This was a very enjoyable read - very funny and very true comments about what life is like after college. I am 24 years old with a Master's Degree, minimally employed, and single. Needless to say, I am very much in a quarter-life crisis and this hilarious book offered comfort and gives people in their 20's a chance to laugh at their situation and take comfort that they are not alone.

The book picks up a lot from the blog, but is also loaded with new material and new, witty comments about a typical 20-something year old's love life, career life, and social life is like.

Definitely worth picking up, regardless if you are a successful 20-something year old or you are like me and just hoping there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This book is a waste of money, I wouldn't even get it as a humorous gift for a friend or child turning 20.

You can literally finish the book in less than 10 minutes as it was mostly pictures/ drawings, so don't expect much value in reading this book. All I learned was how the authors life was and the very questionable things the author & her friends may have done. Sure we all have misconceptions about our careers, life, where our degrees can take us and have all done some stupid stuff when we are in our 20s, but the author seems to glorify them instead of them being precautions. For example, being misguided about relationships or your relationship status, doesn't give you a reason to have sex with lots of random strangers just because your twenty.

If you really want to learn how to make the most of your 20s or creating a road-map for your life, THIS IS NOT THE BOOK. Luckily I bought the Kindle edition and was able to get a refund.

Honestly, I'm not sure how this qualifies as a book, or as worth the time it takes to read it. Fortunately, that amounts to only a very few minutes. The author seems personable and may be mildly entertaining in real life. But this is truly nothing interesting or particularly insightful.
Let me save you the time and money that you could otherwise spend purchasing and reading this book.
1) A college degree does not guarantee you any sort of success, a job, happiness, etc.
2) Most people in their twenties have no idea what to do with their lives, who to spend their time with, or how to improve their situations.
3) We all have common experiences and feelings about life, work, technology, dating...

Most of this book is page after page of what appear to be quickly scrawled short journal entries or sketches. The insight for one page may be that this particular type of conversation is awkward. Another page points out that the author doesn't own any of the things she sees as essential for being an adult. Another points out that most of your Facebook friends are not actually friends. Another shows a resume of skills she actually has (procrastination, fellatio, etc).

If you REALLY think this sounds like something you are interested in purchasing, I suggest getting a free sample first. This book would function great as a casual blog... It is not content that I am happy to have paid for or that I will ever look at again.

Don't get me wrong; it IS relatable. Being in my twenties, I understand most of what was contained in this volume. But truthfully, I think that I (or any of my friends or colleagues) could have created a similar product in an hour or less... In some ways, I am quite confident that I could create a similar but superior product.

I can't really put my finger on what I didn't like about this book. I really thought I would because a lot of Koenig's story I find that I can relate with, but I found some parts of it depressing and other parts of it overly dramatic. There were things that I could totally get and did find funny, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. However, it is a very quick easy read and I think everyone who is about to leave college or has recently left college should at least flip through the pages, because, like I said, there are parts that hit the nail right on the head.

My "baby" is going to be 20 in a few days.. THAT is a hard pill to swallow!! She loves creating and drawing and used to love doing the "wreck this journal" type of books. She actually put this on her wish list for her birthday so I bought it for her!!

It's very colorful and fun and I know we all have that F*ck, when did I grow up moment!!! This book will give you a light-hearted approach to being a twenty-something!!

I bought this book as a gift for my 23 year old daughter, read it first & fell in love with it right away. Ended up buying 3 more. Gave them to other friends' children in their 20's who I've known since they were in grade school. Now they're all just out of college trying to find jobs. Everyone one of them LOVED this book. My daughter especially. They couldn't put it down on Christmas Day. And as parents you know how good that feels. To get them something they didn't request, expect, that you picked out & they can't believe how much they can relate to, page after page after page.
I think it's comforting no matter what age we are, to know we're not alone with a lot of the feelings, hardships & struggles we're experiencing & that it's ok to laugh at much of it too. To not take it all so seriously. This author has a way of balancing truth with sensitivity & humor without carrying on too long about anyone thing. (much like I know I can do as a parent from time to time).
I think it's a must read for most all 20 something's. Of course not every book is for everyone.
