Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mid-20s through the mid-30s can be a time of difficult transition: the security blanket of college and parents is gone, and it's suddenly time to make far-reaching decisions about career, investments, even adult identity. When author Christine Hassler experienced such a quarter-life crisis, she found that she was not alone. In fact, an entire generation of young women is questioning their choices, unsure if what theyve been striving for is what they really want. They're eager to set a new course for their lives, even if that means giving up what they have.

Hassler herself left a fast-moving career that wasn't right for her and instead took the risk of starting her own business. Now, based on her own experience and interviews with hundreds of women, she shares heartfelt stories on issues from career to parents to boyfriends to babies. Yet she provides practical exercises, too, to enable the woman of today to chart a new direction for her own life.

Synopsis:

A primer for young women facing the quarter-life crisis of life's first transitions.

Synopsis:

Are you wrestling with a sense that you haven¹t done enough? Or you¹ve done it all and don¹t know what¹s next? If you¹ve ever wondered why you aren¹t enjoying the best years of your life, and why you¹re still mired in confusion about the choices you¹ve made or need to make, this book is for you.

Faced with a career she worked hard to achieve but didn¹t like and the disintegration of her relationship, author Christine Hassler started talking to other twenty-something women and discovered a pattern. Many women in their twenties (and thirties) feel unsettled and struggle to reassess their positions on what Christine calls the twenties triangle: Who am I? What do I want? How do I get it?

Throughout the book these questions become opportunities to identify and explore dreams and values. Rather than feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, readers can turn questions into maps that lead toward creating a career, a relationship and a life that fits just like a favorite pair of jeans.
