Publisher's Summary

‘A damn hilarious read.’ Nazeem Hussain

‘A true barbarian.’ Andrew Bolt

Our world is in chaos lol. And no, Australian Millennials, it’s not your imagination: things are especially f**ked for us.

Millions of Baby Boomers got beach houses, free education, jobs for life and a franking credit-fed retirement. But Millennials have been handed a housing crisis, crippling student debt, the gig economy, a cooked planet, a truly broken political system and now wars, inflation and a global pandemic, as a treat.

This fully sucks. But never fear–this book is going to fix everything. Through the power of jokes, history, interviews and sass, so-called comedian Tom Ballard unpicks how his generation got here, and explains why we should probably do a revolution.

Fact-filled and furiously funny, this is a must-hear not just for young people wondering why they’ve been given such a raw deal, but for anyone with an interest in how we’re making our collective future impossible.

‘Tom Ballard is one of the most original, fearless and hilarious voices in Australian comedy.’ Wil Anderson

‘As a fellow beleaguered Millennial, Tom is exactly the voice we need in this time of wailing capitalist death throes. Funny but biting, he lays out how the system has screwed us all–and it has nothing to do with avocado toast. You’ll never be able to afford a house, so spend your money on this book instead.’ Amy Remeikis

‘Ballard is fuming, funny, and armed with facts.’ Tom Tilley

‘Speaking as Tom’s non-biological mother, I am naturally proud to bursting of everything he does, especially the gay sex and particularly the class consciousness, which you will find emerging in this book.’ Helen Razer

‘Tom makes me laugh, and think. I’m not sure in which order. This book might be his last but that’s ok–he’s nailed it.’ Dave Hughes

Clever & comprehensive

I'm really impressed with this book. Tom Ballard does a great job of narrating his well-researched & well-thought debut literature. The generous servings of clever & cheeky humour throughout compliment the seriousness of the content. Every chapter is a knockout, the epilogue being in my opinion, the crescendo of excellence. I had high hopes for Tom Ballard as an author & even as a mere Gen-Xer I'm quietly thrilled with his work here. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a deep & relatable dissection of contemporary Australian politics.

This needs to be part of every High School curriculum!

Such a great read/listen, so informative yet funny, and somewhat shocking. Gives great insight into our current predicament and thankfully, a bit of hope. My children are both millennials and I hate what the rich and powerful have left them to deal with.

Hilarious & Informative

The book collates so many facts and illustrates a very credible picture of the economic world we live in, and it’s hilarious at the same time

Excellent dive into recent Australian economics

Tom manages to keep this entertaining while covering a range of details of how Australia's approach to money, work and housing has changed over the last eighty years, with a focus on how we ended up where we are now.
