This landmark book paints a compelling-and sobering-picture of what could happen to our society if we don't change the way we relate to today's teens and young adults. Researched-based and solution-biased, it moves beyond sounding an alarm to outlining practical strategies to:
* Guide "stuck" adolescents and at-risk boys to productive adulthood
* Correct crippling parenting styles
* Repair damage from (unintentional) lies we've told kids
* Guide them toward real success instead of superficial "self-esteem"
* Adopt education strategies that engage (instead of bore) an "i" generation
* Pull youth out of their "digital" ghetto into the real world
* Employ their strengths and work with their weaknesses on the job
* Defuse a worldwide demographic time bomb
* Equip Generation iY to lead us into the future

A must-read, especially if you are a parent, teacher, mentor, coach or employer of young (generation y) employees. It's an eye-opening look at how the current generation has so much potential for great things but only if we guide them the right way. It also warns what could happen if we don't lead the current generation. Read it with an open-mind.
