The Defining Decade
Dr Meg Jay's bone-chilling version of your mom's "YOU ARE WASTING YOUR LIFE" ! Just in a nicer, more PhD-ish version.
The book is divided into sections:
2. Love and
3. The Brain and The Body
While it was referred to me during some of my most difficult times, I cannot say how much it helped to resolve internal conflicts and aid decision making. What it did help with is realizing how much of my life I have wasted and bring a panic attack ! Nevertheless, it is a useful tool to have for every 20-somethings. Hey, the truth is never easy anyway !
