Description

A guide and blueprint to a purposeful millennial existence―and how we can make a difference.

What does it mean to be a millennial in this chaotic world? Beyond Snapchat and Tinder, the consumerist culture we've inherited, and quarter-life crises, can a millennial aspire to more?

Alison Lea Sher argues, yes, we can Packing herself up in an RV, Sher embarks on a road trip in hopes of starting a conversation about what it means to grow up in America, post-Great Recession. Interviewing 150 of her millennial peers as they begin their adult lives―from kids heading straight to Wall Street after college to those sleeping on it―Sher asks: "Who are you; what should you do; and how can you step into your destiny as a stakeholder in society?"

The Millennial's Guide to the Universe is a one-of-a-kind ethnographic study on the spotlighted millennial generation, as told by millennials―the largest generation in US history that is now transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. As millennials embark on a young adult quest during a frightening time, how can they enlist the idealism, values, and resistance politics they are so well-known for to discover a sense of self and purpose? Learn how to:

  • "Adult"―and not in the way society defines it
  • Ride the technology revolution, instead of letting it ride you
  • Be ethical, inclusive, and sex-positive in your relationships
  • Resist the corporate oligarchy we live in
  • Recognize privilege, embrace diversity, and fight for equality
  • Save the earth, literally
With intimate stories, ethnographic research, and practical tips, The Millennial's Guide to the Universe will inspire every young person, showing them how to optimize their coming-of-age potential in a world that desperately needs it.
