Summary:

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 Every generation since has been held to those same markers, but living in that sequence is no longer valid.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
