This is a great book for you Gen X’ers.

Being squeezed between the Traditionalists, Baby Boomers and Generation Y, Generation X is expected to work longer than the usual 20 years.

I suppose we always knew it… have been witnessing it now at first hand for too long, and it’s only in inevitable that it’s going to happen. Luckily we have unlimited resilience towards life’s challenges and we’ll deal this one no issue. And maybe one day, someone can write a book about that next episode since it just means yet more time for some jokes and creativity.

Tamara Erickson attempts to identify how Gen X’ers can keep up, move ahead and create the career that you want. Using some choice quotes from Gen X’ers and providing an insightful commentary, this book is a great read.

Amazon Product Description :

You’re a member of Generation X-the 30-to-44 age cohort. And you’ve drawn the short stick when it comes to work. The economy has been stacked against you from the beginning. Worse, you’re sandwiched between Boomers (with their constant back-patting blather and refusal to retire) and Gen Y’s (with their relentless confidence and demands for attention).
You’re stuck in the middle-of your life and between two huge generations that dote on each other.

But you can move forward in your career. In What’s Next, Gen X? Tamara Erickson shows how. She explains the forces affecting attitudes and behaviors in each generation-Boomer, X, and Y-so you can start relating more productively with bosses, peers, and employees.

Erickson then assesses Gen X’s progress in life so far and analyzes the implications of organizational and technological changes for your professional future. She lays out a powerful framework for shaping a satisfying, meaningful career.

Provocative and engaging, What’s Next, Gen X? helps you break free from the middle and chart a fulfilling course for the years ahead.
