These two books, by author Fran Kick, combine a comprehensive collection of studies, surveys, research articles and news stories, along with his own anecdotes gathered during two decades of traveling across the U.S. talking with and working with the millennial generation as they grew up. Research-based with real world relevance, this series brings together the best of the best in substantive work on this generation of kids. The result is an eclectic blend of thought from many different areas, including generational influences, psychology, motivational theory, parenting, education, and management.

Designed as a compass of thought, the first book provides a framework through which to view Millinnials by exploring the many influences and inspirational factors that impacted this generation growing up (born 1980–2000±).

The second book builds on the overall framework of the first, while mapping out what inspires kids specifically at home, providing pragmatic steps you can take to reach them, teach them, and lead them.

As entertaining as they are informative, these books will get you looking at, and thinking about, Millennials in a new way. It will help you raise, teach, manage, lead, and mentor a more self-motivated generation who will have the attitude and skills necessary to KICK IT IN & TAKE THE LEAD!
