The Defining Decade
Why Your Twenties Matter--And How to Make the Most of Them Now
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

Perfect push to be introspective
Made me think a lot about where I’m going and how I’m planning my future. Really important read for anyone in their 20s.
This book is a must read during your 20's! I read it twice and read it every other night because it teaches so much.
I don't read many books, but this one was full of relevant and useful advice for twenty somethings.
Definitely worth getting!
