Martin Wattenberg addresses the issue of civic participation among the young in his other writing but takes on the issues in the whole of this book. Unfortuneately he did not really raise any new issues or answer them any differently than he did in previous books- he just gave a more in depth look at the issue. If you've read other Wattenberg books I don't think you'll find this one up to par, but if you are a researcher of youth participation it's worth the quick read.

I received the book one day earlier than expected, thank you Amazon ! This book is great for anyone interested in issues regarding the youth vote, it uses figures and facts such as the decline of the consumption of hard news to explain why young voters care less about politics.

This book is far from being a scholarly work. The author is presumably old, and has a great hatred for the world's youth. Nearly the entire book says the exact same thing, life isn't what it used to be and I'm going to blame young people, because I'm not one of them. Besides misrepresenting facts and statistics, Wattenberg hurls his bigotry at you in a most arrogant and unintelligible fashion. Anyone judges someones intelligence based on whether or not they read the newspaper is clearly too judgemental and out dated for paying any mind. Save your time and money, this pile belongs in the rubbish bin.
