Please Just F* Off, It's Our Turn Now
Holding Baby Boomers to AccountBook - 2006
ustralia watch out! This is a snapshot of the generational change that is coming. A call to generational battle not seen since the 1960s. Ryan Heath, a twenty five year old writes about his generation - young people in their twenties who he says are very different to Baby Boomers and Generation X.His book is a sexy snapshot of the people born after 1970 - the people of this century. How they are different, special and ready to take over from Baby Boomers.Like many of his generation, Ryan Heath has had a gutful of the same bunch of boomers still hogging all the good jobs and holding Australia back. He says: Enough is enough - it's time for a generational change or Australia will slide into decline.In a style that is controversial, passionate and with humour, this is an enjoyable and provocative read in the tradition of Mike Moore. A must read for Generation Y and X but also for Boomers who will love to hate Heath's criticisms and mockery of them. He pulls no punches when it comes to Aussie sacred cows and institutions - Fairfax, the ABC, and the ALP particularly. Ryan asserts that his generation is very different to boomers and X's. They may be smaller in number but are more diverse, better educated, more socially responsible, switched on to new technologies and believe in working through networks rather than hierarchies. He believes they have what it takes to make Australia a better place.
