Read full description of the books Quarterlife Crisis: How to Get Your Head Round Life in Your Twenties:I picked this book up because one of my friends showed me the website that goes along with the book. Even when I looked at the cover I was unsure how I felt about it.
I'm normally a fast reader, but this one took me a long time to get through - I think because as one other reviewer pointed out, its mostly other 20-something's whining about how difficult their lives are. Now, don't get me wrong... as a 27 year old, I know that things are difficult. I know it's hard to make decisions, find the right job, make new friends, and establish a lasting relationship. Oh trust me, I know.
I didn't need a 200 page book to tell me that. Or to tell me that other people feel that way.
So - what's good about the book? For people who do not have established friendships with people who are also going through a crisis, as small as it may be, it is probably reassuring to know that others go through it. And their reassurance that "its ok to go to therapy" is nice. But what it doesn't give is real coping mechanisms that we can use in our day to day lives to get through the crisis. If we're all searching for ways to make better decisions, and we're missing the guidance that college offered - then give us what college did. Give us tools to survive, not just "I can relate" stories.

Hailed by the press as “an excellent stylist and a first-rate mind” and “a media celebrity,” Robbins has developed a riveting signature style of investigative journalism that reads like a fast-paced work of fiction. The New York Times said Robbins’ latest book, The Overachievers, an Editors’ Choice, “reads like very good ...fiction, thanks to its winning cast, its surprising plot twists and its pushy parents.” People Magazine named The Overachievers its Critics’ Choice, gave it four out of four stars and called it “impossible to put down,” and Entertainment Weekly called it “quick and riveting.”
This is Robbins' publisher's standard bio. She is not sure whether this bio should be in third person.
