Focused on the differences between Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z, Generations by Jean M. Twenge discusses her research exploring the trends within and across these generations. Twenge delves into the societal shifts, technological advancements, and cultural changes that shape each generation's values and behaviors. With insights into how generational characteristics influence various aspects of life, this book offers a comprehensive analysis of the dynamics evolving across different age groups. It also serves as a resource for understanding how historical events and cultural shifts shape the attitudes, behaviors, and expectations of various generations. Twenge discusses at length how the rise of technology, particularly the internet and social media, has significantly influenced communication styles, social interactions, and mental health across different generations. The book suggests how these technological changes have shaped the perspectives and behaviors of individuals within each generation, and provides an intriguing perspective on the evolving dynamics of society.
