This is a good, first-to-market attempt meant specifically for Millennials to manage their career paths, including managing others and “By Generation” overview tips. It’s useful for other generations: as a Gen X-er, I wish I’d read it before managing a couple Millennials, who indeed showed some of the following strengths and weaknesses: Assets: Goal-oriented, positive attitude, tech-savvy, collaborative, and multicultural awareness. Liabilities: Distaste for menial work, lack skills for dealing with difficult people, lack of experience, confidence beyond ability, and impatient. Fascinating discussion on the internal vs. external locus of control and how this may lead to hesitant Millennial leaders. At 218 pages, some of the managerial topics are necessarily short and if you don't buy the theory that time periods distinctly influence a cohort of people, the generational observations won't apply. There are, however, good endnotes and a bibliography for further reading and development. There are some odd generalizations I don’t agree with—supposedly the generations all dislike each other’s music? but there’s also some amusing comments: “A watch is a device that tells you the time of day if you don’t have your smart phone with you.”
