    One thought on “Arrested Adulthood: The Changing Nature of Maturity and Identity”

    1. I thought this was going to be awesome. It was not. The problem was that I was expecting a scathing indictment of today's irresponsible, overly-entitled and thoroughly shiftless young people. Instead, it was a series of studies addressed in book format that proved that it's hard to grow up in Generation Me. Yeah, whatever. Where's the cattiness, the shocking totally-true stories of juvenile excess? Maybe I should have just bought a Cosmo. Read? Negative.
