Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This year about four million people in the United States will turn 30. If you?re one of them, the bad news is that you?re older than 42 percent of Americans. You?ve already lost 10 percent of your muscle mass. And, on average, you?re almost $20,000 in debt. But don?t despair. At 30, Harrison Ford was working as a carpenter, and neither Oprah nor Jane Austen had found fame. Edvard Munch?s famous painting The Scream? Created at 30. And, most heartening, you?re still gettin? it on? 2.24 times a week.

These are but a few of the factoids, demographic stats, quotes, biographical sketches, and sage and not-so-sage observations in this illustrated celebration of this landmark birthday and the decade that follows. Featuring everything you ever wanted to know about your 30s? and a few things you probably didn?t? Book of Ages 30 offers a chance to reflect on past accomplishments, look ahead to future successes, and completely freak out ? all at the same time.

It is an absolute treasure of a book.

It was interesting on the cover but not at all on the inside.

Not every famous person is an instant millionaire by 30, nor do they shrivel up and die of old age. This book is filled with hilarious facts about the famous and not-so-famous 30-something crowd. A great read and a sobering reminder that turning 30 isn't the end of the world. My friends and I really enjoyed it.

This is a fun book, more of a browse and skim than a read. That's a good thing. Lots of facts and figures (factoids?) about turning and being age 30. Perfect gift material. Plus, it's a little square of a book, so it sits unobtrusively wherever you want, and the design is great, too.

This book will change Everything for twentysomethings. It will certainly become a reference point for all cocktail conversation and a source of validation for those looking for such. I would not be surprised if Friendster ultimately requires its participants to define themselves according to the findings enumerated in this book.

Condition of book was perfect but disappointed in content, gave to my son in law, thought it would be light & funny but instead too focused on sexual content...kind if embarrassing coming from his mother in law.

I purchased this book as a gift for one of my good friends who is turning the Big 3-0. I looked through it prior to wrapping, and it has cute facts about being 30, as well as stories on where celebrities were when they were 30 (I guess that celebrity section is supposed to make us feel better about ourselves if we haven't conquered the world by 30? :o)

Cute gift idea.
