Description

Contemporary culture tells us the twentysomething years don't matter. Clinical psychologist Dr Meg Jay argues that this could not be further from the truth. In fact, your twenties are the most defining decade of adulthood. The Defining Decade weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with real-life stories to show us how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood. Smart, compassionate and constructive, The Defining Decade is a practical guide to making the most of the years we cannot afford to miss.

Critic Reviews

“Meg Jay takes the specific complaints of twentysomething life and puts them to diagnostic use”

New Yorker Any recent college graduate mired in a quarter-life crisis or merely dazed by the freedom of post-collegiate existence should consider it required reading Slate I strongly recommend The Defining Decade for anyone in their 20s trying to figure out their life's direction. You'll learn how to search productively, how to avoid being indulgent, and how to turn good opportunities into great ones -- Po Bronson author of What Should I Do With My Life? The Defining Decade is the book twentysomethings have been waiting for. It will not tell you what you should do with your life, but it will inspire, motivate, and educate you to figure it out -- Rachel Simmons author of The Good Girl The Defining Decade is eye-opening, important, and a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it -- Wendy Mogel author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus
