Overview

Love choices but hate choosing? Welcome to the club.

The Choice Effect is for young women who have all the opportunities in the world and no idea how to decide among them. It’s one thing to have lots of options when it comes to fulfilling careers or traveling the world—but what does it mean for our love lives? How can you know whether you’re with the right person—or if the time is right—when you haven’t vetted the other possibilities?

With hard-won insight, plus interviews with a whole host of other women who are living it, the twentysomething friends and authors of The Choice Effect explain why their generation is sidestepping traditional timelines. They look at the question of choice in the twenty-first century as they give voice to their generation’s dilemma: How do you choose when you’ve been taught you can have it all?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this wickedly funny bitch slap of a book, the authors establish themselves as the voice of a generation spoiled for choice. Williams, Vogel, and McGibbon nail the idiosyncrasies of the new old kids, baffled by too many options and paralyzed by their very freedom. I look forward to reading these brilliant authors’ analysis of Generation Y through parenthood, middle age, and into senility.” — Pamela Redmond Satran, author of the New York Times bestseller How Not To Act Old

The Choice Effect is a hilarious, breezy, and ultimately insightful look at ‘Choisters’ – the young women of the Y Generation – and the mountain of choices they face in love, life and online shopping.” — Gigi Levangie, author of the New York Times bestseller The Starter Wife

The Choice Effect navigates the liberating yet tricky terrain of a generation faced with an abundance of options–professional, romantic, and otherwise. This witty, clever, and insightful gem is the perfect guide for any young person who’s so overwhelmed by choices that it sometimes seems impossible just to make one.” — J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Commencement

“The sharpest take on dating in decades.” — Sara Parriott, author of Sex Doesn’t Count When…

The Choice Effect is intelligent, funny and true. If you are a twenty-something women or you ever wanted to understand one, this book is for you.” — Howard Morris, author of Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid
