Disconnected: Why Our Kids Are Turning Their Backs on Everything We Thought We Knew

by Nick Barham - £7.99  Ebury Press (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780091897413 | ISBN 10: 0091897416

Nick Barham spent a year travelling the UK talking to British kids. Kids from all backgrounds, in different situations.
What he found was a generation profoundly different from those that have come before. They are not inheriting your culture - they're moving into a new improved version, with a permanent soundtrack (that you don't like), a new language (that you don't understand) and a radical morality (that you don't accept).
This is the compelling and real story of his journey of discovery. If you want to have any idea at all where the next generation is going, Disconnected is essential reading.

"It is refreshing to find a book that attempts to understand and enjoy the passionate technicolour diversity of modern youth culture."
(Daily Telegraph)
