Strauss and Howe locate today's America as midway through an Unraveling, roughly a decade away from the next era of Crisis. They show how generational dynamics are the key to understanding the cycles of American history and draw vivid portraits of all the modern generations: the can-do G.I.s, the mediating Silent, the self-absorbed Boomers, the pragmatic 13ers, and the child Millennials. Placed in the context of history's long rhythms, the persona and role of each generation becomes clear - as does the inevitability of the coming Crisis.
By applying the lessons of history, The Fourth Turning makes some bold and hopeful predictions about America's next rendezvous with destiny, and shows us how we can prepare for what's ahead.

"A startling vision of what the cycles of history predict for the future." ( USA Weekend)
Von T. Handte Am hilfreichsten 19.06.2018
One of the best books I read in my life
Although not being an American (and the book very much focusses on American history) I could deeply identify with the ideas presented in here. Probably due to the fact that the American way of life had influenced other western nations in a significant way - at least in my lifetime.
This book is awesome, regardless whether you are an investor (like me) or just interested in cycles, generations, history and how it all might fit together. I opens your eyes for the long cycles and offers impressive reasons why "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose".
The narrator is good and following along is made easy. If I could, this book would be 10 Stars.
