Wisdom Meets Passion When Generations Collide and Collaborate

Wisdom Meets Passion When Generations Collide and Collaborate By Dan Miller and Jared Angaza

This book is written by a father/son team.  Its purpose is to  explain the difference between Generation X & Y’s career goals and work ethics and how the wisdom of the older can be partnered with the passion of the younger to create change in the world while earning a profit.  It is helpful in that its down to earth style is understandable while using humor to advance its ends. 

It has been noted that the book is repetitive of past writings, but I have not read their other works, so cannot comment on that issue.  Another referenced that it was impracticable that "God will provide a job" was cited instead of education.  I think the book doesn't suggest it is a matter of either/or.  For instance, it states talents that are "God-given" and then discusses what we should do with them.  This suggests a certain religious sentiment but not merely so.

I did not find the book particularly amazing or anything but it is a perfectly good read and recommend people check it out.
