“How do you transform the tumultuous twenties into the terrific twenties? Zero Limits provides the solutions.

“Many books have been written about children and teenagers.But somehow many of us believe that once a person grows up and becomes an adult, he or she knows how to take care of oneself. This is a unique book that caters to the concerns, lifestyle, future and present of those who have already reached their twenties.
Giving lucid narrations of real life cases covering a wide range, the book steers clear of giving sermons, but does a wonderful job of providing thought-provoking tips through case studies that bring different characters to life, giving deep insights into career, leisure, reading habits, healing emotional hurts, practicing mindfulness; and of course important issues such as marriage, handling the older generation – and various emotional situations that young people tend to ignore till they are actually hit with them.
The book has excellent practical guidelines of dealing with social media, mental and physical health, gender issues, backed up by quotes from some of the renowned experts from all over the world.”

“In these rapidly changing times, old wisdom often has no relevance to young people’s lives, complicated as it is with new expectations, pervasive digital technology, and a bewildering array of choices in courses, careers…and ways of living. This book comes at an opportune moment. Drawing on a mix of in-depth interviews with young people, primary and secondary research across diverse fields from psychology to education to sociology, the author offers examples and advice that is as practical as it is deep. The anecdotes are pithy but telling, the chapters are short but packed with uncommon sense. The book speaks to millennials who are looking for direction or dealing with life’s many dilemmas, as well as to educators, parents, and counselors who wish to understand how to help navigate today’s world.”
