The breezy vocabulary of this kind of study is familiar to most people—Are Gen X-ers still slackers? Will Gen Y-ers ever move out of the house?

The discussion also provides examples of generational conflicts in school, home, and the workplace—and reveals how these clashes can be understood and resolved. So what will we be looking out for and preparing for next – who comes after Generation Z?
