* * * *In her book, Dr. Meg Jay talks about the twentysomething years as being the foundation to your years ahead. Many times, she mentions that these years are not for wasting your time thinking that it will all fall into place once you hit 30, which is the perceived notion these days. Numerous times I hear people my age say "I will have my life figured out when I'm 30", "these are the best years of your life", and so on. However, Dr. Jay believes that these are the most important years.
Her book is organized into three sections: Work, Love, and The Brain and the Body. The chapters in all three sections use current psychological research, and examples from both her own twentysomething years as well as her clients to draw insight on current issues among twenty- and even thirtysomethings. The statement "30 is the new 20" is becoming a norm - work, relationships, and family are happening later than what our parent's experienced in their twenties. In this book, Dr. Jay tries to help twentysomethings, like myself, reclaim their twentysomething years. That these are not years meant to be wasted but rather spent creating a foundation for the rest of our lives.
Here is a snippet of what she talks about in her book!
