As the fifties ended, we were about to embark on a journey that would take our American society in a completely new direction. By reviewing history, we can identify how the tumultuous sixties chose our path while each decade, beginning in 1950 and continuing through 2000, determined our course at that time.

 

On this journey, many values and lifestyles experienced by the Baby Boomers were left behind, not passed on to their children, Gen X and Gen Y. The resulting new outlook profoundly influenced attitudes held by these emerging generations.

 

The fascinating field of handwriting analysis serves as our GPS which enables us to identify these attitudes, trace where we’ve been and understand where society is today. Handwriting is an expression of self and attitudes resulting from personal experiences, social interactions and events that made a significant impact. Reliving the journey with insight is made possible by studying handwriting samples obtained from high school yearbooks covering those five decades. Numerous historical and societal changes profoundly influenced attitudes of today. These attitudes mirror our culture.

 

Handwriting analysis will not reveal precise societal changes;
however, it will reveal how these changes impact attitudes.

This book was extremely well-research and a fascinating look at how profound an influence society has on young minds. It should serve as a 'wake up call" to those who are not concerned with the direction our culture is taking and how many values have been lost--values that made America great!

WHAT AMERICA LOST....is an intriguing study of the relationship between culture and handwriting during the past 50-60 years, It is extremely well written, and is much more interesting to read than the title suggests! I am fascinated to read the researched statistics showing how education and culture exemplifies itself in penmanship. Don't miss this one!
