Book #2: the defining decade by meg jay


6-7 p.m., Wed. Nov. 6 in the Collab, room 240. Pizza will be provided. Interested students can sign up at the first-floor Information Point and receive a free copy of the book. 

Book summary: The Defining Decade shows how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than any other time in adulthood–if we use this time well. Meg Jay argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most transformative period of our adult lives.
