Book Review - The Sigfluence Generation
Sigfluence is a word invented by John F. Loase in 1984. It means significant, long-term, positive influence. After 20-plus years of research, Loase recently had a big breakthrough. He found that 18- to 25-year-olds have an especially high need to affect sigfluence. However, The Sigfluence Generation needs guidance from the Baby Boomer Generation to fulfill its potential. Sigfluence is widely neglected, but is a fundamental human need. Loase believes we can transform America by focusing on sigfluence in business, education, politics and in our personal lives. According to Loase, "Sigfluence is a key concept to positively transform America. I was amazed at the potential and need for Sigfluence that I found among the 542 college students we surveyed over three years."
A lifelong resident of Westchester County, New York, author John F. Loase has been writing for 25 years. The Sigfluence Generation is his eighth book. He completed the only doctorate in mathematics and psychology ever awarded by Columbia University Teachers College. Loase is a professor of mathematics at Concordia College in New York.

My Take on the Book
This book was interesting! I work with young adults everyday and this book takes these individuals and helps them understand that there is a lot for them to learn from their elders. His words are inspirational and allow the reader to see the potential in this young group of adults. Tough I see this group everyday and can relate to much of what the author is sharing, I would agree that this group does have amazing potential and I am seeing many rise to meet the challenge.
The book was well written and clear and shares so much information in its few pages.
If you want to be inspired at what the next generation can do, or if you know someone in this generation that could use a bit of a jump start, this book is definitely one that I would highly recommend!
