The Onion A.V. Club‘s Noel Murray on Tom Brokaw‘s new book on baby boomers:
Brokaw makes it clear from the outset that he isn’t a boomer himself. Born in 1940, he was part of that not-quite generation of young people who kept their hair short, got jobs, and raised families while the incoming freshmen at their alma maters smoked dope and burned their draft cards. And it’s clear that Brokaw still bears some grudges. Boom! contains some scattered autobiographical interjections in which the veteran journalist – objective to a fault – recalls how he felt as anti-war activists shut down campuses and rock stars started throwing around the f-word. In typically measured tones, he suggests they all went too far.
