I really liked this book published in 2023. How interesting to better understand generational differences and how culture has changed in the last 100 years. I bet you will find something that surprises you! For example, Millennials are not broke. The data show they have actually done quite well financially.
The author focuses on the six generations living now and how technology has impacted each generation, as well as these two trends that have been developing over the years:
- Slower life
Be warned, this book is very long and detailed. The author used 24 data sets that included 39 million people. There are 282 charts in the book and it is 560 pages. Remember, you don’t have to read the whole thing to get something out of it!
I encourage you to check out the book. It is a great resource to help us understand each other better.
