Yeah your an X and the good thing is this book will help you come to terms with your situation or really make you mad. The point is you are not imagining the social position you find yourself in The book was scattered and jumping around, but it was deliberate.
There were some good points, but not every gen x'er liked MTV and was a slacker, some do very well in life and will reap their own rewards. It was a good reflection on the environment: divorce, stress, neglect and new diseases. It all added up to "you're on your own pal", but I now realize this what real success comes from, not from being pampered and catered to. Start here.
I loved this book when it was new. One of the most accessible primers on generational studies. I read their previous book, Generations. I was, of course, most interested in their descriptations of my generation, 13er, and how much we were like Hemingway's Lost Generation, Mark Twain's Glided Generation, and George Washington's Liberty Generation. America may not appreicate our strengths right now, but we'll be the ones that'll save this country when the next Big Crisis, like World War Two, happens.
