Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lavinthal and Rozler (The Hookup Handbook), build on the meaning of the quarterlife crisis first defined in the 2001 eponymous book with a mildly irreverent exploration of a person's late 20s and early 30s, a transition time marked by a growing restlessness and "Redo-Berty" (Puberty Part Deux), where a wealth of choices, options, and expectations can overwhelm. Lavinthal and Rozler seek to offer these lost, aging souls comfort, fun, and "frank girl talk," with humorous yet serious advice on dating, love, career, and growing up, as the authors did, with a pop culture perspective (they take their title from a mid-90s TV show that, despite its one-season run, has attained cult status). With chapters like "Renter, Owner, or Squatter: A Place to Call Home" and "Hooking Up, Shacking Up, and Marrying Up: The State of Your Love Life," they bring a number of life lessons to quarterlifers in the hopes of easing the rocky transition from watching The Real World to living in it.
