Format: Paperback
Though most of the novel in centered around a story of 6 teenagers, the topics that complicate their lives are far from being issues of Beckerman's imagination. Enlightening and horrorifying, the topics of sexual behavior, violence,suicide, drugs, and alcohol are not unfamiliar to teenagers. Beckerman does justice to the lives of his characters and does paints a realistic picture. His honesty is what makes this novel captivating and worth reading. The statistics alone that Beckerman reports, gives the reader an eye opener to the truth of the character's lives. A great read and a great book to have in a collection.

The book was readable, and not as shocking or controversial as I was expecting. I got an amorphus message from it- I wasn't sure what the writer believed motivated his characters, and maybe that was the point- a lack of clarity and direction drives teens to destructive behavior.

Format: Paperback
Generation S.L.U.T. is not for everyone. Some readers will find the fictional story as literary pornography, while others will appreciate its fresh candor on the sex lives of today's teenagers. No doubt, if a reader were to consume only certain parts of the book, many different descriptions could be made of it. However, its sum total is a truthful and necessary message for parents, teenagers, and educators. Marty has taken the veil off of a once secretive subject, and has served it as a full course meal to the unaware, and uninitiated. The book maintains a status of being for everyone, yet it's not for everyone. If you have a strong stomach, much like the kind needed to hear stories about surgery or bathroom mishaps at the dinner table, then you'll be able to handle this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a really interesting book Marty has compiled here. It is full of statistics on todays teens, quotes from magazines, newspapers and books, not to mention Marty's insane and funny true life stories all intertwined amongst one cohesive fictional story. His writing is unique, in that he says whats on his mind mid-sentence and always has something sarcastic to add. The text can be scary at times in it's realism but never is exagerated beyond belief. There is no doubt that this is as much a journalistic venture as it is a novel. I found the information to be morbidly mind-boggling and the stories come across insitefully so, even amongst his often times subconsiously sharp thoughts. It comes apart and together nicely. Highly recommended.

By Gautner on April 23 2004
Format: Paperback
I borrowed Beckerman's book from a friend after seeing him appear on Bill O'Reilly's "The Factor." I almost immediately began to like Beckerman as he drug out two verbal cannon balls that absolutely no one any older than Beckerman would dare drag out. First, was his insinuation that there was a backlash from the feminist revolution affecting Generations X and Y. Secondly, he slipped a comment about parents buying their 13 year-old daughters thong panties in under the wire, and neither Bill nor his other guest either heard it, or knew quite how to respond. The fact that Beckerman is willing to raise these issues in such a point-blank fashion earns him three stars.
Here is where he loses two stars. Firstly, he detests the culture of teen sex without emotional connection, but MTV publishes the book. This is the reason I borrowed the book rather than buying the book. If I am as outraged by the trashy 'poptarts' in the malls being 'chaperoned' by their 'fifty-going-on-fifteen' mothers as Beckerman, I am unlikely to be a big fan of MTV - the largest purveyor of classless and clueless as cool. He should have held out for a more credible publisher. Secondly, Beckerman's 'story and stats' technique doesn't work for me. If he wanted to write a story it would have had to have some subtlety (see the short story "Lust" by Susan Minot for example), and if he wanted to write social commentary, he should have simply done it (see "A Return to Modesty," by Wendy Shalit, or "Modern Sex: Liberation and its Discontents," edited by Myron Magnet).
Ultimately, Beckerman's language and stylistic tactics are products of the same generation's relativism he is so critical of. Beckerman is right to indict a shameless generation, and incriminate the parent's for the part they've played in it.

Format: Paperback
Contains a lot of unrelated stats in order to pad the text to a reasonable length, and the fiction sections seem to have been written by a ninth-grade creative writing student (and not a very talented one at that). Utterly devoid of value.

SLUT is a feminine gendered word. This is nothing but a commercial attempt at a "quick hit" using borderline child porn and misogynist views, under the guise or "Research".
Unfortunately, Marty will probably make a million and become a VJ at MTV, heralding more change for our already-deceived teens.
The media has destroyed our culture in the last 30 years, coincidentally during the rise of televised rock videos. And it's all been done by misfits in search of a buck...not art. That's the EXCUSE.... Just another buck so they can get their nut...however they get their nut.
Careful, Marty, you got the taste for it now...interviewing underage cuties. Two words for you, dude... "Jail Bait". Or "Jail Time". You pervert.
Nothing new here. Penthouse Letters is much more exciting & informative, and focused on LEGAL sexual relationships. Subscribe through Amazon today!
