Publisher 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.

The best book I’ve read in 2020!

Wow... all twentysomethings need to grab a copy ASAP. I wish I found this book at 20. I am 27 and could relate to so many stories inside this book. I am so ready to now take action instead of watching my final years of my 20’s pass me by. Thank you Meg Jay!

As a 26 year old - I would call this my bible

As I approach my late twenties and still so very unsure about my future and what ‘path to take’ and this book has helped me in a lot of ways. I felt like every chapter related to my life at some point, by using clients personal stories it’s good to know that you’re not the only person out there who feels unsettled, worried, scared, alone and fearful of what’s ahead. I would recommend this book to anyone in their twenties unsure about how to live their life and if they think their doing it right. Thank you for an amazing read.
