Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

In 2001, Alexandra Robbins delivered the sad news that being 20-something wasn't necessarily a bed of roses. Her Quarterlife Crisis squelched Me-Generation misconceptions about those supposedly "no sweat" post-college years. In Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis, she sketches out a road map for navigating past those vexing young adult problems: Will I ever find my soul mate? Why is it so hard to make friends? How do I choose between pursuing my dreams or pursuing big bucks?
