This does not change anything from the word for word copy on Glamour's website and several other blogs. I purchased it thinking the other sites were a preview, NOPE, the entire thing. So it's free everywhere else and if you were thinking it was a more thourough version than what was presented previously by glamour, you will be disappointed.

Ok, some of these short essays are interesting, others I found a bit depressing, but Taylor Swift's was just... hilarious.

I don't think it was meant to be, but I laughed so hard I cried. And then called the friend who gave me this book for my 30th, and laughed with her about it.
The truth is, she's going to look back on it when she IS actually 30 and cringe. (And not just because of the gratuitous Alanis Morissette quoting-- 1995 called, they want their angst back).

I haven't read the whole book, but if you're a fan of dramatic young women pretending they know enough to give advice to *anyone*... worth buying it for T-Swift's contribution alone.

I bought this book yesterday and couldnt put it down! It's such an amazing read from a broad spectrum of women and great advice whether you are 30 or not! I have always been a fan of the magazine Glamour and the list this book is based off of, and to have this collection of stories and women's inputs on what to them has been important lessons in life is truly inspiring! And to the first reviewer who gave the book one star based off of the sample ...you should of actually sat down and read the book cover to cover before you gave it such an unfair low rating ...and maybe you could of picked up some lessons from the book itself if you had actually taken the time to read it.

Got this book for my daughter. I thumbed through it first. I found it a bit simple for my taste and there is not a lot of information, but it was light and entertaining and food for thought. It was perfect for her. She gets bored quickly with books (can this really be my daughter?), and this was just enough to hold her attention

Bought this book a few weeks before I turned 30. A lot of it was great - good things to hear before you approach 30 and good reminders about what is really important! But - including authors who ARE NOT YET 30 - epic fail. I will not listen to Taylor Swift during my "holy crap I'm turning 30" meltdown.

I'm on the brink of 30, and not by any means having a mid-life crisis, but definitely at the point in my life where I'm evaluating where I've been, what I've accomplished, and what I want to do next. This book helps put in to perspective that it's NOT downhill after 30, your life is not over! In fact, it's more about how much you have ahead of you; now that you "formally" are venturing into adulthood from the crazy college-lived, career-starting, date-filled 20's, what you have to look forward to in your 30's! It's an inspirational read, as well as a tool to help you reflect and prioritize what you haven't quite accomplished. Easy read, and I LOVED every chapter!!

Thirty Things Every Woman should have and should know By the Time she's 30 by Pamela Redmond Satran
165 pages
5/5 stars

I'm turning 30 in about three months (my birthday is August 16). I've been freaked out about the prospect forever. When I was in college, it didn't faze me. Turning 21 didn't bother me, even though I was older than most of my friends by a few years. Turning 25 was okay. Turning 26 was a little harder because that's when my quarter life crisis kicked into high gear and I started questioning everything I was doing, from little to big.

I stumbled on Glamour's 30 things list last week, at the library, in a back issue of the magazine. I immediately requested the book from the library, although I briefly considered just buying it from Amazon, thinking I might want to highlight passages and have a copy to reference. I'm glad I didn't though. I'm glad I read the book, there was some good insight, but I am not a re-reader of books and I am trying to eliminate clutter from my life and that includes books.

This book took me two days to read (and I never read books that fast - I'm a slow reader). It's written in essay form - a famous woman was given an item on the list and they wrote an essay about the impact that item had or will have on their life. Some of the things on the list to have include a decent piece of furniture that isn't a hand-me-down, something to wear in case your dream employer wants to see you in an hour, an unpadded resume, something expensive you bought just because you deserve it. Some things to know include how you feel about having kids, how to live alone, when to try harder and when to walk away.

I am not going to rehash the list here and turn it into a list of things I don't have/want/need.

Loved the layout of the book. Enjoyed reading so many different females and learning from each one. This book came at a perfect time in my life as I am approaching 30, and am scared of what I haven't accomplished.
