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.

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.

Bunch of excuses

Literally a book filled with excuses as to why everything is someone else's fault. Sad to say this is the generation i was born

Typical millennial, always missing the point

I being a millennial wanted to explore the generational divide, but this author is not qualified to talk about this subject, and a lot of talking points in this book aged poorly.

meehhh

We are all entitled an opinion, I suppose, but that doesn't mean we should write a book. In the beginning I found it a little insightful. I was giving an open mind, but as it continued this turned into a biased, pitty part. I feel like the author was scolding the reader. To clarify, by definition I am considered a milineal. I can relate to these topics, but a lot of this was frustrating.

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.

Truth and More Truth

The oldest generations don’t want to hear how easy it was for them to go to college for damn near $700 and rent was $20 but when millennials stand up for better we’re called brats. Don’t let the bitter boomers lead you astray from the truth of this audiobook.

Love this

I love this book, love the author, love the message. It’s a much needed reminder of the REAL millennial generation that I know and love and am proud to be a part of.
