Summary
Why are 20-somethings delaying adulthood? The media have flooded us with negative headlines about this generation, from their sense of entitlement to their immaturity. Drawing on almost a decade of cutting-edge research and nearly five hundred interviews with young people, Richard Settersten, Ph.D., and Barbara E. Ray shatter these stereotypes, revealing an unexpected truth
Summary
Challenges stereotypes about the characters of semi-dependent young adults, arguing that a gradual shift toward independence can enable higher-paying jobs and more responsible marital attitudes
