By the authors of the bestselling 13th Gen, an incisive, in-depth examination of the Millennials--the generation born after 1982.

In this remarkable account, certain to stir the interest of educators, counselors, parents, and people in all types of business as well as young people themselves, Neil Howe and William Strauss provide the definitive analysis of a powerful generation: the Millennials. Having looked at oceans of data, taken their own polls, talked to hundreds of kids, parents, and teachers, and reflected on the rhythms of history, Howe and Strauss explain how Millennials have turned out to be so dramatically different from Xers and boomers. Millennials Rising provides a fascinating narrative of America's next great generation.

From the Back Cover:

in the '60s, it was the Boomers. In the '90s, it was the Xers. Now, it's the Millennials -- who are graduating from high school and flooding the nation's college campuses. In Millennials Rising, bestselling authors Howe and Strauss reveal who these kids are and where they're going. They explain ...
-- Why Millennials are protected, pressured, and celebrated far more than Boomers or Gen Xers ever were
-- Why civic spirit and test scores are up, and crime and risky behavior down
-- Why today's kids are held to higher standards than adults apply to themselves
-- Why Millennials are a lot less violent, vulgar, and sexually charged than the teen culture older people are producing for them

A decade ago, in Generations, Howe and Strauss predicted many of the youth trends we are beginning to see today. Now, in this remarkable new book -- one that is certain to spark a heated national debate about the next generation -- the authors provide startling proof for how today's Millennial teens are defying conventional wisdom about youth.

Having taken their own polls, weighed all the data, talked with hundreds of kids, parents, and teachers, and reflected on the rhythms of history, Howe and Strauss offer this powerful conclusion: Before the decade is over, Millennials will reject the Gen X pop culture, rebel against Boomer politics, dramatically redefine what it means to be young, and, in time, become America's next great generation.

About the Author:

William Strauss and Neil Howe originally coined the term "Millennial Generation" in 1991 and wrote the pioneering book on this generation, Millennials Rising, in 2000. They are also the authors of Generations: The History of America's Future and 13th-GEN, and write and lecture frequently on generational issues. Strauss is the cofounder and director of the Capitol Steps, a political cabaret. Howe, an historian and economist, is a senior adviser for the Concord Coalition. They both live in the Washington, D.C., area.
