Jean Twenge‘s book, iGen, is for those of you who like your facts to be thoroughly backed up with stats. It will be of particular interest to those of you with children born after 1995, and perhaps help you understand a bit more about their world view. It reveals how iGen are actually quite different to millennials and some of the shocking facts about the spike in suicide and anxiety disorders for this generation.

Twenge is writing specifically about teens in the USA and while behavioural addiction to the internet appears to be widespread across the developed world there are some differences in trends between US teenagers and their European counterparts as the chapter on the subject of religion shows.
