I am in the process of finishing this book and so far I have like it very much. I wish I could have found this book sooner when I turned 20, or when I was finishing high school so I knew what to expect in my twenties and not put so much pressure in myself. Life as a young woman is stressful because where are faced with so many choices and we often feel this emptiness in our lives and we wonder why we feel this way. I though I was the only woman who felt dissatisfied with her life in my twenties. I turned 24 this summer and I have been feeling very unhappy with my career, my love life, my friendships etc, and I have always been comparing myself to other women which has caused me a lot of anxiety and unhappiness. After reading this book I realized that is normal to feel this way in my twenties. We think we need to define our lives immediately before we hit our 30's or else would be failures as women, we are so wrong. I am so happy I found this book. I would recommend it to my sister who will graduate high school this year. It's a comforting book full of wise advice and real life experiences.

My belief is Christine does not just give to the reader but simultaneously provides the space for individuals to truly process life in their 20s. Moreover, she allows those beyond their twenties the space to reflect, question and confront what was, in the hope of providing insight for individuals currently in their 20s that can be influenced. The book is not just an educational tool for outlining aspects of the process of living in your 20s. It is a literary mastery that allows any reader regardless of gender the opportunity to explore, experience, personalize, and actualize their own lives while striving to live optimally. Furthermore, the strongest component aside from the aforementioned is it allowed me the chance to think about affects that I never provided the space or time for in an experiential manner. I feel that Christine has a succinct and effective writing style. She has this inimitable ability to convey a direct message that explicates understanding of living in the uncertain 20¿s during the 21st century. Lastly, the abundance of exercises throughout allows for preparing and normalzing the individual experience in a candid way. Thank you, Christine!

I just finished reading this book about a month ago and I've already loaned out my copy and actually purchased a copy for a friend so she could read it. It really helps with some self-discovery (not that you'll finish reading the book and realize exactly who you are and what you should be doing with your life, but it certainly aides in the process!) Be aware that it asks for a lot of journalling, but I highly encourage you to to journal (actually WRITE down) your answers as often as possible. I found that when I began writing down my thoughts/answers instead of merely thinking about them that I really dove deeper into my inner self and I actually found myself writing down things that I didn't even realize I had opinions on. I would not only recommend this book to those who find themselves in a "quarter-life crisis", as Hassler puts it, but I also suggest this book to ANY young woman, whether you are completely satisfied with your life or not. Hope my thoughts on this book helped your decision to purchase, happy reading! (P.S. This book would make an excellent graduation present!)

A great book for women in their twenties who are struggling to find themselves. Christine brings forth the idea that 20's are a time of experimenting, exploring and discovering but this can lead to feelings of confusion, wondering, anxiousness, and displacement. She addresses the idea as young womans quarter life crisis. Young woman are pressured to feel as if they have all the right plans and the choices set up when in fact they are still struggling to find out who they are, what they want out of life and which direction they should take. I highly recommend it. I bought 3 copies, one for my cousin, another for my best friend and one for me. Great motivational book for 20 something women.
