    DescriptionCalled "The Entitlement Generation" or Gen Y, they are storming into schools, colleges, and businesses all over the country. In this provocative new book, headline-making psychologist and social commentator Dr. Jean Twenge explores why the young people she calls "Generation Me"--those born in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s--are tolerant, confident, open-minded, and ambitious but also cynical, depressed, lonely, and anxious. Herself a member of Generation Me, Dr. Twenge uses findings from the largest intergenerational research study ever conducted--with data from 1.3 million respondents spanning six decades--to reveal how profoundly different today's young adults are. Here are the shocking truths about this generation, including dramatic differences in sexual behavior, as well as controversial predictions about what the future holds for them and society as a whole. Her often humorous, eyebrow-raising stories about real people vividly bring to life the hopes and dreams, disappointments, and challenges of Generation Me. GenMe has created a profound shift in the American character, changing what it means to be an individual in today's society. The collision of this generation's entitled self-focus and today's competitive marketplace will create one of the most daunting challenges of the new century. Engaging, controversial, prescriptive, funny, "Generation Me" will give Boomers new insight into their offspring, and help those in their teens, 20s, and 30s finally make sense of themselves and their goals and find their road to happiness.

    Review quote
    "Twenge does a huge, decidedly un-GenX amount of research and replaces [hunches] with actual data.... [L]ucid and entertaining...bold...refreshing." -- Chris Colin, author of "What Really Happened to the Class of '93"
