As a member of the book's target audience, a woman in her mid-twenties, I can truly say that they make a lot of great points, especially their assurance that becoming your best self will benefit you now and later."--Nicole Nalls, columnist at VenusZine

I'm no longer waiting around wondering if each guy is "Mr. Right."

I bought this for my 15 year old daughter and promised her a $250 shopping card if she'd read it over the summer and give me a good review on it. I told her I would be asking her questions and she had to give me both a written and oral review to get the cash.

I was married at 25, she was born by 27. Despite avoiding being married earlier...now in my early 40's...I wish I had waited until 30, or even 35. I certainly knew I was different at 25 than 18. I'd been in the US Army, lived abroad, traveled the US some, and got thru college. Well, ok, I finished last semister married to her mother.

My wife and I talk about it a lot - we are better prepared now than we were then. We don't want to start over now, but both wish we had waited, done more either alone or together. Our daughter was born 2 years into our marriage and our life pretty much stopped there. Well, at least the grand trips, the big life-risks, the dreams took second place to the necessary realities of being young and having a small family.

We love our kids, but as each generation wants their kids to have it better - we are SO THANKFUL that this book came to be. It communicates so well that you have basically one time to be young and to really make sure you consider your whole life before rushing down the aisle.

Our daughter ended up asking us tons of questions - some weren't easy to answer - and we discussed some parts of this book for months. It's still a topic of conversation a times. The gift card is a minor investment, the book's message she absorbed is priceless. What she does in her life is up to her...but at least she has been presented some reasons for enjoying her young and single days.

This book is in competition with my laptop for "Most Important Possessions." I'm no longer waiting around wondering if each guy is "Mr. Right." I'm living- and Loving- my own life. This has been a revolutionary concept change. I love the exercises and questionnaires, and it addresses everything from wardrobe to finances to sex!! I especially liked the chapter about tapping into your adventurous side. This book helped me realize my own beliefs and feelings about things and realize that I'm not just waiting to get somewhere-I am Here...and I can grab the bull by the horns. Now when "Mr. Right" does come he'll accent and enhance my life- he won't BE my life. The authors have a witty yet insightful approach to some very real issues. I couldn't put the book down. I bought one for my sister and my roommate ('cause I'm not sharing mine!!) -Jenn

Let's imagine that all of us, including our mothers, aunties, cousins, sisters and friends, had read this book when WE were younger! What would our lives look like?
Now think about the power we have to share such innovative and compelling wisdom with our daughters, nieces, and friends. Get this book into
the hands of every young woman you know! It is a step by step guide to living your best life right here, right now. I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
Even though the book gives some good advice about life in your 20's it does not present a good argument against marrying young. The book states the things a woman should accomplish before marriage (all of which are well thought out and spot on) but at the same time these necesary goals are barely age-related. I've known plenty of smart 20-somethings who have already completed the "10 Keys" to life. In that sense couldn't they get married at 23 and still be happy? The book says otherwise,claiming that anyone under 25 doesn't have the mental capacity to pick a good partner. Also, it promotes 30 as the ultimate age of enlightenment while completely forgetting that women over 30 have marital problems too.
I defiately agree that a person (regardless of age or gender) should get their act together before making the ultimate contract with another person, but to say they aren't ready just because they arent 30 is simply ludicrous.
Three stars because the 10 Keys offer some very good advice, but not five because the whole thing seemed too narrow minded. Given the choice I'd probably read it again

I am a happy, purpose-filled, focused 20something and this book is helping me to create and articulate goals for my 20s in very modern, comprehensive, language. I am definitely able to relate to the authors--the book is well-written and the ideas are easy to understand. I recommended the book to my best friend before I even purchased it; we've now added it to our summer reading list and are passing it around to all of our 20something friends! If you are a young woman in your 20s, READ THIS BOOK.

Must haves for young women in the know... the right lip gloss, a great pair of shoes and THIS BOOK! No more waiting for Mr. Right. This book provides valuable insight and important tools to help you live your best life, here and now, so Mr. Right can find you! Practical information you never thought of, delivered with wit and humor, make this book an entertaining read -- I particularly liked "My Vows to Myself". I definitely recommend this book and purchased copies for my nieces, cousin and best friend's daughter, thus far. Enjoy!
