'The gigantic question, ‘Why am I here?’ is written on everyone's heart. Fortunately for twenty-somethings, this book will help answer the question and push them forward on a path of significance that will change their lives and the world around them.” (– Ken Coleman, Author of One Question & Host of The Dave Ramsey Show Video Channel)
Paul Angone offers a new voice to twentysomethings everywhere, writing honestly about one of life’s biggest transitions. At turns, All Groan Up is hilarious, poignant, and insightful. Angone relentlessly explores who God wants us to be rather than what God wants us to do---words everyone needs to hear, whatever their stage of life. (– John Ortberg, author of The Me I Want to Be)
Relatable, funny, and inspiring, All Groan Up is an uplifting story about the redemption of hope when things don’t go as planned. This book is must-read for anyone asking “What’s next?” (– Mike Foster, cofounder and chief chance officer of People of the Second Chance)
This is it---the book every young person should read and every teacher and parent should have on hand. I don’t think you can call yourself a grown-up without first reading this book. (– Jeff Goins, author of The Art of Work)
My twenties were like the new puberty---awkward, sweaty, weird, and life-changing, except no one warned me about them. Paul Angone’s voice in All Groan Up is not just a warning; it is a conversation, a pep talk, wisdom mixed in with funny stories, and encouragement that not only can you survive this groan-up life; you can live it well. (– Amena Brown, spoken word poet and author of Breaking Old Rhythms)
Paul Angone must live inside my house regularly filled with twentysomethings. He gets this generation like few people I know. This book is hilarious, insightful, brilliantly written, and filled with wisdom. Don’t miss the opportunity to give this book to any young adult you know. They will read it because it’s practical, and when they finish the book, they will call it enjoyable, insightful, challenging, and even life changing. (– Jim Burns, PhD, president of HomeWord and author of Confident Parenting and Teenology: The Art of Raising Great Teenagers)
Had me laughing out loud more times than I can count, sometimes literally to the point of tears! Paul Angone writes with a profundity and hilarity that feels like a nascent cross between Donald Miller and Bill Bryson. That’s a high compliment. I think his words will be prophetic to a generation that is drowning in potential. (– Mike Yankoski,?author of Under the Overpass)
Clever, insightful, and devilishly handsome, Paul Angone offers a book reminiscent of sharing a pint with an old friend. All Groan Up captures the confusion of early adulthood in a beautiful blend of candor and humor. This is a must-read for anyone wondering, Okay, what now? (– Jamie Wright, theveryworstmissionary.com)
Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go! may be the top gift at graduation, but this one should take its place. Writing with bravery and honesty, Paul Angone invites us behind his own search for purpose in a complicated world and shows us that the process is far more important than the destination. If you’re at a crossroads in your own journey, you’ll find his guide a welcome companion. (– Wayne Jacobsen, author of He Loves Me: Learning to Live in the Father’s Affection)

What I WILL do is say that Paul Angone, his website AllGroanUp.com, and his Facebook and blog posts have been incredibly encouraging to me during this twentysomething transition in my life.
If you're a college student or twentysomething and you've never read anything from Paul Angone, check out his social media posts, read some of his blogs, and if you want more, get this book. Whatever you start out with, you will be captivated and amazed by his humor, helpfulness, and heart as you read what he has to say about finding yourself, navigating your twenties, and becoming all that you could ever dream of becoming as an adult in this modern, high-tech, crazy world we live in.
The quote: "If we're faithful in our actions, we allow God to be faithful in the results. It's not our job to make this film happen; it's our job to just keep filming" really hit close to home. Especially, since more often than not I feel as if I'm unwanted in the office, mostly due to my own insecurities. However, this book made me realize that no one is perfect and that the person next to you is trying their best to be a functional human being. Oh, and the marriage part was amazing too, growing up in an Asian culture where marriages are expected to be extravagant and costly, knowing that the author chose to tie the knot much like Ethel did, made me realize that we do not need to always overthink some aspects of our lives that are meant to just flow naturally!
Love the book!
Just one things about this book.
- My expectations for this book was different prior to reading this. After I finished this book in one night I was somewhat dissatisfied because I was expecting the magic answers to be given to me straight off the back. But, however, the end resolve show's one that we all go through our trials in our own personal way but in the end that we all do struggle and that there is clarity at the end of our journey.
-Over all great read and take away the abstract meaning the author is trying to convey to his audience and not his own personal experience.
The author of “101 Secrets for your Twenties” opens up about his life and journey in this book, and shares powerful lessons from his failures and successes along the way. From careers and relationships to faith and identity, Angone tackles these topics and more in a fun and engaging way that will keep you flipping through pages to the very end.
If you are a twentysomething, this is a must-read book; a book tailor-made for our generation as we strive to find meaning and purpose in our careers, our relationships and our lives. This book will have you thinking it long after you finish reading it!
