IGen: Why Today's Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood--and What That Means for the Rest of Us. by author Jean Twenge. 

In this fascinating and lively book, Dr. Jean Twenge offers a revelatory portrait of a new generation that is growing up more slowly and more anxious – but also more tolerant and more safe- than any generation in history. The traits and trends of iGen can seem puzzling or event counterintuitive, but if we want to interact with them successfully – to parent them, to teach them, to work with them, to market to them – we need to understand who they are and why they behave in the ways that they do. With generational divides that are deeper and wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults who are just starting to enter college and the workforce.
