From the Publisher
Our "thirty-is-the-new-twenty" culture tells us the twentysomething
years don''t matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others
call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical
psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a
swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized
what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood.
Drawing from a decade of work with hundreds of twentysomething
clients and students, THE DEFINING DECADE weaves
the latest science of the twentysomething years with
behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings themselves. The
result is a provocative read that provides the tools necessary to
make the most of your twenties, and shows 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-if we use the time wisely.
THE DEFINING DECADE is a smart, compassionate and
constructive book about the years we cannot afford to miss.
