Blogging Teen 2.0

I'm reading through Robert Epstein's Teen 2.0 for our next San Diego youth ministry cohort gathering in August. From the back cover:
Dr. Robert Epstein, distinguished researcher and former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, offers a radical and groundbreaking formula for ending teen turmoil: Give teens ways to escape from the inane, media-dominated world of teen culture and get rid of the legal and social shackles that hold them back. If they can show they're ready, welcome them into the adult world.
I've got less than two months to read this enormous book on the cultural underpinnings of adolescence--especially extended adolescence--and comprehend its implications for youth ministry, parenting, and American culture as a whole.

So I thought I'd blog about it.

Never blogged through a book before. I'm hoping it will keep me accountable to reading it and force me to articulate and clarify my own thoughts and reactions. Whether you've read the book or not, I'd love this to be an ongoing conversation in the comments. So feel free to add your own thoughts and reactions as I blog Teen 2.0!
