Publisher's Summary

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 20s 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.

The Defining decade

I love this book, I love the narrator and I love what it's about, I love the short stories about each of her patient, but I don't follow what its preaching. This book feels like being slapped with a truth bomb, it make sense to me, I know I need to stop drifting and claim my life, but I don't do it. Yet I still love the idea behind what Meg is talking about, it pushes me to make minor steps. It's definitely a book that should be read by all 20 somethings, these years matter, even through were thought that we have plenty of time to figure it out and can just keep on doing the meaningless stuff we do.

As it says on the tin :)

Sage thought-provoking stuff I have been challenged to think about now. Helpful mix of research and personal accounts - very digestible.
