Alpha Girls: Understanding the New American Girl

and How She Is Changing the World

Based on original research, Dan Kindlon argues that a post-feminist generation of American girls are

outperforming their males peers, and, as they move into adulthood, will increasingly come to dominate

our society (Rodale, 2006).

Wapner’s roles:

• Concept development • Proposal development and writing • Interviewing

• Co-writing • Editing

From the Acknowledgments:

“Special thanks go to…Kenneth Wapner…my longtime personal editor [who] was involved in every

dotted I and crossed T. I can’t imagine writing a book without him.”

“Buttressed by well-organized informational charts, Kindlon's lucid look into the social and psychological

world of these young leaders is well-paced and includes substantive interviews with the alpha girls

themselves. In addition to providing an inside look into the alpha girls' lives, and the feminist tradition

which they inherit, Kindlon's work explores the relationships alpha girls have with the men in their lives-

fathers and boyfriends, mostly-particularly in collegiate and post-collegiate life. With comprehensive

chapters on alpha girls at work, in love and in the family, this study is a must-have for anyone looking to

understand the upcoming generation's driven, confident and successful females.”
