About this title

Synopsis:

Just One Generation is an intriguing journey. Fifty years of stories from the past along with twenty years of stories from the future will both entertain and challenge the reader. The Baby Boomers were a generation of hope—dreamers who would see the world being a better place to live. What did the Boomers do to make things better? Is it too soon to ask such a question? Just One Generation chronicles the author’s coming of age starting in the ‘60’s with the struggles his generation faced and takes you to the retirement years. Interesting stories are told that promise to become timeless treasures as the world looks back on the Boomer’s generation. Idealistic dreams get lost as the generation develops through the “Polyester ‘70’s”, the “Reagan ‘80’s”, the dawn of the Information Age, the media hype of a new millennium, 911, Iraq War, recession—not just the idealistic dreams get lost—the Hope of the generation is lost. Harold Cottrell tells his story in a very engaging, humorous way. Some stories sound like Forest Gump, others like Carlos Castaneda—but the real voice comes from a country boy from Kentucky who is living a remarkably interesting life in his search to find knowledge, wisdom and truth. In the movie Groundhog’s Day, Bill Murray gets to re-live the past over and over until he gets it right. You might say he repairs the past. Is the life of this man, Harold Cottrell, and the stories he tells about repairing the past? Just when it seems that life has no real meaning and hope is lost forever, a wonderful thing happens—Harold Cottrell becomes a grandfather. Hope returns. But he looks around and asks the questions, “What will the world be like for my grandson’s generation? What will it be like to reach responsible age at a time when machines will have the same processing power as the human brain? Where is the Hope?” There is only one way to find the answers Harold is seeking—Travel to the Future and learn! Yes, this book is about repairing the past and learning from the future. You just have to read it.
