This book is absolutely excellent it’s fantastic. I wish I would’ve had this book when I was in college and in graduate school. Having graduated college in 2012 and graduating from grad school last year(2015) everything is so fresh that I can just relate to most of the things in this book.
I really like the chapter one where Paul Angone talks about “who wants cake” in this little section he talks about graduation party and all the handshakes and the smiles and people asking you what you want to do in the future. And me being 27 1/2 …I still don’t know what I want to do. And I know 30 is approaching really fast and whatever it is want to do, I have a limited amount of time before I start thinking about marriage and kids and the dog and all these other things. I can relate to when he talks about the event that was supposed to rocket launch into the rest of your life. That event he’s talking about his college graduation and having gone through graduation two of them mind you in the last 4 years, college and grad school I remember that day like it was yesterday. Feeling on top of the world one minute while your going across the stage to get your diploma and a few months later saying what happened to that feeling? like where am I in my life? No job in sight ,single and just trying to figure everything out. I love Paul’s take on faith in this book. You don’t really get that into many books nowadays and being a Christian woman myself I really appreciated that.
I love this book. I love all the humorous relatable things that Paul talks about on life after he had graduated and they were really nothing that he’d expected. We can all relate to eating top Ramen. This book is so reassuring, meaning that you are not alone in this transition post college & that hundreds of other 20 somethings just like me are still trying to figure it out. I know the 20s can be some pretty awesome years ( for me though it was less partying more studying and reading , OK and maybe some fun but nothing ridiculously crazy)but to be honest I cannot wait until I’m in the next stage in my life.
This is the perfect gift for that 20 something in your life who is may be a senior in college or graduating or has already graduated they would love this book . I highly recommend it.
