Why are 20-somethings delaying adulthood? The media have flooded us with negative headlines about this generation, from their sense of entitlement to their immaturity.

Ray shatter these stereotypes, revealing an unexpected truth: A slower path to adulthood is good for all of us. Their surprising findings include a€c Young adults who finish college and delay marriage and child-rearing get a much better start in life. a€c Few 20-somethings who live at home are mooching off their parents.
