Reviews

"A wide-ranging and thoughtful look at contemporary society ... Eminently readable without sacrificing sophistication, many of Bristow's views will be controversial and likely to spark further debate." - Doug Owram, author of Born at the Right Time: A History of the Baby Boom Generation

"Pitching young people against the old is unhelpful to us all, yet policymakers and journalists are increasingly looking to the blame game. Bristow expertly argues that the inter-generational contract is at risk -- young and old must come together to tackle the issues of this generation and the next." - David Sinclair, Director of the International Longevity Centre UK

"A searing and spot on critique of the political hijacking of the generation debate." - Steven Roberts, Associate Professor of Sociology at Monash University.
