Reviews:

"An inspiring, provocative encouragement to younger generations to exercise political clout....the author supplies a surprisingly sober analysis--one that's consistently reasonable and pragmatic....this is an intelligent call for practical reform....A spirited critique of American politicians' treatment of younger generations, and a plan of action for youth empowerment." Kirkus Review

"If you value your country and the future of our society, and would like our future to be better, then buy this book. If you know someone who wants to learn about new ways of thinking outside the box and tired of the same failed ideas being used over and over that is ruining it for the current (and future) generations, buy this book for that person....I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a better country now and for its future generations." (5 stars) Indie Book Reviewers

"I recommend this book, "Confessions of an Old Man" to everyone who wants to read a clear, coherent vision of a better future for our country. Mr. Moon does a splendid job of stating his thesis in the beginning and backing it up with clear, coherent arguments throughout the whole book. Highly recommend." (5 stars) Sherrie Warner - Barnes & Noble Reviewer

"Munir Moon has a great ability to take complex ideas, concepts and put them in the simplest terms for all to understand easily and in a way that we can relate to, no matter if you are a Millennial, or a Baby Boomer, or a Gen X-er....a well-rounded approach to critical thinking and improving the conditions and can improve lives for future generations."(5 stars) Stefan Beacher - Goodreads Reviewer

"It is inspiring and well-researched - it is clear that the author knows what he's writing about...Any book that presents solid ideas in a fresh way is worth a read, and I thought it was very eye-opening and inspiring as well."(4-5 stars) Nicole Hastings - Indie Book Reviewers

"I was unaware of so many things discussed in this book, and I consider myself to be fairly well educated and in touch with current affairs....Recommend for readers of economic and political nonfiction." (4-5 stars) Essiea Harmon - Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

Overview:

The future is being stolen from the millennial generation. Baby boomers have much to answer for: a legacy of economic instability, poor job growth, and an environmental disregard. Confessions of an Old Man is a statement of collective guilt that places the responsibility on the author's generation for dealing a bad card to its children.

This is a call to action for the MI generation (defined as those born after 1980)-a generation with the most to lose if the United States continues with its current domestic and foreign policies. Millennials are paying the bills for their parents' neglect and they must have a say in their own future. Confessions of an Old Man is also a call to those parents and grandparents who want to leave a better America for their children and grandchildren.

The elections of 2018 and 2020 will be the most significant elections of this generation. The US House of Representative is filled with aging representatives (many of whom have held office for at least 20 years have become part of the permanent political class) who are out of touch with the priorities of the coming generation. At least 51 incumbent congresspersons are not seeking reelection in 2018—a record and the best chance for turnover in congress. We can effectuate change. Now is the time. This book challenges the MI Generation to take charge of its destiny or have the future decided by rich old white men.

About the Author

Munir Moon is a former financial industry executive, a successful small business owner and an author of three books. Moon spent eight years in the financial industry, starting at Chase Econometrics and ending at a savings and loan association during the 1980s. He was a firsthand observer of the financial crisis in the 1980s, which resulted in the demise of the savings and loan industry, to be repeated in 2008 in a different form. Having a son born with cancer who survived numerous surgeries, he has experienced the best and worst of American healthcare system. As a businessman, he appreciates the impact of over-regulations, taxes and globalization. The recent book, Confessions of an Old Man: How Millennials are Being Robbed is a call to action for the MI generation (defined as those born between 1980 and 2018) — a generation with the most to lose if the United States continues with its current domestic and foreign policies. Baby boomers have much to answer for: a legacy of economic instability, poor job growth, and an environmental disregard. This book is a statement of collective guilt that places the responsibility on the author's generation for dealing a bad card to its children. The first book, The Beltway Beast: Stealing from Future Generations and Destroying the Middle Class, was published in 2014. It transcends the anger and frustration of the American people caused by their leaders’ failure to solve the country’s problems. The book included warnings about cyber security and domestic terrorism by nationalist groups as the most serious economic and national security threats to the United States. The Middle Class Comeback: Women, Millennials, and Technology Leading the Way, counters the negativity of the dominant narrative surrounding the past, the present, and most importantly, the future of the American middle class. It presents a hopeful blueprint for its revival, with women, millennials, and technology being major factors, while addressing the transformation of ever-rising health-care and education costs and taxes that adversely impact the middle class. Moon earned his BS in engineering, MS in economics, and MBA in finance from UCLA. He is married with three sons and lives in Los Angeles County, California.
