Synopses & Reviews
The practical followup to the acclaimed bestseller
In 2001, the groundbreaking book Quarterlife Crisis® addressed the unique and unsettling trials of entering modern adulthood. For the first time, it identified how twentysomethings were lost and confused, and lamented the absence of a guide-a roadmap with solutions for how to emerge from the crisis successful, happy, and sane.
Now, the author of Quarterlife Crisis® delivers that roadmap. Alexandra Robbins goes beyond defining the problem of the quarterlife crisis and puts readers on the path to conquering it. She asks-and answers-the tough, soul-searching questions that keep young adults awake at night:
- How do I weigh doing what I love versus making money?
- Will I ever find my "soul mate"?
- Why is it so hard to make friends?
- Why are my twenties so different from what I expected?
With new voices as well as follow-up interviews with some of the original Quarterlife Crisis® twentysomethings, Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis® is the new go-to guide for people who want it all...but just aren't sure what that is yet.
The practical follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Quarterlife Crisis, providing advice from twentysomethings who have been there and survived.
The author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Quarterlife Crisis"--which addresses the unique and unsettling trials of entering modern adulthood--now provides advice culled from from actual twentysomethings who have survived their trials.
