There's a new type of teenage girl growing up in America today, and she is having a profound and beneficial influence on society. That's the conclusion of Dr. Dan Kindlon, the widely respected child and adolescent psychologist and the co-author of the bestseller Raising Cain. Dr. Kindlon supports his startling discoveries about the new "alpha girl" with groundbreaking research, including profiles, case studies, questionnaires and more. In Alpha Girls, Dr. Kindlon: presents innovative, newsworthy material about teenage girls that directly contradicts the thesis of Reviving Ophelia; looks at the many ways in which the accomplishments of the alpha girl's mother have helped to liberate her daughter; examines the dramatically different relationship between father and daughter today - and how it can transform a girl's psychological makeup, identity, and sense of self. Part of the first generation that is reaping the full benefits of the women's movement, today's American girl is maturing with a new sense of possibility and psychological emancipation. Dr. Kindlon provides us with an in-depth portrait of the alpha girl - a born leader who is ready to explode into adulthood and make her mark on the world and, by her example, serve as an inspiration for women everywhere.
