Summary

The 5th Anniversary Edition of Generation iY is one book every parent, educator, coach, and youth worker should hear. Over 100,000 adults have benefitted from Tim Elmore's insights in the first edition of this landmark book, which has now been updated and expanded to include new research, stories, practical solutions, and two bonus chapters to help adults connect with today's teens and young adults. It is no longer accurate to refer to Generation Y as one collective demographic.

The Millennials born after 1990 are a whole new batch of students. We call them Generation iY because their life is dominated by the iPhone, the iPod, iTunes, etc. They've been identified as the Digital Generation, Mosaics, Techies, Millennials, and Screenagers. They are the talk of Human Resource professionals and newspaper journalists, they are the prize of their parents, and they are the market share every retailer covets. They are the kids born between 1990 and 2002 and are part of the largest generation in our history. The older you are, the more you'll feel like an immigrant among natives with this new generation. They've shifted from our Gutenberg era into their own Google era. Their bias is for action and interaction. We have the privilege of shaping their future.

Essential for anyone connected with the next gen.

I just finished and really need to read again going over my book marks.

This book is jam packed and is probably worth x10 the money if you know what to do with the info. Why? The potential impact of correctly applying the advice in this book is beyond measure, and that's not hype, read it for yourself and see!

For everyone concerned about our children, grandchildren, and future of our nation and world--

This is a must read for anyone with children/grandchildren born between 1991-present. The author has done a great job explaining and suggesting steps in leading and guiding this age-group. To me, if we don't do anything, the future is bleak.

Tim should spend some time with Simon Sinek

A negative tone on most social challenges. Every generation has difficulties to work through, gen Y is no different. 1/3 through and considering deleting.
