Great book I finished reading recently Generation Me: Why Today's Young Americans are more Confident, Assertive, Entitled - and more Miserable than ever before by Jean M. Twenge, who has a PhD in personality psychology. Here's a photo from one of my swimming holes, Labrador Lagoon:

Generation Me by Jean M. Twenge

She's written over 100 scientific articles, and books on her longitudinal research on Millennials - which she terms GenMe (those born 1981-1996 ish) - the largest inter-generational study ever conducted with data spanning six decades!

The book explains how those brought up believing that they could be and do anything, are getting a harsh wake-up call when they leave school, as they are finding themselves "totally" not prepared for the competitive real-world.

Covering how to deal with the two most prominent characteristics of GenMe: individualism, and lack of political engagement, plus various other areas of life, including differences in sexual behaviour, and religious practice. This is the revised and updated version with an additional chapter on Millennials in the workplace.

Millennials have great energy and ambition when they feel they are having a personal impact, and making a difference. This book will help you work out just "why today's young Americans are more confident, assertive, entitled - and more miserable than ever before." And how to actually help (instead of complain about) those who need realistic expectations, careful career  guidance, and support when they become parents.
