of the '60s. It's an instructive example of the cycle of generations at work. You might as well face it, Xers and Boomers: You're going to be tested on all this material, when Social Security enters its melt-down phase later in your lives, so you might as well read the book.

Format: Paperback
This book would not be possible if not for the federally sanctioned, penultimate pyramid scam known as social security. The viewpoints illustrated in this book put into perspective what generational warfare is all about.
