Item Description...
Ever wonder why your kids, parents, and even coworkers think and feel so differently than you do on core issues? Rick and Kathy Hicks contend and demonstrate that many of our core values are shaped largely by what was going on in our culture and world when we were about ten years old. By recognizing the factors that give rise to our own values and those of other generations, we can achieve greater mutual understanding and reconciliation with our children, peers, and coworkers, rather than finding ourselves in conflict. An effective tool for bridging the generation gap.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Builders vs. Everyone Else?  Aug 11, 2007
The authors bring out a few interesting points, but this book seems to be aimed towards reconciliation between builders (pre WW2 generation) and the rest of us. It paints a picture of each generation that could at best be called cartoonish. At worst, the picture painted is stereotypical generalizations drawn from a world where everyone is white and generations are easily classified. The chief problem with this book is its age. It fails to paint an accurate picture of today's generational divides due to its age.

This book does create some interesting thoughts, but would be most useful in an aging church that is trying to change its mission to include younger generations.
A History of Change and Values in America  Jun 3, 2007
It was very helpful to explain generational differences using a decade analysis approach. Stories and conversations used to illustrate the socio-economic and technological changes for each decade were also helpful in giving the reader a better understanding of how much impact each decade has on our values and perspectives. Although the authors base their assumptions that character and personality are determined around age 10, his theoretical model is quite accurate in helping assess each decade.If I don't give it a 5 it is because in my opinion the book does not reveal any new facts not explored before that talk about generational differences. The differences between Baby Boomers and other generations have been a long-discussed topic. Nevertheless, the fact that they bothered discussing each decade and its impact on values in America is engaging and invites for further discussion on this issue.
Ultimately unsatisfying  Jul 13, 2006
This book has a few pieces of useful information ... but overall there are many much better books out there about generations and how they differ (e.g., Generation Me, When Generations Collide, Generations). The authors take a spattering of information from other sources (they are not researchers or policy makers themselves), tell a few narratives, and that's about it. You are much better off buying another book on generations.

Also, notice the publisher: Focus on the Family. Thus the book is written from an explictly stated Christian perspective. For some readers this might be a bonus; others might be put off by this in a book that is not about religion.
Boomers, X ers, and other strangers  Jan 30, 2006
Enjoyed the book very much. I can use the information in my daily dealings with people.
boo to "soccer moms" and hurray for working women everywhere  Sep 18, 2005
I agree with the previous reviewer who wrote of the guilt trip that this book gives to working mothers. I am an Australian who is residing in the USA, and I am shocked and appalled at the American attitude towards working mothers. In Australia it is the norm for women to pursue careers and work in fulltime jobs, whether they are single, married, de facto, mothers, young, old, whatever. Childcare is a policy issue for government, is often subsidised, and considered imperative for the growth of the economy and the wellbeing of the community. What assistance does the American government give to working mothers?! How does the American media portray mothers of Generation X?! The attitude here is so far behind it is laughable. For American authors to claim authority over subjects such as Generation X and its place on the world stage, they will need to update their ideas and look to other societies as well as their own.
