The Defining Decade – Meg Jay, PhD

By 2015-02-16Latest Read

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.

This book came highly recommended, from a very well regarded friend. Hesitant at first to read it, once I had finally begun, I resented every minute I had waited to do so. Packed full of developmental keys and research, many chapters not only applied directly to me, but left me feeling un-alone and inspired.

Although this book is about and geared towards “twentysomethings”, the information remains vastly applicable to all ages and demographics. The most common emotion I have felt throughout the readings is “I wish I had this book sooner”.
