This review is from: The Choice Effect: Love and Commitment in an Age of Too Many Options (Paperback)
i'm a woman in my 20's and this book does NOT explain my life. yes, i have options. however, i actually make choices. the women who wrote this are awful, self-serving, and obviously over-priviledged. they are basically trying to justify a life in which they are devoid of any serious responsibility. they don't even take responsibility for their lack of commitment. chapter 2 blames their parents. oh, how horrible our parents were to suggest we could choose whatever career we wanted. shame on them!
i'd like to have a little more hope for my generation than this book gives. i got it as a free kindle download expecting some fun and original insight (because it IS true that our generation is not known for their ability to commit easily and we DO have WAY more options than any generation before us). i got what i paid for. i couldn't even get halfway through (maybe i'll appear in their 2nd edition because i couldn't commit to finishing their stupid book... too many other choices out there, i guess).
