Millennials Rising: The Next Great Generation by Neil Howe, William Strauss

By the authors of the bestselling 13th Gen, an incisive, in-depth examination of the Millennials--the generation born after 1982.

In this remarkable account, certain to stir the interest of educators, counselors, parents, and people in all types of business as well as young people themselves, Neil Howe and William Strauss provide the definitive analysis of a powerful generation: the Millennials. Having looked at oceans of data, taken their own polls, talked to hundreds of kids, parents, and teachers, and reflected on the rhythms of history, Howe and Strauss explain how Millennials have turned out to be so dramatically different from Xers and boomers. Millennials Rising provides a fascinating narrative of America's next great generation.

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.
