I think the premise of this book is decently interesting, however there's truly no cookie cutter theory to shape the "millennial workforce" or any workforce for that matter. Each person is different and unique with very individual circumstances. If I were to tell Javier to follow-up with this book I'd tell him to highlight millennial profiles, where he'd take on different case studies and apply them to each type of millennial. I've known and worked with Javier for sometime so I have a sense of his way of doing business and he can be an impressive person with a strong leadership style, this is highlighted well in this book. The interview section an talent recruitment section should be the reason you read it. There's a vast amount of power here from an employer looking to hire talent from any skill set or age range, not just millennials.
I also wish that Javier would have included more take-away pieces in each chapter. Yes, he mentioned them but obvious things like a mission statement are basic. We all know most companies have or are at least aware of the vision/mission statement. What I want are more wide ranging tools like the interview models, but then I also feel like you'd have to change the scope of the content in general.
A side note on performance: please revise this book and omit the "scratch-scratch" errors. All in all, I'm impressed yet unsatisfied. There should be more tools and strategies on developing a millennial work force. Still don't let that deter you from listening to what Javier has to say. This is a fantastic audiobook for any entrepreneur who is completely clueless about the millennial generation.
I manage a large team of millenniums and as you read this book you can see all the issues that have happened over the years play out in the book.
