From Publishers Weekly
The co-founders of the nonpartisan political organization Lead... or Leave have a lofty aim for their Generation X guidebook. Nelson and Cowan don't simply define the nearly 80 million people of the "13th generation" by their collective tastes and attitudes. They want to empower them-"We must lay aside our cynicism, get off our butts, and take a stand for our common future" is how they define their generation's mission. Appealing to a group often considered apathetic and directionless, the authors create a compelling case for activism with copious quantities of statistics and persuasive arguments. The authors see one of the greatest threats to their future in the $4.5 trillion debt. They stress how the burgeoning debt will personally affect the reader (more expensive homes, increased crime) and offer ten easy ways to get involved. Even the most indifferent may be spurred to action after reading "Armageddon 2012," a bleak Margaret Atwood-style picture of America. Also included is a "diet," or budget plan, for the U.S. and a helpful action kit with information on "plugging back in."

but nelson makes an admirable effort at talking about issues that face a generation that know one really cares about. had i read this book when it came out, i probably would have thought that it was a bible for our generation. unfortunately the idea was never updated, and now our generation is once again without a poliical voice.
