Reviews

"For decades now, there's been a psychological, existential crisis among America's young adults hiding in plain sight. There is no better person to address this than Satya Doyle Byock, who has made this age group her life's work. Quarterlife is compassionate, specific, forceful, lucid, and very wise. This is the book many people have been waiting for, whether they know it or not."--William Deresiewicz, New York Times bestselling author of Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite

"I'm obsessed with this book. If you're a younger millennial, or a Gen-Zer and trying to figure out why do I feel this way, why don't I feel satisfied, why do I always feel like I'm behind?--this is the book for you."--Anne Helen Petersen, author of Can't Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation

"The years between adolescence and middle age are arguably the most formative in one's life, and yet so many young people spend them dissatisfied, confused, and unmoored. Quarterlife makes sense of this period and offers a roadmap for finding both meaning and stability on the path toward maturity. If you're a young adult looking for a way through, or if you're seeking to understand the struggles of young adults, you must read this timely and illuminating book."--Jill Filipovic, author of OK Boomer, Let's Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind

"Absent structured rites of passage to emerge from childhood into adulthood, how is a young person supposed to grow up today? Quarterlife is a valuable guide to the perplexed in those seas. Filled with illustrative examples, Byock provides tips, clues, and guidance for those who otherwise feel alone."--James Hollis, Ph.D., Jungian analyst and author of Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life
