I wanted to read this book to decide whether it was a must-have for my high school library, and whereas I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it, I'm not sure I can label it as such.

The idea of bridging the gap between the older and new generations is great, and I think the author explores some interesting points, but it felt a bit bogged down in stats and examples, which hindered its message of inspiration, for me, anyway. 

A good idea, and a great framework to work from, but not one that was overly exciting or ground-breaking. It would be a good start to opening up the conversation with young people though and I'd definitely be interested to hear what they make of it.

"Becoming the Next Great Generation: Taking Our Place as Confident and Capable Adults" by Jonathan Catherman is a good read for those teenagers who find themselves impatient when it comes to making their marks in the world. Catherman helps to encourage them to make connections with older generations, as opposed to seeing those older generations as the oppositions. The book is written at the basic level of understanding, but that would be a good example of the author tailoring the work to a particular audience.

I found this book to interesting and insightful. It was a bit basic in some regards, but the overall message was there. This book is meant to be read in partnership with "Becoming the Next Great Generation: Rethinking How Teens Become Confident and Capable Adults". As I did not read it with that book, I do not feel as though I got the full experience.
