The book that exploded the slacker myth and introduced the world to the real GenX: flexible, technoliterate, information-savvy, entrepreneurial, and perfectly adaptable to the new just-in-time workplace.Managing Generation X explains Generation X to its employers. It tunes in to the free-agent mindset that has swept across the entire workforce and serves as the best source of information on a generation that is leaving an indelible mark on the culture of American business. GenXers' willingness to walk away from any unsatisfactory employment relationship launched the staffing crisis that plagues employers today—and has allowed them to become the most entrepreneurial generation in history. Managing Generation X shows employers how to tap this valuable, quirky labor pool. GenXers speak in verbatim interview narratives on almost every page, offering their firsthand experiences as well as concrete advice on how to manage them (and how not to). Through the clear lens of Managing Generation X, we can see the future of work and the workforce of the future.

This book is an easy read filled with valuable information to bridge the generation gap. I recommend it to anyone in any generation. I learned a lot about myself, my boss and the employees I work with. Our CEO and all of our directors are reading it now.
