"Millennial Manifesto is a mega mental upgrade for anyone seeking to understand this great generation!" -- Wendy Lesko, Author, Youth! The 26% Solution, and Founder, Youth Activism Project

From the Author

Thank you for taking a look at Millennial Manifesto! We have worked hard to make Millennial Manifesto an introduction to our generation. If you’re a Millennial (28 or younger), then this book is written for you and it will detail for you some of the activism that exists in our generation as well as some of the activists shaping it. If you’re not a Millennial, then this book will introduce you to our world, which is being overlooked by the evening news and the national papers. This book documents our political priorities, profiles young leaders, and provides a roadmap for aspiring activists. We encourage you to check out millennialpolitics.com to learn even more.

We’ve researched this book for over five years and received help from hundreds of Millennials. While none of us alone can possibly claim to represent the entire generation, we have tried to briefly present the attitudes and behaviors of our peers. Although just a ‘sampler,’ this book will give you a good taste of where a majority of youth stands today, and where we are going tomorrow.

Our generation has no excuse not to be engaged and work for social change. We must not sit idly by and listen to the band play on as our nation sinks, unable to overcome partisan rhetoric and a public turned off to our failing democracy. We will not be passive participants in our nation’s politics; it is time for us to make ourselves be heard!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mark #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 22, 2004
Format: Paperback
Scott Beale and Abeer Abdalla have done it! They have written a book about our generation, different from Generations X & Y. We are defined by the turn of the Millenium, September 11th, and the rise of the internet. Millenials are unique, and it's time for us to take action.

The thing that makes this book so refreshing is the way it attempts to show multiple sides of the issues. It's not a democratic book or a republican book. It has both the right and left represented, as well as all the shades in between that are meaningful for our diverse generation. For that alone, it deserves to be read! In this day and age where both parties twist the truth to the extreme just to futher their own agendas, it's great to read a book that tries to actually present the info and let you decide.

Where this book does come up short is in depth and editing. Depth because some complex issues are brushed upon way too lightly. Editing, because this book shows the effects of being self-published, including spelling and gramatical errors. As a freelance editor, I can tell you, editing is CHEAP! I hope the authors avail themselves of a professional editor for the second edition.

But it's natural that the full depth of every issue will not be touched upon in a book that attempts to cover so much ground. This book is ambitious. It attempts to outline all the major issues facing our current generation.

One of the greatest things about this book is the wealth of resources it provides throughout. There are websites, other books, organizations, and advice listed in the book to help YOU get involved and learn more about the role Millenials must play in our system. It belongs to us just as much as to any other generation!

That's the greatest thing about the book. Minor shortcomings aside, this book is a call to ACTION. Register to Vote! Take this book, read it, get out there, and GET ACTIVE!!!
