Overview

In this book Mitchell investigates how "the natural limitations of youth" shape not only the day-to-day life of teens, but the entire culture. This book analyzes how adolescents are prone toward critical decision-making errors; how they are vulnerable to exploitation in their peer groups, in their friendships, and in their love relationships; how they are inclined to confuse fact with fable; how they are shaped by narcissistic idelogy and ego-enhancing belief systems; how they are inclined toward poor partner selection in their romantic involvements; and, finally, why they need dignified adult mentors if they are to achieve a dignified identity of their own.
