While I can understand one's hesitation to buying a book with a title that generalizes a group of people, I can assure you, as a millennial, that Seth is merely exaggerating for comedic effect. And it works! Exaggerated titles are often best-sellers...not to be confused with basements full of wine, which are often considered best cellars. (A lot of similar jokes to the one I just made are in this book, so be prepared for puns.) His latest book of essays discusses the many things he doesn't understand about the younger generation, and he includes personal stories to help us understand and relate. But it doesn't feel at all like a book full of complaints about 20-somethings. Rather, it gives us a chance to laugh at ourselves and say, "Yup, we're known for that." He also gives great advice about relationships and how to further your career, which I found helpful and reassuring. His cat, Smee, returns as a guest-writer to discuss all the ways cats are superior to millennials (although, let's face it, cats are superior to humans in general). And he dedicates a chapter to the ways millennials are improving the world. I definitely recommend this book to all generations!

There's plenty of satire here, but Bisen-Hersh avoids invective in this delightful series of essays. Since I am neither a Millennial nor an Xennial, I might not be a member of this author's intended target audience. Nevertheless, this Baby Boomer had some good laughs reading a chapter or two before falling asleep each night (which apparently my generation does around the time Bisen-Hersh is having his breakfast)!

A very funny take on the generational gap. It is a witty and honest essay style that feels very personal and relatable. From technology to politics, this covers the divide and how we are all dealing with it. Millenials should find this as funny as gen- or xennials, if not more so.

This book is funny! The author is not afraid to tackle controversial topics, but does so with a great deal of humor. I highly recommend it!
