101 Secrets for Your Twenties by Paul Angone

Turning twenty is an exciting time. You are finally not a mere teenager. You are a twentysomething with more responsibility and expectations. Unfortunately, there is one problem: you still feel like a teenager. In fact you still feel like a child. Everyone expects you to have your life all planned out and ready to go. For years, your life was defined by school and its schedule, but all of the sudden there are no more teachers telling you where to go, when to go, and what to do. The world is your oyster and you realize you do not like seafood.

Paul Angone has compiled a rather extensive list of axioms written for twentysomethings. Some of them are silly and some are serious but they are all relatively useful. I am sure a twenty year old would look at this book and toss it aside. When you are twenty, it seems like everyone wants to give you advice and it is confusing when you receive conflicting guidance.

I doubt a twentysomething will find the entire book useful, but there is definitely a handful of axioms they can use at any given time.

This is a good book to have and browse through during rough times. I kind of wish the “secrets” were organized by subject. It would make in easier to go and find the advice you need when you need it.
