Baby Boomers: they are everywhere. This dynamic and HUGE generation is dominating the current workforce and they are in positions of influence in political and economic spheres across the United States. It is this influx of knowledge and influence that gets a thorough examination in Busted Boom: The Bummer of Being a Boomer. This analytical and historical text from author Brian Paul Bach looks into the cultural perceptions and stereotypes regarding Boomers and reflects on the diverse and influential nature of the group through the eyes of a member because, yes, Bach is indeed a member of the Boomer generation as well. Love them or hate them, the Baby Boom generation has deep resonating influences on the world today, and Bach forces us to look at the directions that the world has taken under their influence.
Perhaps harshly critical in some ways, Busted Boom: The Bummer Of Being A Boomer is a very personal text that takes a hard stance on how boomers have made changes, both good and bad, on American society. I enjoyed the real togetherness of Bach's points and it is clear that personal experience as well as definite research went into the development of this text. A very strong book in its field, virtually no aspect of Boomer personality is left untouched as we get a peek into the social, political, and cultural ideals behind the generation and in an almost funny way. A very entertaining read, and I definitely feel like I've come away with a fuller head of knowledge than when I began.
