In Fast Future, writer, filmmaker, and advocate David D. Burstein examines how his generation, the Millennials, are profoundly impacting politics, business, technology, and culture. The Millennials have been labeled "entitled" and "narcissistic"; they have been called “the worst employees in history,” “trophy kids,” and “the dumbest generation.” Burstein argues, however, that the Millennial’s unique blend of civic idealism and savvy pragmatism, combined with their seamless ability to navigate the 21st century world–where constant change is the new reality–enables this generation to overcome the short-term challenges of a deeply entrenched country and begin to address our world’s long-term challenges.

Drawing on extensive interviews with his Millennial peers, and compelling new research, Burstein illustrates how his generation is simultaneously shaping and being shaped by a fast-paced and fast-changing world. Part oral history, part social documentary, Fast Future reveals the impact and story of the Millennial Generation–in their own words.
