Share Article

Non-Millennials who want to acquire a deeper understanding of the Millennial culture are set to get broader, further insight about the Millennial generation following the launch of the new book, "The Millennial Mentality: More Than Memes, Cats & Mishaps."

Through the book, non-Millennials will gain a better understanding of what Gen-Yers are all about, what cultural revolutions they are sparking, their need for women’s equality and the complete inclusion of everyone’s rights.

Written by author Elan Carson, "The Millennial Mentality: More Than Memes, Cats & Mishaps" explores the ups and downs, ins and outs of Millennial culture through the eyes of a successful and entrepreneurial Millennial who has experienced her own share of struggles and disappointments. Filled with personal stories and candid commentary, Carson’s description of what makes Millennials tick and how to best deal with them provides enlightening insights for those not of the Gen-Y generation while having fellow Millennials nodding their heads in agreement.

"The Millennial Mentality" examines one of the world’s most dynamic and misunderstood generations, Generation-Y, also known as Gen-Y or Millennials. Millennials are today’s most fascinating generation because they are disrupting traditional standards, demanding a more culturally inclusive society, and using their hyper-connectivity to initiate worldwide social and political reform.

More than any other, Gen-Y is globally connected and using that power to effect change.

As with the many Tweets, Snaps, Facebook updates, and Instagram posts they receive and read almost every minute of every day, Millennials will enjoy reading "The Millennial Mentality" to share the stories of one of their own, agree or disagree (to themselves or via social media) with Carson’s comments and conclusions, and even learn a thing or two about their generation.

When asked about the motivation for her second book, Carson said: "I was inspired by Chuck Klosterman's ‘Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs.’ My book is not as light as KIosterman's, however. I focus instead on heavy subject matters from the myth of the post-racial society to the deeper connection this generation is establishing with the feminism movement, and other divisive issues. The goal is to change the way people think about Millennials in a positive way."

Through the book, non-Millennials will gain a better understanding of what Gen-Yers are all about, what cultural revolutions they are sparking, their need for women’s equality and the complete inclusion of everyone’s rights, and even why Millennials take so many selfies. The enlightening book helps any non-Millennial understand Millennials much better empowering them to work together more productively, more effectively manage Millennials in the workplace, and better relate to them in any setting.

"The Millennial Mentality: More Than Memes, Cats & Mishaps" is available in paperback format on Amazon for a retail price of $16.99 or as an eBook for $9.99. For more information, or to read an excerpt please visit

About The Author

Elan Carson knows more than anyone should about Generation-Y, partly because she is a pesky Millennial herself. As a proud cat owner, author of "The Willow Tree" and TEDx speaker, few can speak better to the causes, needs and survival mechanisms of dealing with the “Me Generation.”

For the past two years, Elan has researched important facets of Millennial culture, including how to work with and manage Gen-Y–crucial information for Baby Boomer and Generation-X business leaders–, the emergence of the “delayed adulthood” identity thanks to massive student loan debt and helicopter parenting, and even how diversity and inclusion is still a divisive topic as Millennials spark a new civil rights movement to put to rest claims of a post-racial society.

Working to educate others by breaking down the taboos and cultural criticism that often define Millennials, Elan demonstrates that they are actually radical do-gooders, social activists and the poorest generation of overachievers you will ever meet.

Speaker, author and cat-enthusiast, Elan Carson exemplifies and embraces the Millennial culture to a tee, offering incredibly intelligent insights from the lens of a Gen-Yer.
