Read Retiring the Generation Gap, by Jennifer J. Deal, during my 17 hours on planes in the past 24 hours. The research is interesting because it debunks many of the sterotypes about generational conflict and issues.

But, I was disappointed. It is not very well written and is quite repetitive. Could have been covered in far fewer words, more succinctly and with more emphasis on relating the findings to real world corporate situations.

So, while I will take away some good nuggets from the research, the book itself wasn’t the exciting find I had hoped it would be.
