Publisher's Summary

Millennials vs. all other generations: Everyone reads the headlines. Millennials aren’t buying diamonds or saving for retirement. Millennials want cushy jobs handed to them by organizations with futuristic nap pods. Millennials are killing the housing market because they eat too many avocados. 

The truth is, millennials were raised being told they could do anything if they worked hard, and then they worked hard only to be told the world owes them nothing. Here’s a headline people need to read: Millennials were set up. 

The strength of generational differences: The older generations begrudge so-called dependence on technology and social media, but this connection allows millennials to join together and adapt to new challenges faster than ever before. It allows people to plan massive socio-political movements at the drop of a hat, learn about new concepts and cultures, and understand more about ourselves and each other. 

Social media and social awareness: Social media has spread the word about recognizing emotional abuse and its effects on mental health and behavior, inspiring younger generations to take back agency and power. For every injustice someone experiences, they can find someone else to say, “Me too. You are not alone.” 

Millennials rising and revolting: The tide of young adults standing up for themselves is culminating in massive societal change. The Gaslighting of the Millennial Generation uncovers the misconceptions about millennials, examining not only their unique strengths but also the baggage they have inherited from Baby Boomers. It shows just how different millennials are from previous generations and why that’s a very good thing.

So Controversial Yet So Brave

This novel comes from an insightful author with very clear messaging about the millennial experience. Pro-avocado. The narration is of high quality.

telling me what I want to hear.

It was a good book and I reccomend it to those unversed in the social sphere,, but identify as a millennial. It is more practical and approachable rather than deeply analytical or historical. The political basis is solidly liberal(neoliberal to be specific) so the critiques of capitalism are there but it is not capitalism's fault. If you are a dedicated leftist you may already know the issues presented here, and if you are on the right you will not last past the dating chapter. Still the data and advice presented in the book are factual and good, and the author helps display the changes Millenials are making in society and I don't want to rate it less because I wanted more out of it.
