The Vanishing American Adult
By Ben Sasse

"Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse's latest book, The Vanishing American Adult, has a provocative thesis: Instead of creating a culture of self-reliance, too many parents are treating their 20-somethings like 10-year-olds (not cute). Sasse has strong ideas on how to course-correct, like encouraging kids to work hard for their wins and learn from their failures—scar tissue is not a bad thing. If you've got a grown Peter Pan still living at home, you might want to share the book before you drive him to his next job interview!"
