About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
"History never looks like history when you are living through it. It always looks confusing and messy, and it always feels uncomfortable." Quote by John W. Gardner
How will historians judge this generation? We cannot wait for their declaration. Time is short and society teeters on the brink of the abyss! We are forced to act now and try them in these pages. Let the historians judge the rightness of our actions.

About the Author
M.C. Lloyd (Marcus Lloyd) has been a poet for years and has brought the poet's word discipline and keen observation skills together in this work about the author's generation. Moving Beyond Woodstock: The Less Than Greatest Generation, is a tongue-in-cheek yet provocative unveiling of the Baby Boomer generation. Through the lens of satire the author exposes these people for whom they are; their history, values, role models, as well as the ideas and institutions they support. Questions are also raised about the role this generation has played in society, how they measure up to The Greatest Generation and what kind of future they are moving us toward. If you want to know about Baby Boomers this book is an essential read. As a history buff the author appreciates the writing technique of tying a historical occurrence into a book's present drama and the author is using this tool on his current work, a thriller. Although the two books are vastly different, the author says if you stay with a book it will reveal its own voice and story in time.
