Publisher's Description

Praise for Big Questions,Worthy Dreams

"The things at stake in this tenth anniversary edition are even more profound and urgent than they were the first time around. This is not a little story about young people. It is a big story about humanity and the persistent quest for meaning and purpose. . . . the key is mentorship, and the payoff should be big—for all of us."
—RICHARD A. SETTERSTEN JR., coauthor, Not Quite Adults: Why 20-Somethings Are Choosing a Slower Path to Adulthood, and Why It's Good for Everyone

"Scholarly, wise, elegant, and deeply insightful, this book is . . . for all who work with people in the awe and angst-filled years between 18 and 32. . . . Upcoming generations have fateful choices to make that we need them to take up faithfully and fully awake. Parks, a master teacher, lights the way—theirs and ours."
—DIANA CHAPMAN WALSH, president emerita, Wellesley College; board chair, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

"No one who cares deeply about people in their twenties should be without this book. In Sharon Daloz Parks's lyrical company we learn so much more about their biggest possibilities—and our own."
—ROBERT KEGAN, author, In Over Our Heads; professor, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Parks's clear voice … is simultaneously that of a scholar, clinician, ethicist, and priest—that of a rare and capable generalist who can nurture both teachers and students … [and] reveal the architecture of the process by which we merge the questions of ultimate reality with the immediate needs and duties of our generation."
—JANET COOPER NELSON, chaplain of the university, Brown University

" . . . [A] valuable resource for parents, professors, administrators, employers, and all others who care about emerging adults and want to see them thrive."
—JEFFREY JENSEN ARNETT, Clark University; author, Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties
