Book Description:

Every twenty years a new generation rises, but who and what defines these generations? And could current generational tags mislead and miss the point? In this insightful analysis of technology history since 1900, Dr. Rick Chromey offers a fresh perspective for understanding what makes a generation tick and differ from others. Within GenTech, readers learn how every generation uniquely interacts with particular technologies that define historical temperament and personality and why current generational labels are more fluid than fixed, and more loopy than linear. Consequently, three major generational constellations emerge, each containing four, twenty-year generations that overlap, merge, and blend:
  • The Audio Generations (1900-1950): Transportation-Telephone Generation (1900-1920), Motion Picture Generation (1910-1930), Radio Generation (1920-1940), Vinyl Record Generation (1930-1950)
  • The Visual Generations (1940-1990): Television Generation (1940-1960), Space Generation (1950-1970), Gamer Generation (1960-1980) and Cable Television Generation (1970-1990)
  • The Digital Generations (1980-2000): Personal Computer-Cell Phone Generation (1980-2000), Net Generation (1990-2010), iTech Generation (2000-2020), and Robotics Generation (2010-2030). Dive in and revel in this exciting, compelling, and novel perspective to understanding recent American generations with GenTech

An exceptional book about technology and history

Reading this book is so much fun and entertaining. It likes looking back at old times and what we accomplished in the future. The book is so educational. There is so many facts to learn about history. It makes me so happy to learn about the past and move on. This book is like going back to memory lane.

Being born in the year 1973 in a different country which is nothing compared to America makes me proud of what I become speaking of learning technologies. Those were the days when everything is slow but beautiful. Nowadays, catching up and learning new stuff from my kids is even more fun. The TikTok and Xbox game is common in our household. Kids nowadays are into technology while me growing up is more about hands-on games that does not include electricity.


We live in a modern world where everything is complex yet inspiring and beautiful just like this book.

Blaze is the fourth book in the Men of Inked: Southside series and features Lily Gallo. 
Synopsis
Lily Gallo prided herself on her pristine reputation. A dedicated bookworm. An awkward goody-two-shoes. Lover of fiction more than reality. Jet Michaels had always had a broken moral compass. A cocky egomaniac. An unashamed womanizer. Craving adventure instead of responsibility. Lily never expected to come face-to-crotch with her old high school crush, and she never dreamed he’d make her an offer she couldn’t refuse. But what was supposed to be a platonic arrangement quickly spiraled out of control. Can the inexperienced nerdy girl tame the notorious player? Or will he peel back her pages, exposing the wildcat hidden underneath? Blaze is the fourth STANDALONE novel in the Men of Inked Heatwave series!

I rated this book 5 *****'s 

A womanizer found his match

I know that Ms. Chelle Bliss books are fun to read and Blaze is not an exemption. The author never stops to give us delicious, funny and amazing stories that will knock our senses out.


Lily is my new favorite heroine aside from Izzy. This girl is hilarious and naive compared to her wild cousins. I cannot put this book down the moment I lay my fingers on my Nook. I love how her parents are so protective of their only girl. She might look naive, but she has a talent that will put a man down on their knees. Love is deadly game for Jet. He finally found his match thru Lily. I enjoyed reading their story.
