The author of 20-Something, 20-Everything (2005) offers a handy guide for navigating the often rough waters of the twentysomething years. Hassler draws on her own experience, but she has also gathered myriad stories and quotes from a variety of twentysomethings around the world, regarding everything from grappling with their expectations after college to job hunting and navigating friendships and relationships. Hassler addresses one of the biggest problems she thinks twentysomethings face: “Expectation Hangovers,” in which reality doesn’t measure up to what people in their twenties had come to expect from their lives, leading to depression and lack of direction. She then delves into the “twenties triangle,” addressing the three questions that dominate the decade: Who am I? What do I want? How do I get what I want? The chapters that follow address the biggest issues for people in their twenties: love, friendships, family, and career. Packed with stories and wisdom from their peers, this guide will definitely appeal to the many twentysomethings trying to find their way. --Kristine Huntley
