I wasnt expecting much from this book initially but was pleasantly surprised.

GenX's views havent been aired enough, and GenXers havent commented enough on the disasters created by the BB generation. The author does a good job splicing important facts with entertaining insights via to-the-point cultural and social commentary.

Important read for GenXers and the POST-Millenial/GenY (i.e. Dumbest Generation) people who are in the same boat....except the economy will be much worse.

Although it first appeared a couple of years ago, not much is significantly different today, and so this book is still highly pertinent. It's the best book about Generation X in general and how they relate to the economy and politics: many books I've read about Gen X are terribly out-of-date, many more are totally wrong or written by some Baby Boomer who really just wants to continue celebrating the "Summer of Love" and talking about Vietnam.

Not only is this a very insightful, intelligent book but it's a pretty easy read. It's not heavy on the lingo and minutae, but does a great job of spelling out how the next leaders of the country will probably do things... as soon as we get all the obnoxious, decrepit Baby Boomers out of there.

I read about half this book and just had to quit. This book is a lot of ranting about the author's experience and the experience of her friends who all seem to be short sighted and lack focus in their lives. Being a Gen Xer I have found this book to be way off the mark in terms of everyday gen Xer's that I and my wife know.

I'm the type of reader that will always finish a book but I must say this book wasn't worth a dime. If you want to hear rants about people's stupidity, read some blogs.
