Format: Paperback
This book is an accurate and interesting introduction to the subject of generational differences. It's divided into short chapters regarding different areas people from different generations view things differently, this makes the book valuable even if you haven't got time to read all of it (this, though, means that you'll have to read some explanations more than once if you read the entire book, it might feel a little bit repetitative).

There are only two bad things about the book, in my opinion. The first is that it is a little too focused on work related subjects, at least for my purpose for reading it. The other thing is that the book is getting a bit old. I really hope that it's authors will make a new and updated edition soon...

I great read/text for learning the basic tennants of generational studies. Many will say that this is a waste of time, others will say that it is the future of communication. This book however, cuts through all of that and just lasy out the history of generations and goes on to describe (in detail) the main characteristics of each generation.

This book woudld be great for a text book or reference book as well for anyone who interacts with a wide range of generations and people groups.

You will never look at your boss/coworker/staff the same agin.

Revelations on why the generations are so different are great.
Gave me greater insight into who I am and why I behave the way I do.

Format: Paperback
I have been both a Pastor and a Critical Care Paramedic for 25+ years. This book by Graeme Codrington should be a MUST READ by anyone and everyone who is a Parent, in a Leadership role or position, Boss, Pastor, or anyone who deals with people on a daily basis.

Graeme presents in this book a very well researched, documented, entertaining, and easy to understand read about the DIFFERENCES that make up the 'generations' (E.g. The Silencers, GIers, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, etc.)

Reading this book will not only help you understand 'HOW' we differ, but also 'WHY'. And in doing so, it will not only give you new insights to the uniqueness of our differences, it will alos help you appreciate who you are. And, IF APPLIED, it could enhance interpersonal relationship, improve any business and church or organization, etc. in knowing how to effectively reach, lead, manage, impact, and appreciated those who THINK and ACT "different" than we do - To 'know' the people we are trying to reach. This book will help you to finally realize that it's NOT that 'they are wrong' and 'we are right'. But it IS how we DIFFER and are UNIQUE - and in doing so, how best to understand and interact with each other.

Needless to say, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. In fact, on a scale from 1 to 10 with '10' being the 'highest' rating I could possibly give it, I could easily give it a 10,000,000. Yes, it REALLY IS that good.

This book should be REQUIRED READING for EVERYONE. Especially those that lead others (as well as read by every parent).
