Robin Miles delivers a great performance, matter-of-fact with just enough emotion to keep me interested. It's a shame the book itself is so shoddy. Sometimes contradicting itself, sometimes flat-out wrong (the Space Shuttle Enterprise launched in 1983?), this book reads like it was frankensteined together from parts of other Millennial management books to cash in on a trend.
Keeping the Millennials manages to be simultaneously patronizing to Boomers and Millennials alike, glossing over legitimate concerns about organizational values and career paths, and focussing on trite incentives like freshly-baked cookies. Early in the book, it claims the Millennials were the first generation to "grow up with technology", but later spends way too much time lauding the Boomers for growing up with TV, Sputnik, and the moon landings, and for creating the personal computer.
There are much better guides out there for managing young employees. Don't waste your money on this one.
