Format: Paperback
When I was in high school, I was convinced that my life was Utterly and Complete Over if I hadn't finished college and moved out by twenty one and found the Ultimate Love of my Life by twenty-four, and become powerful and successful by twenty-eight

I picked this up recently, on the eve of my twenty-fifth birthday. I'm a college senior (life required me to take a little longer getting through college) looking at three more long years of schooling (and a small bankworth of debt) before I could embark on my chosen career in the law. I'd had one relationship that ended terriably, and while my current relationship is going much better, after ten months my mother had already begun to put a lot of pressure on me about it (which was counterproductive). Turning twenty five was giving me panic attacks and I thought there was something seriously wrong with me.

Nothing, as it turns out, remotely so serious and this book has been very helpful in working through what I want, what I think, what to do with all the expectations the world and I have put on myself. It has a lot of journaling exercises, which I like, although the early chapters of the book are so crammed through with them that, since I like to read and work in the order presented, had me reading a page and a half, then spending half an hour doing a journal exercise, then reading a page and a half, then doing ANOTHER journal sort of broke up my thought process while I was reading, and I'd have given the book a full five stars if it had the exercises laid out more sensibly, say, giving you a few to work on between chapters instead of hitting you with one so frequently in the early going.

Format: Paperback
It's a little difficult to think you'd need a guide for your twenties when these are the years you're suppose to be lost and exploring your way through life. But as a twenty something woman today, in these times, the pressure to have it all--now, can be overwhelming, especially since there are more options for woman today than ever before. It was easier before during periods of domesticity, WWII, the 50's ...society decided the roles of women, but today it's a "do-whatever-you-want" society. Unfortunately, too many choices have left some of us screaming, "I don't know what I want!"

I decided to pick this book up, not because I thought I needed some direction, but because I was curious. I needed to know I wasn't being dramatic or whiny; I needed to know other woman were feeling this confused and frustrated- even after having it all. I read the first chapter and I couldn't put it was my story, along with many, many other women!

With this book I surprisingly found myself asking questions I'd never asked myself before; I rediscovered a new me; I realized I needed to relax and allow myself to just be okay with not making major life decisions-today. I gained some peace with my twenties.

I highly recommend this book for all woman to buy, keep by their bedside and give themselves a few minutes to read everyday...I guarantee a better night's sleep!

Format: Paperback
As a woman in my 20's, every line of this book was relevant and meaningful for me. (and it made me feel much better knowing that I was not the only person having these feelings!) In a very genuine fashion, Hassler discusses the frustrations, difficulties, and realities that suddenly surface during our 20's. Through exercises and insightful advice, Hassler really forces you to look at situations from a different perspective and to focus on the 3 essential questions: Who am I? What do I want? How do I get it?. After going through those three questions ("the Twenties triangle"), she explores different areas to build a secure foundation (independence, self security, financial security, love, and work) This book constantly leaves you with a true desire to reflect on your past, present, and future... and make appropriate actions to improve. It's difficult to put down because I really felt each paragraph was so incredibly helpful. As a result, I went through it pretty fast the first time - now I'm going to go through it a second time and really go through the exericeses and give myself more time for reflection/action. Absolutely a brilliant book. Perfect gift for you or close friends in the 20's!

Format: Paperback
20 Something 20 Everything is an amazing book. I read it at a time in my life where I was struggling to find out who I was and what I wanted out of life. Christine is so honest and genuine in her writing that it truly helps the reader connect to the material. She describes in detail her own struggle during her twenties and the important lessons that she learned from it are interlaced through each section of the book. She discusses the many aspects of a 20 something's life that are important such as identity, independence, romance, parental relationships, financial issues, and jobs. In addition, there are individual exercises that ask insightful questions of the reader. In answering these questions I explored different parts of myself and gained clarity regarding certain aspects of my life. Most importantly, this book showed me that I can learn from my "Ah-Ha moments", meaning when I have failed that there is a lesson to be learned from it and that is often when people grow the most. She teaches you to pick yourself back up and use the process to learn more about yourself and the path that is right for you. She also addresses the fact that many 20 somethings are consumed with constantly making timelines and rigidly sticking to them. After reading this book I understood that sometimes it is best to let life flow and not to reject opportunities that come my way because they may lead me to a better path and help me to learn more about myself in the process as opposed to sticking to a strict timeline in my head. Christine teaches that balance is key and that we must take care of ourselves before life can take care of us. Another key lesson I learned is that so many of us are consumed with "if/then thinking.Read more ›
