Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Youth ministry expert Chap Clark substantially updates and revises his groundbreaking book with a new chapter on youth at society's margins; fresh material on social networking and gaming; and the latest research, statistics, and documentation throughout.

"The youth of our culture have been deeply wounded by our collective neglect and adult-driven self-focus. Young people need adults to understand what they are going through and people to care about them without a personal agenda. This book was very helpful to me, and my attitude toward teens will never be the same."--Doug Fields, speaker; author, Speaking to Teenagers

"As parents of teenagers and as a family deeply invested in developing the leadership potential of young men and women, my wife and I recognize in Hurt 2.0 what we have been seeing and sensing but haven't been able to name. Chap Clark's research has helped us to understand what kids today are experiencing and how we can create a better present and a brighter future for our youth."--Eric McAfee, Silicon Valley entrepreneur; venture capitalist; chairman, McAfee Capital

"Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Clark's Hurt 2.0 serves to open the eyes of parents, youth workers, pastors, educators, and youth-serving professionals to realities from which the church has too often chosen to look away. Hurt 2.0 offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."--Walt Mueller, president, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

"Chap Clark has spent years studying the lives and hearts of kids, and as parents of three teenagers, we are personally grateful for his insight and work. In Hurt 2.0, Chap takes us deeper into their world, helping us to better understand not only our own kids but also all young people."--Ronnie Lott, former All-Pro, NFL defensive back, and Karen Lott, children's advocate

What is the book about?
"Hurt 2.0' is about getting inside the world of today's teenagers. Chap's purpose is to share how life is different for today's high school students.

What do I think about it?
The research, stories, and candor is fantastic. This book will pop the eyes and open the minds of those who work with teens.

What got me pumped up?
The real-life-hold-nothing-back approach is wonderful . I don't have teenage kids yet but this book has given me tremendous insight into what is combating the way my wife and I want to raise our children.

What was deflating?
I thought there would be more updated material. Yes, there are a couple of new chapters as well as new stories here and there but for the most part this book is paragraph-for-paragraph of the first version.

"So, would you recommend it?"
Of course, you can't go wrong with Chap's research! But if you're expecting a whole lot more than what was included the first edition then you won't get it.

Format: Paperback
Hurt 2.0: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers by Chap Clark is the updated version of his first edition Hurt. In this updated edition, Clark has added a new chapter, updated material and research, and provided more documentation throughout his book. Clark continues to look into the lives of our youth today. Not only that, Clark is passionate about our youth today. With that said, here are some of my thoughts concerning Hurt 2.0.

Hurt 2.0 is compiled into three parts. In the first part, The Changing Adolescent World, Clark lays the foundation for his book. He examines two foundational issues (abandonment and the world beneath) that our youth are struggling with today. The second part, The Landscape of the World Beneath, seeks to examine aspects of the youth's life with the understanding from part one. In this section, the bulk of Clark's research appears. He looks into aspects of culture such as peers, school, family, sports, sex, and more. The last part, Where Do We Go From Here, searches for solutions and strategies to turn the tide of abandonment.

So to whom is Clark writing all of this? When I first received this book I would have said it was written to anyone seeking to understand youth. While I still hold to this position I do so only half heartedly. After reading the book, I would suggest that Clark seems to be writing to more scholarly minded people. I do think parents, youth pastors and other youth workers can benefit a great deal from this book. However, I do not see them as the primary audience of it. (Chap, if you read this, feel free to correct me if I am wrong).

With that said, here are a few things I really liked about the book and two things I struggled with.

I enjoy this book but also find it frustrating. Because I work with youth and kids and its troublesome to read that some of my kids may be seriously lonely. Its well written and enjoyable to read. But it has many moment where I have been angered and depressed from the authors findings. Its important to read this though. To not be in the fog of thinking everything is good with my youth ministry.

Clark continues the Hurt series with updated research in an attempt to keep up with the ever-changing world of the adolescent. He makes some very interesting points in terms of abandonment that adolescents experience, due to significant adults in their lives not being there. In our modern society, we have to remember the impact of always being on the run, dual income households, high divorce rates, and not keeping our number one goal in mind, insuring our own future by meeting the needs of the adolescents that will make up our care-takers later in life. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a unique perspective of the modern adolescent world.

If you are dealing with teens you should read this book. They are all hurting for one reason or another and Chap has an extensive understanding of the world they live in. Now the downfall to this book is that because it is so relevant to today's teens that I fear it may need to be updated every 5-10 years. But like I said brilliant work

This book is packed full of real-life examples in the trenches with kids. Much of what Chap Clark has to say about the social systems and the way youth are treated is troubling and eye-opening. It's an important read for people working with teenagers.
