Douglas “Doc” McBride dares you to step outside your door or go to a public area and find someone who does not have their face buried in a phone or some form of global information device.
That’s just one of his many observations in this book that reveals nuggets of wisdom, such as:
• the world and how it spins on a daily basis has changed—and mostly not for the good;
• younger generations are not taught the respect, pride, and the drive that we were growing up;
• today’s parenting skills with the shunning of corporal punishment leave a lot to be desired.
Libraries, toys that were interactive and not on a screen, cars without computers that you could actually fix in your driveway, and three channels on the TV—these are a few of the things that the author believes built a strong generation.
