Emerging Adulthood, The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties, Jeffrey Jensen Arnett

This 20th anniversary, third edition of Emerging Adulthood fully updates and expands Arnett's findings from his groundbreaking original book with a new chapter on cultural and international variations. Merging stories from the lives of emerging adults themselves with decades of research, Arnett covers a wide range of topics, including love and sex, relationships with parents, experiences at college and work, and views of what it means to be an adult
