Overview

Overview

As a pragmatic reaction to the newfound "quarterlife crisis" genre, Katy McColl interviews real men and women "stuck" in their twenties and early thirties and solicits a variety of experts for advice on how to get unstuck. McColl employs a distinctively droll brand of humor and a "self-help without self-pity" approach to inspiring those disenchanted by their initial forays into the heady real world. The themes here are universal -- how to negotiate that with a career, how to study a craft in an un-lucrative field, how to break into glamour industries, and what to do when laid off. Help comes via those who overcame the same problems and blazed their own trails in the most desirable fields, from noted fashionistas like Heatherette to successful musicians like Chris Conley. Organized by case study but filigreed with McColl's comic commentary, the book offers ace advice on achieving that elusive career that's rewarding in every respect.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jane magazine writer/editor McColl offers a self-help book for women and men experiencing the "quarter-life crisis," particularly as it relates to professional aspirations. The first few chapters cover basic, broad issues such as figuring out what to do with one's career path and planning possible transitions. In the next ten, McColl examines approaches to landing specific "dream jobs" like chef, director, novelist, and rock star by including an interview with a person attempting to break into the field and then three or four interviews with those who have made it (e.g., design team Heatherette and novelist Jonathan Ames). This section is the most practical and could be incredibly helpful to anyone attempting to launch a career in these occupations. Issues like "How To Steer Clear of Grad School Escapism" and "How To Replace Burnout with Creative Pursuits" are even addressed. Overall, McColl has produced a motivating survival guide for educated, angst-ridden twentysomethings. Recommended for public and academic libraries where Alexandra Robbins and Abby Milner's Quarterlife Crisis was popular.-Amanda Glasbrenner, New York Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    I think this was shallow.  The author's style is lame, her humor

    I think this was shallow.  The author's style is lame, her humor juvenile and the advice just so-so.
