Item Description...
Focuses on the challenges, choices, responsibilities, and difficulties confronting young adults as they make the transition from college to the real world, offering helpful advice on finding a job and establishing a career, handling finances, creating a home away from parents, building new social networks, and more. Original. 15,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
While the midlife crisis has been thoroughly explored by experts, there is another landmine period in our adult development, called the quarterlife crisis, which can be just as devastating. When young adults emerge at graduation from almost two decades of schooling, during which each step to take is clearly marked, they encounter an overwhelming number of choices regarding their careers, finances, homes, and social networks. Confronted by an often shattering whirlwind of new responsibilities, new liberties, and new options, they feel helpless, panicked, indecisive, and apprehensive.

Quarterlife Crisis is the first book to document this phenomenon and offer insightful advice on smoothly navigating the challenging transition from childhood to adulthood, from school to the world beyond. It includes the personal stories of more than one hundred twentysomethings who describe their struggles to carve out personal identities; to cope with their fears of failure; to face making choices rather than avoiding them; and to balance all the demanding aspects of personal and professional life. From "What do all my doubts mean?" to "How do I know if the decisions I'm making are right?" this book compellingly addresses the hardest questions facing young adults today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a book that could have been great but fails  Apr 30, 2008
Reader beware. ALL this book mentions are the challenges (true to it's title). There is hardly any deep insight or further investigating of these challenges. No psychology. No parent's fault. No government schools commentary. Nothing.

The book is mainly a collection of 1/2 page stories of college aged kids giving these really boring recounts of the specific issue of the chapter you happen to be reading. And these "various" college/post college kids making comments on the quarterlife crisis ... all their musings sound like its been written by the same freakin person! No color ro personality at all in the stories.

Being 26 years old myself, you'd think this book would really impact and strike a chord with me, but its emotionless and, well, boring. It has the literary content aimed for a middle schooler.

NOTE: Im talking about the book only. If you disagree with me, please dont confuse your assertion that there IS a quarterlife crisis with the penmanship and contents of this snorefest of a book. All this book talks about is the EFFECTS of a quarterlife crisis. The book does not mention any CAUSES. Very superficial "analysis".
Get Over It  Aug 28, 2007
It took two years for the "crisis" to hit me after I graduated from college. I was, and still am, experiencing everything the "crisis" comprises of.

I've always felt self-conscious about sounding like I couldn't handle life, and so I kept quiet about my fear of failure, doubts about my choices, and concerns about my future. I knew I wasn't alone, either, so the book failed to help me there.

What the book did do, however, was make me want to get past this point in my life as quickly as possible.

I appreciate these people sharing and being honest, as it was their honesty that made me realize how we Twentysomethings sound when we express our feelings about our "crisis" -- like freakin' whiners.

Although this book dishes out no advice, it has propelled me to put my head down and ram through my fears. 9/11 hit my senior year and that's when I turned my back on pursuing a career related to my degree and began writing my first novel. I will resume submitting the manuscript I abandoned a year ago, and while I'm putting my hard work out for others to judge, I will finish the second novel I'm in the middle of creating.

Writing, though tedious and frustrating at times, is what makes me happy. I will go to work and see my job for what it is-- a job that, as long as I pursue my dreams, I will never get stuck in.

I say get the book. Reading one story after the other might help you realize that you have no choice but to get on with your life and get over it. That's all.

maybe it's not a crisis  Jul 23, 2007
these gals define a concept but life in your 20s isn't always a crisis. i wanted society to pay attention to the hardships of life in your 20s, but now i feel bad for all the 20-somethings who are pegged as overindulgent whiners.
A lot of relatable material for someone in their twenties  May 11, 2007
I actually enjoyed reading this book. It had a lot of stories that I could relate to. And it assured me that my feelings of anxiety/depression are normal among others my age.

I do agree with other reviewers that there were no answers in the book... But why would you expect there to be??? The answers that some of us are seeking are within ourselves, and unfortunately no one (other than you, yourself) can solve your problems for you.

This book talks a lot about actually making decisions and trusting that they will work out Ok. But the authors can't guarantee that everything will be Ok, no one can. If readers are interested in finding all the answers to life through reading a book, then they really should give up the search - they won't find the answers anywhere. Only when you live life will you learn whether the choices made were the right ones. And if nothing else, hopefully you've learned something from the experience - which is really the most important part anyway.
Good if you are in your twenties  Mar 14, 2007
I had to read this book for a class. Overall, it felt like the kind of book a person will enjoy and find interesting if he or she is just out of college and going through the "quarterlife crisis." Otherwise, it seems too intent in demonstrating the existence and the characteristics of such a crisis. The book is composed mostly by excerpts from the interviewees, with few comments from the authors. If I didn't have to read it for the class I wouldn't have finished it, and I love to read almost any book.
