This is a welcome handbook for millennials who want to succeed at work. Author Chip Espinoza, writing with Peter Miller, Curtis Bateman and Curtis Garbett, identifies corporate circumstances that millennials may see as roadblocks to success. The authors identify managers’ typical negative perceptions of millennials and explain how young adults may inadvertently fuel those perceptions. This guidebook outlines seven areas millennials should address that involve common complaints about their performance and behavior. Managers’ opinions of millennials are frankly negative, but millennials shouldn’t feel insulted. The authors are totally on their side and provide a friendly roadmap to the strange, new world of work. The book is designed with millennial readers in mind, given its clean layout, charts, graphics and worksheets. It helps millennials address beginners’ flaws and understand management’s perspectives. Despite its occasionally parental tone, getAbstract recommends this real-world manual to millennials seeking personal growth and career advancement.
