Life Path Solutions
We are living longer, more productive lives, resulting in conflict of values and belief systems. Misunderstandings in all aspects of today's society can often result because we don't take the time to understand what is important to others and why. This book will help you understand your own and other generations.
No one ever said it would be easy, but then again, no one ever thought we’d live this long. No one ever thought there would be four, five and sometimes six generations in the same household, in the same office, in the same world. . .
In today’s society we all come in contact with people from other generations – each having different values, beliefs, heroes and villains. How we communicate, work, live, and interact with each other can be either very pleasant and enjoyable or quite traumatic and stressful.
We are living longer more productive lives that often result in a clash of values and belief systems among the generations. Misunderstandings (and worse) in all aspects of today’s society often result because we don’t take the time to understand each other and find ways to peacefully coexist. Linda S. Thompson’s fourth book, Every Generation Needs a New Revolution talks about how six generations across nine decades can find harmony and peaceful coexistence.
My Mother used to tell me that a person had to at least reach age 30 before admitting their parents had any sense at all. Now I understand why she said that. Why do we need to set ourselves apart as we begin defining who we are? Why do we develop our own value systems and moral standards? Why, as we get older, do we tend to think more and more like our parents? Because it is human nature to "do our own thing - to should our independence," not realizing at the time, that each generation goes through the same process - just in different ways.

“Do you work with, employ, live with or sell to people from different age groups to your own? You do – me too – and that’s why I grabbed my copy of Every Generation Needs A New Revolution by Linda S. Thompson! This amazing book will show you how to communicate with, understand and appreciate the differences that span the generations. It’s also a wonderful research book with lots of easy to understand charts and stats, which are real gold dust. Make no mistake, this book will be the best book you read this year. If you want to get the very most out of your life, business and relationships, look no further than Every Generation Needs A New Revolution!”

From Don McCauley
“Every Generation Needs a New Revolution is wonderful. Normally I have a tendency to skim a bit here and there. However, I found myself reading every word. Very informative. Eye opening. A great topic. And I can't begin to tell you how I see myself (and my 75 year old dad and my 16 year old daughter) in a different light, to coin a phrase. This is a subject will certainly appeal to all the generations involved." - Don McCauley, www.freepublicitygroup.com
From Paula Wirth
"Linda Thompson delivers her usual savvy messages in her new book, Every Generation Needs a New Revolution. And she does it in her usual slightly irreverent and humorous style. I think I could read anything Linda wrote and get a new perspective, along with my chuckle for the day. Linda's books are packed with insight and knowledge, and she challenges you to think (or re-think) each topic in a fresh, new way. I loved this book, and I'll encourage our four twenty-and thirty-something children to read it too, so they can come to the same conclusion (hopefully!) that I did: There is nothing wrong with 'those other generations!' They just think, act and perform differently than we do! Just read it!"
