READ REVIEW

CAN’T EVEN

BY Anne Helen Petersen ‧ RELEASE DATE: SEP. 22, 2020 

In 2019, Petersen distributed a Buzzfeed article named “How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation”— the article has been read more than seven million times. Plainly the subject of burnout hit a sore spot with the age that coined the phrase “adulting is difficult,” just as with the individuals who love to insult them. Not as light as the title causes it to appear, Can’t Even is a genuine and calming take a gander at how previous ages—explicitly the Boomer age—have fizzled twenty to thirty-year-olds and set them up for burnout. She states: “Twenty to thirty year olds live with the truth that we will always, bite the dust before we take care of our understudy credits, conceivably bankrupt our kids with our consideration, or get cleared out in a worldwide end times.” Petersen analyzes all territories of millennial lives: work (there’s specific consideration and haul paid to this segment), instruction, web and tech culture, connections, parenthood—explicitly parenthood—and recreation time. The examination is captivating and new, with a few references to simply distributed books, for example, Do Nothing by Celeste Headlee or Uncanny Valley by Anna Wiener. In her Author’s Note, Petersen calls COVID-19 “the incredible clarifier,” and welcomes perusers to peruse each part of the book in view of this—work is more diligently, child rearing is harder, our dependence on our telephones is more awful than at any other time. A millennial herself, the creator is an invite inclusion into her contention, especially in the end when she reinforces her message with her own account. I won’t make jokes about recent college grads any longer. — Sarah Gelman
