Overview

The practical followup to the acclaimed bestseller

In 2001, the groundbreaking book Quarterlife Crisis(r) 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(r) 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(r) twentysomethings, Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis(r) is the new go-to guide for people who want it all...but just aren't sure what that is yet.
