Summary
"For the first time in American history, a generation is worse off than their parents. With their overthrow of tradition and authority, the Baby Boomers claim to have been humanity's greatest liberators, but their children would happily trade that so-called liberation for a little less debt, the chance to own a home before fifty, and a shot at extracting some commitment from the bosses and romantic partners who view their relationships as temporary. In this book, millennial journalist Helen Andrews calls the Boomers to account. With wit and conviction, she presents profiles of luminaries who promised much but failed to deliver, including Camille Paglia, Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs, and Sonia Sotomayor. In covering the mighty works of these titans, Andrews reveals how their lives and their generational idiosyncrasies have secretly deformed--in plain sight--our society and our successive generations"--
