Summary, etc.:
"Having tackled a far-reaching parenting crisis with her New York Times bestselling How to Raise an Adult, Lythcott-Haims is back with an equally powerful and persuasive book for the adult children of those hovering parents-and for everyone who struggles to be a grown-up in these challenging times"-- Provided by publisher.
In the twentieth century, psychologists came up with five markers of adulthood: finish your education, get a job, leave home, marry, and have children. Every generation since has been held to those same markers, but living in that sequence is no longer valid. Lythcott-Haims offers practical strategies for living a more authentic adulthood. Being an adult is not about any particular checklist; it is, instead, a process, one you can get progressively better at over time-- becoming more comfortable with uncertainty and gaining the knowhow to keep going. -- adapted from jacket
