Book Review - The Fourth Turning by Howe & Straus

The Fourth Turning, by Howe and Straus

Strauss and Howe will change the way you see the world--and your place in it. In The Fourth Turning, they apply their generational theories to the cycles of history and locate America in the middle of an unraveling period, on the brink of a crisis. How you prepare for this crisis--the Fourth Turning--is intimately connected to the mood and attitude of your particular generation. Are you one of the can-do "GI generation," who triumphed in the last crisis? Do you belong to the mediating "Silent Majority," who enjoyed the 1950s High? Do you fall into the "awakened" Boomer category of the 1970s and 1980s, or are you a Gen-Xer struggling to adapt to our splintering world? Whatever your stage of life, The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America's next rendezvous with destiny.

Eric Wilson’s Review: “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” Everything has a purpose and in everything you may discover a cycle. This book lays out a chilling cycles that continue to play themselves over and over again much like the season spring, summer, fall, and now winter. Much like the Tyler Cycle this is a wakeup call of where we are and where we are heading. Admittedly it starts a little slow but you need to pick this book up and keep reading through it. Pay attention because if you get half way through you will be hooked. Read this, take lots of notes, and recommend it to a friend. It is one of the essential reads of our time.
