“Never one to shrink from a fight, Gibney has picked one with the biggest bully on the block in his remarkable new social and political survey, A Generation Of Sociopaths: How The Baby Boomers Betrayed America. Anecdotal in nature but impressively weighted with hard numbers and specifics, the volume serves as both an indictment of and rebuttal to a Woodstock Generation that has gleefully celebrated themselves for decades while gradually running the country into the ground.
