Though well intentioned, the cover advice, "grow up, get a job, start a family" pretty much sums up the book's message. The 221 pages that follow seem little but superfluous. As a millennial with a job, relationship and retirement plan who was recently given this book, I find the advice from an ultra-consertative writer, an NRA radio host (how many times is that mentioned?) and Ward effing Cleaver reasonable, well thought-out and condescending as f***. Were I to be the sort of millennial who floats through life playing video games, hooking up and avoiding the trappings of adulthood so lauded by Messrs Geraghty and Edwards, one who actually needs this sort of advice, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't turn to a book like this to get it. I'd turn to my father who also shouldn't need a book like this, but if he did means he's probably made a few mistakes himself and maybe the oversimplification of life found in this book might be what the old man needs. So hey maybe just re-title this, "Heavy Lifting: Advice You Should've Given Your Son, But If He's Not Too Resentful, Maybe He'll Now Appreciate Some of These Thoughts Coming From You." ...sorry guys, I know you meant well, but as a 31-yr old milennial, this book is just really insulting.
