As a 20-something myself, I was intrigued by the subtitle of researcher Jeffrey Froh’s new book, Thrive, which reads “10 Commandments for 20-Somethings to Live the Best-Life-Possible.”

Notoriously a time of great change, your 20s is the perfect time to start investing in yourself and your future while entering young adulthood. However, it’s also a time of confusion about your personal priorities and values, and it can be stressful to navigate new responsibilities, especially in the context of increased mental health concerns in recent years. It can be hard to know where to turn to for guidance, which is where Thrive excels: by imparting advice in a clearly structured and meaningful way. 

Froh is currently a professor of psychology at Hofstra University, as well as the founder—and now research director—of the Positive Psychology Institute for Emerging Adults. He also created a very popular positive psychology course at Hofstra that he’s been teaching since 2010.

Clearly, Froh’s work with positive psychology has informed the content of his book, which contains a healthy dose of rational optimism about people’s ability to transcend suffering and live their best life possible. As he writes in Thrive, “If you learn anything from me or this book, please learn this: You can thrive.”
