Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lavinthal and Rozler (The Hookup Handbook), build on the meaning of the quarterlife crisis first defined in the 2001 eponymous book with a mildly irreverent exploration of a person's late 20s and early 30s, a transition time marked by a growing restlessness and "Redo-Berty" (Puberty Part Deux), where a wealth of choices, options, and expectations can overwhelm. Lavinthal and Rozler seek to offer these lost, aging souls comfort, fun, and "frank girl talk," with humorous yet serious advice on dating, love, career, and growing up, as the authors did, with a pop culture perspective (they take their title from a mid-90s TV show that, despite its one-season run, has attained cult status). With chapters like "Renter, Owner, or Squatter: A Place to Call Home" and "Hooking Up, Shacking Up, and Marrying Up: The State of Your Love Life," they bring a number of life lessons to quarterlifers in the hopes of easing the rocky transition from watching The Real World to living in it.

From the Back Cover

Now that you're approaching 30—or just getting over the trauma of the big 3-0—reality has set in. You're about to be an adult, minus the air quotes. But you don't have to do it alone.

Andrea Lavinthal and Jessica Rozler will help you enter true adulthood looking and feeling good in the only way they know how: with tons of wit and wisdom. Featuring interviews with nearly thirty experts—including doctors, career counselors, and financial planners—this handy, helpful book guides women through their second bout of growing pains and offers advice on:

  • how to manage a difficult boss.
  • how to deal with your ticking biological clock (if such a thing even exists).
  • how to throw the perfect party in your tiny new apartment without breaking the bank.
  • how to enjoy a Friday night as a seventh wheel with your married friends and their husbands.

Your So-Called Life is the bible for all “post-quarter-life crisis” women who need guidance transitioning into the real world with smarts and savvy.

Format: Paperback
Ugh. This book...I'm not a fan. The only reason I forced myself through it was because I paid for it. I'm 32 and I found the book to be both exhausting and grating. The authors constantly wink at their audience via an absurd amount of parenthetical notes and "me too" references to Beverly Hills 90210, Zach Morris and Care Bears, among countless others. The contrived humor of the authors ventures into sheer idiocy when they refer to Plato as the "O.G. deep thinker" (p23) and Martha Stewart as "M-Dawg" (p60). There are a few inspired kernels of knowledge offered by doctors and professionals if you can get past the first 100 pages, but man, good luck with that.

Such a terrific read for ANYONE feeling the presence of the 30 something gorillas in the room...the ones no one talks about or tells you they see too!

These ladies find a way to make sense of, shed light on and make you smile about life's everyday dramas in such an endearing way. Be prepared to smile a lot, tear up a bit and generally feel better about the million plus thoughts that run through your mind daily.

This clever guide to life in your thirties will have you laughing out loud. I too am in my early thirties so the points about relationships, friendships, careers, and body issues really hit home. And the cute references from tween/teenage years left me with a twinge of nostagia (think home perms!)

It's a quick read that will leave you feeling good about being in your thirties and helps you realize that you are not alone in dealing with all of the issues you "should" have figured out by now!

If you are in your 30s you will love this book! It's a fun, fast read, and having read it will make you smile as you head out to deal with some of the very same situations they talk about in this book. Well worth the read!

This book is smart, funny and has it totally together. Everything you hoped you would be at 30. But-if you (like me) don't quite have it together yet, you are not alone. Lavinthal and Rozler help you navigate through the "thrisis" years with humor and heart. A must-read and great gift for that 30th birthday party you've got on the calendar in between the weddings, baby showers, blind dates and work appointments...
