Readers of The Next America by Paul Taylor, Generation Me by Jean M. Twenge, The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe will love Gaslighting the Millennials.
Millennials were set up. Everyone reads the headlines. Millennials aren’t buying diamonds or saving for retirement. Millennials want cushy jobs handed to them by organizations with futuristic nap pods. Millennials are killing the housing market because they eat too many avocados. The truth is, millennials were raised being told they could do anything if they worked hard, and then they worked hard only to be told the world owes them nothing. Here’s a headline people need to read: Millennials were set up.
The strength of generational differences. The older generations begrudge so-called dependence on technology and social media, but this connection allows millennials to join together and adapt to new challenges faster than ever before. It allows people to plan massive socio-political movements at the drop of a hat, learn about new concepts and cultures, and understand more about ourselves and each other.
Social media and social awareness. Social media has spread the word about recognizing emotional abuse and its effects on mental health and behavior, inspiring younger generations to take back agency and power. For every injustice someone experiences, they can find someone else to say, “Me too. You are not alone.”
Millennials rising and revolting. The tide of young adults standing up for themselves is culminating in massive societal change. The Gaslighting of the Millennial Generation uncovers the misconceptions about millennials, examining not only their unique strengths but also the baggage they have inherited from Baby Boomers. It shows just how different millennials are from previous generations and why that’s a very good thing.

What People are Saying About This
This is a must-read for anyone who wants a better understanding of the betrayal of a generation told they could be anything if they worked hard, only to be mocked and shamed as the American Dream slips further from their grasp. It’s time to listen, rather than blame the messengers.”
