Episode 39: Leonard Steinhorn, The Greater Generation: in Defense of the Baby Boom Legacy




Leonard Steinhorn Brent Green Interviews Leonard Steinhorn,
about his book The Greater Generation:
in Defense of the Baby Boom Legacy.


Several years ago I read a controversial and critically acclaimed book entitled The Greater Generation: in Defense of the Baby Boom Legacy. This book presents an articulate argument in support of the Baby Boomer generation, and it is an incisive offense aimed at the generation's many critics.

And that's the focus of this episode of Generation Reinvention. The book's author, Leonard Steinhorn, is my guest today, and I promise you an engaging conversation, whether you embrace what Boomers have accomplished or you are disgusted with the generation.
