What if life came with an instruction manual?
Generation LOST – Learning, Leveraging and Living Lessons for a Successful Life examines who we were, are, and can be, how we got here and where we’re headed.
From September 11, 2001 to our battle against a pandemic in 2021, it has been a time unlike any before. Anyone who was alive or born during that period is now a member of what is being called the “Lost” generation. We have lost lives, countless businesses, hope, faith, trust, security, education, precious moments and more.
Award-winning author, Lisa Luciano, takes a brutally honest look at what we’ve experienced as individuals as well as a nation and what we must do to find our way forward. She offers her unique perspective as a teacher who over the course of 40 years observed generations of students and parents who have abandoned the values that shaped a society and built a country that was the envy of the world.
With facts, stories, advice, tips and resources the book also examines how we have changed as human beings and why we must rediscover and pass on to our children the principles that represent the best in us.
She takes aim at:
- Education and parenting in America
- Addiction, obsession and abuse
- Lost principles we must regain: commitment, trust, forgiveness, self-control, communication, motivation, truth, free speech, faith, respect, balance, honesty, joy and perseverance
- Destructive emotions that threaten our daily lives: disappointment, frustration, anger, rejection, jealousy, denial, entitlement, apathy, hatred, intolerance and senseless violence
- The cancel culture media wars
- The importance of history and personal heritage
… and more
Her experience as an acclaimed investigative journalist offers a take-no-prisoners approach to what has to change and how we can get there.
If you find yourself looking for hope and a positive direction, Generation LOST is the right book at the right time.
And your time to heal, change and grow is now!

“The best teacher in life is adversity. I’ve seen it over and over again mentoring countless startups over the years. The best outcomes are usually found by the companies that have either had the highest hurdles to overcome or the wisdom to know which battles to avoid entirely and find other ways to attack their market.

We live in a world full of noise. We are told to succeed. We ask ourselves if we are a success. Day and night we are bombarded with something outside of ourselves to buy or attain so that we can succeed.
Most of the time, we think that our lives are too complex, too difficult, and too unique to become better by “small” changes. You hold in your hands the story of one man’s journey as he discovers through everyday experiences that this belief is just not true.
Jim doesn’t offer magic bullets or secret formulas for success because there isn’t any. Truth be told, success—your personal success—is revealed to you by focusing on the “small” internal changes you can authentically make every single day.
The Better Way we are all searching for is within each of us. It’s not reserved for a special few, and it doesn’t require sacrifice. The Better Way only requires you to constantly choose it, because it has already chosen you.

Pete Kennedy knew as a child that he was not being served. Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, he was looking for a leader but couldn’t find one. A distant father, being low-income, surrounded by crime, all of these factors pushed Pete down a path he might not have traveled if he had better direction. Pete Kennedy chronicles his life choices based on what he never had: real leadership. When a Man Loves is a captivating story about a young Jamaican man navigating the world without much-needed guidance. This story is one man’s journey navigating masculinity and all the traps it sets. Pete Kennedy witnessed how men have failed in their culture, their families, and themselves without it. He saw it with his own eyes.

Part memoir, part self-development, When a Man Loves illustrates how men can learn how to be leaders and untangle themselves from society’s toxic expectations. Through travel and therapy, Pete discovers how to live an honest, connected life. Within these pages, Pete shows us how to become the leaders we all have inside of us and how to set ourselves up for success. We learn what the MUST, SHOULD, COULDs are of our lives, and how to live a life of love through leadership. Pete teaches us to apply leadership in every facet of our lives: our families, friendships, and careers.
