"Slacker Manifesto" for Generation X?

Jeff Gordinier, editor-at-large at Details and Entertainment Weekly, has a book out later this spring that’s likely to spark a lot of discussion, X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking. According to the publisher, Gordinier will show “how Gen X innovations in art, comedy, technology, activism, and (gasp!) business have come to define the way we live now.” Generation X, the book will also argue, is “maybe, secretly, the ‘greatest generation’ of all” (Gordinier, X Saves the World). I'm looking forward to reading it.
