This was pretty bad. I received this book through Goodreads giveaways and I knew it might be in rough shape because usually these aren't the final prints but this was unacceptable.

My first impression was that the book cover looked cheap. The font didn't help. The chosen font made the book look 'self-published'. I opened the book to start reading it and cringed. Bad, bad font. The font would also flip between bold and regular and the size would fluctuate. If there was a point to this or a patter

Received this book free as a Goodreads promotion and like other reviewers have similar comments regarding the AWFUL font and size (headache inducing). After getting a good laugh at some of the fortune cookie style advice within, it began to bother me how anti-feminist, ultra conservative living, 50's advice most of the book really is. WOMEN "If you have been having sex since 12 and have no husband in your thirties give your body a rest", "No one wants to marry the town's sperm depository", "When ...more

Recieved my giveaway copy today. Although I have not read this book from front to back, I can already tell that I am going to enjoy it. It is easy to read and is broken down into sections according to topic. Its the type of book that you can pick up from time to time and read a few pages to put a smile on your face.

Lessons from Generation X to Generation Next: Snippets of Insight

Rating: 4 of 5
Author: McKenzie McPherson
Format: Kindle, Paperback

One of the greatest challenges a parent faces is to teach their children to avoid the mistakes they made growing up. To see their progeny make their same errors is heartbreaking when they know how easily they could be avoided. Unfortunately, children frequently don't listen to their parents favoring instead their peers’ or other adults’ advice. McKenzie McPherson's "L

This book is obviously self published. For this reason, I am compelled to both congratulate the author for taking steps toward bettering herself as a writer, and warn the reader to expect certain nonprofessional qualities in the writing, design, and layout.

This book is essentially a bunch of snippets of advice. If you are looking for a collection of insights into what it is like to grow up and figure life out for yourself, but don't feel like reading an actual story, then this is the book for yo

I liked the book - I did not read it in one helping - just a few pages at a time - and the advice made me laugh out loud at times, approved the comments at other times - while scratching my head sometimes as well - truly an entertaining read with a lot of life experience. The font is too big (agreed) but I appreciated the opportunity to read this book. The book's advice is organized in chapters: Family, parenting, education, career (my favorite), health, finances, relationship, pop culture, ...more

I think it's the best book of advise I've ever read. It would make the perfect graduation gift for both male and female friends. Every piece of advise hits a home run. I could pick this book up any time of the day, and find a piece of advise that is entertaining, fun, honest, and true. It's the kind of book you want to show everyone because there is something in it for everyone. This book is well organized. Reading bits and pieces at a time is uplifting. The information just jumps out at you ...more

I enjoyed this book. I found it to be relevant for people (and I say people since there are sections for males) of all ages, not just generation next as the title implies. It's very easy to read and is straight forward.

I won this book in the First Reads giveaway. Thank you to the author and those involved in the giveaway.
