    Sharanya Haridas

    The author, clinical psychologist Meg Jay, is an expert on this demographic. Contemporary culture sees the twenties as throwaway years where you're meant to be "exploring" and having vaguely defined "experiences." However, the things we do or don't do have consequences for the rest of our life. Jay offers a concrete guide to navigating this uncertain landscape, taking control and taking concrete action with what you know and have right now. I've recommended this book to all my twenty-something friends.
