This book has prompted many lively and revealing discussions in our household. The one millenial in our family uses it as a touch-point to jumpstart dialogue about generational differences. We, the parents, use it as a means to find out what's on our child's mind and how he perceives the world and his place in it. Would highly recommend it to a family who reads and wants to share ideas.
As Millenials become a more active generation in our country its interesting to see the impact they are making as they enter in to the world of adulthood.
