Generation Me The Narcissism Epidemic

Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant book cover

Generation Me: "We live in a time when high self-esteem is encouraged from childhood, when young people have more freedom and independence than ever, but also far more depression, anxiety, cynicism, and loneliness... More than any other generation in history, the children of Baby Boomers are disappointed by what they find when they arrive at adulthood." The Narcissism Epidemic: "The Internet allows people to create phony images of themselves and seek fame and attention. Easy credit has allowed average Americans to pretend they are wealthy and successful.... The inflation of grades and other feedback in schools has let kids believe they are better students than they really are. And the list goes on." The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant: "This a complete guide to the medical, psychological, social, and sexual aspects of getting pregnant, told in a funny, compassionate way, like talking to a good friend who’s been through it all. And in fact, Dr. Jean Twenge has been through it all — the mother of three young children, she started researching fertility when trying to conceive for the first time. Trying to conceive often involves an enormous amount of emotion, from anxiety and disappointment to hope and joy. With comfort, humor, and straightforward advice, The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant is the bedside companion to help you through it."
