As you can see, this is the 2.0 version of this book. It was originally published in 2004 as hurt and was re-released in 2011 under this new title, hurt 2.0. I did not read the original release, but in the preface to 2.0 he tells many of the updates and additions to this version.
I recommend reading this book and then keeping it handy as a guide for future reference. The second section of the book has nine chapters, each dealing with a different struggle that our young people might be facing. He deals with topics such as peers, school, sports, sex, stress, partying, and many others in this section that takes up the majority of the book. These are sections that you will be turning to often as you deal with different issues that arise.
I have read a few books similar to this one and there are a lot of books that give similar statistics and deal with the issues that our young people are facing today. This one seemed different. The work that was put into his research shows throughout and you understand why he says the things he does. If you work with young people, or if you are a parent, you need to get this book. It will open your eyes to a whole new world that our young people are living in.
