Danny Rubin, author of Wait, How Do I Write This Email?: Game-Changing Templates for Networking and the Job Search
As one who didn’t start “getting it” until my 30s (better late than never, right?), I found myself wondering how much faster I’d have come to know (and genuinely dig) myself had a copy of this book showed up on my doorstep as I grappled with the life, relationship, and career decisions that rough most of us up throughout our 20s.
Jenny Foss, career strategist and founder of JobJenny.com
Paul has a way of sharing his own story to make you laugh and let you know he’s been there, but also encouraging you to look inside yourself to answer the tough questions to move your life forward. I can’t think of a twentysomething who wouldn’t benefit from having this smart book on their bookshelf.
Molly Beck, author of Reach Out and founder of MessyBun.com
If you only read one book in your twenties, and I hope you read more, then make it this one. It’s an essential list of questions we all need to be asking ourselves at every stage of life, especially young adulthood. Seriously. It’s that good.
Jeff Goins, bestselling author of The Art of Work
From the Back Cover
It’s time to live life like you mean it (even if some days you’d rather hide in your bed and watch Netflix) because the world needs the story you bring.
Winning your twenties starts with asking the right questions. Questions like:
- How do I make a choice when I don’t know what to choose?
- Why do some people have great marriages while others have complete wrecks before they even make it to the highway?
- Am I being stereotyped in my office for being a twentysomething? If so, what do I do about it?
Discover 98 more soul-piercing questions that will help you ditch your fears, grab onto hope, and believe you’re doing something worthwhile again.

I had issues with the book for the following reasons:
- This book has no depth. Virtually the entire book just general surface level and I don't feel that the points were well made or adequately supported.
- I found the author's informal writing style extremely distracting. It felt like he was trying too hard and, personally, I dont want to pay to read a 250 page buzz feed article. I'm 32 so I assume I'm within his target audience but I just felt way too old to be reading this. Perhaps this would have appealed to me at 21? Not sure.
- The author wastes space by over explaining his own life stories. The starting story where he knocked himself out could have been cut by ~80% and still made the same point. It also wasn't entaining enough to support the length. This is true of the other 20+ personal stories littered throughout.
- The author is not RBG. He's a mid 30s dude who has enjoyed some moderate success. He uses his own n=1 personal examples of success more than his level of success can support.
- The author provided almost no research to back up his points when quite a lot exists. Given his limited life experience this would have significantly helped.
- In many instances the author's point was not well made. I found myself having to re-read questions to try to get at his point but in many cases it remained completely unclear. For example - "Q32 Am I being brave enough to be awkward?" There are quite a number of benefits to being authentic but it would seem the author was perhaps trying to allude to the benefits of staying off your phone and being present because of the dangers of overconnectedness? Not overly clear. (Again, quite a lot of research exists to back up the point I think he was trying to make here)
- The constant references to God and religion was obnoxious. This isn't helpful advice if you are not religious and I'm annoyed that this wasnt disclosed going into the book. In addition the author sounds a little judgmeental with statements like "If you've had sex with the person you're dating, I'm not saying it's over and you can't love each other..." Wtf.
Unfortunately I am probably giving this 2 stars instead of 3 because of the high expectations I had going into reading this book and how annoyed I am to have wasted my time and money on it.
You might think that this book is for someone who feels lost in their 20s and is struggling a lot with life.
I found this to not necessarily be the case with this book. I actually have amazingly come out of my 20s pretty happy with how those years turned out. Now, of course we all struggle in our 20s in some way or another, and that's okay. This book is for anyone dealing with these formative years of life.
Paul breaks this book down into four main categories: Adulting to Win, Careerish, Relationshipping, and Signature Sauce
These are just a few of the questions that really challenged me.
#15 What is fear keeping me from doing? Is it worth it?
#16. What would my life look like if I were okay just being me?
#32 Am I being brave enough to be awkward?
#42 Am I dreaming big and being faithful in the small?
#51 Do I create or do I complain more?
I would recommend just reading through all 101 questions to start with like the author suggests, then going back and delving further into the content provided with each question and thinking through your own questions to each answer.
Seriously grab a copy! You won't regret it!
