    “A startling vision of what the cycles of history predict for the future.” (USA Weekend)

    William Strauss and Neil Howe will change the way you see the world - and your place in it. With blazing originality, The Fourth Turning illuminates the past, explains the present, and reimagines the future. Most remarkably, it offers an utterly persuasive prophecy about how America’s past will predict its future. 

    Strauss and Howe base this vision on a provocative theory of American history. The authors look back 500 years and uncover a distinct pattern: Modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a long human life, each composed of four eras - or "turnings" - that last about 20 years and that always arrive in the same order. In The Fourth Turning, the authors illustrate these cycles using a brilliant analysis of the post-World War II period.

    First comes a High, a period of confident expansion as a new order takes root after the old has been swept away. Next comes an Awakening, a time of spiritual exploration and rebellion against the now-established order. Then comes an Unraveling, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism triumphs over crumbling institutions. Last comes a Crisis - the Fourth Turning - when society passes through a great and perilous gate in history. Together, the four turnings comprise history's seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth.

    The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America’s next rendezvous with destiny.

    One of the best books I read in my life

    Although not being an American (and the book very much focusses on American history) I could deeply identify with the ideas presented in here. Probably due to the fact that the American way of life had influenced other western nations in a significant way - at least in my lifetime.
    This book is awesome, regardless whether you are an investor (like me) or just interested in cycles, generations, history and how it all might fit together. I opens your eyes for the long cycles and offers impressive reasons why "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose".
    The narrator is good and following along is made easy. If I could, this book would be 10 Stars.
