Parents and their failure-to-launch kids will love the savvy humor in this engaging overview of why so many adult children delay independence and what can be done about it. It’s a broad-brush, sympathetic take on the economic and cultural forces that promote extended dependency, but Koslow is also brutally honest about the personal hang-ups that keep these arrangements going. Fast-talking Coleen Marlo narrates this seamless collection of popular press writing, academic research, and interview excerpts from a cross section of parents, offspring, and experts. Even when challenged by information-packed sentences, she keeps the action going with her total command of what’s important in a long string of words. Entertaining and thought-provoking, this is an audio destined to become a guide for our times. T.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
