Generations : the real difference between Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Boomers, and Silents--and what they mean for America's future / Jean M. Twenge, PhD.
Upending the conventional theory that generational differences are caused by major events, Dr. Jean Twenge analyzes data on 39 million people from robust national surveys--some going back nearly a century--to show that changes in technology are the underlying driver of each generation's unique makeup. In this revelatory work, Twenge outlines the key shifts in attitudes and lifestyle choices that define each generation, from the not-so-Silent generation, who played a crucial role in the civil rights and feminist movements, to the alarming state of Generation Z's mental health and the profound changes wrought by smartphones. Twenge explores what the Silents and the Boomers want out of the rest of their lives; how Gen X-ers are facing middle age; the ideals of Millennials as parents and workers; and how Gen Z has been changed by COVID, among other fascinating topics. Covering gender, income, politics, race, sexuality, marriage, mental health, and much more, Generations is an eye-opening look at who we really are and how we got that way. It will forever change the way you view your parents, peers, coworkers, and children, no matter which generation you call your own. -- Provided by publisher.
