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

"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.
Readers be advised, this book will make you work. It's meant to be both practical as well as academically rigorous.
The material is excellent, the research was done right, and I've seen the benefits of applying this, both in my own ministries and in others' ministries. You can't go wrong.
