I purchased the paperback edition for my daughter then immediately purchased the audiobook for myselfThe primary purpose of this book is to confront the unhelpful assumption that the twenties are merely a time of extended adolescence during which young people should goof off and try to find themselves The author demonstrates time and again that twenty somethings with focus and jobs and goals are happier and less adrift than those who are attempting to have the time of their lives Further the twenties are a time to lay valuable foundations for the rest of your life whether that be in terms of education and starter jobs or in terms of dating individuals you might have a future withThe book is divided into three sections Work Love The Brain and the Body Without summarizing her actual book let me point out some of the author's particular gems from my perspectiveWORK There is a difference between jobs that build capital and jobs that can be lumped into the category The Starbucks Years Your best opportunities are found among your weak ties not among your Urban Tribe of like minded thinkers Don't buy into the myth that everyone else's life is better just because of their carefully managed Facebook profilesLOVE Don't like the family you were born into Marriage is a good opportunity to find another family People who marry young have a higher rate of divorce but that ends at 25 Couples who live together before marriage are likely to divorce unless they were already engaged before moving in together; this occurs because it's easy to slide from dating to sleeping over to living together and from there to getting engaged to the person you were already living with even though you wouldn't have considered marrying this fun partner before moving in together because you didn't consider them marriage materialTHE BRAIN AND THE BODY Of course you feel incompetent at work That's because you are incompetent at work You're just getting started Mastery 10000 hours on task Don't forget reproduction You don't have as long as you think Worse if you have your first child at age 40 and they have their first child at age 40 that leads to 80 year old grandparents Doctors are seeing an epidemic of adults telling them to keep them alive for at least 20 years so they can finish raising their children But the most poignant of all was a tale from a man who had delayed marriage and children so he could have those good times during his twenties that everyone was encouraging him to have only to realize at 40 that he would give anything to have had 5 extra years with his son instead of 5 years wasted on trivialitiesOverall a very good readThe audiobook was read by the author with her slight Southern twang It was an enjoyable listen of around 5 hours

Amazing I wish I could force everyone I personally know in their twenties or even early thirties to read this Get it read it Just do itAs a 28 year old this book would have been even helpful to me 5 years ago but alas such is life And perhaps as someone a bit older this book is helpful to me in other ways as I can recognize a lot of things in hindsight So yes I think that anyone 17 32 can benefit from this to some degree or another This book has provided a lot of perspective for me on some of the mistakes I probably could have avoided with love work but it's also helped to pin point those mistakes learn from them and use it as fuel to move forward in the best way possible This isn't some spiritual chicken soup for the soul book in fact Meg pushes pretty hard for young people to AVOID those sentiments and not get caught up in the emotional traps that a lot of young adults these days are vulnerable to from TV movies their friends own parents etcShe wants twentysomethings to ask themselves the real tough uestions about relationships jobs money education and then answer them honestly It's actually all really practical well thought out advice from a highly skilled therapistprofessional in the field You don't have to relate or even agree with EVERY thing she says but nonetheless Meg provides perspective that everyone can identify with on some level The writing is great too; she does not talk down come off as condescending or dismiss anyones concerns she really gets on the same level as young adults who are strugglingThank you for this book Meg
