Mass violence committed by young people is now an epidemic. In the first 14 school days of 2014, there were seven school shootings, compared to 28 school shootings in all of 2013. The reasons behind this escalating violence and the cultural forces that have impugned a generation is the subject of this important new book.
New York Times best-selling author Stephen Singular has often examined violence in America in his critically acclaimed books. Here he has teamed with his wife, Joyce, for their most important work yet - one that investigates why America keeps producing twentysomething mass killers. Their reporting has produced the most comprehensive look at the Aurora shooting yet and draws upon the one group left out of the discussion of violence in America: the twentysomethings themselves.
While following the legal proceedings in the Aurora shooting, The Spiral Notebook is full of interviews with Generation Z, a group dogged by big pharma and antidepressants and ADHD drugs, by a doomsday/apocalyptic mentality present since birth, and by an entertainment industry that has turned violence into parlor games.
Provocative and eye opening, The Spiral Notebook is a glimpse into the forces that are shaping the future of American youth, an entire generation bathed in the violence committed by their peers.

So Silly and misinformed
This book was almost frustrating to get through. Not helpful to the debate at all. Misinformation such as these shootings are a new occurrence, suggestions that violent video games may have some role to play, and anecdotes from "twenty somethings the adults don't listen too enough!" make this vapid, insulting, and downright dangerous for those trying to understand these problems in today's society.
