A few months ago, I met Paul Angone at a conference. He told me about his site, AllGroanUp, which helps twenty-somethings navigate the inherent challenges of this decade with humor and practicality. He also mentioned that he was working toward the launch of his first book, 101 Secrets For Your Twenties.
An instant fan of All Groan Up and Paul, I responded enthusiastically when he sent me a copy and asked me to review the book for all of you.
101 Secrets tackles issues from faith to dating to career and everything in between with Paul’s characteristic humor to lighten the heavy but important truths.
Here are a few of my favorites:
#20 All job listings on Craigslist lead you to a warehouse in downtown LA “wearing something nice with shoes you can walk in.”
#21 “The key to success in your 20s is comparing yourself to everyone, every day. Then let that anxiety and fear propel you to work harder, faster, and with more motivation.” -Guy Who Had a Nervous Breakdown at 33
#36 Your 20s might be less about finding out what you want to do, and more about finding what you DO NOT want to do.
If you’re in your 20s and struggling, this book will give you invaluable insight, hope and the incredibly important validation of knowing you’re not alone.
If you feel your life has somewhat stabilized or you’re nearing the end of this defining decade, you’ll smile reading about some of your past in someone else’s words. And you’ll probably want to pass on your copy to siblings and friends in their 20s.
Paul’s publisher has generously offered to give one of my readers a copy of 101 Secrets For Your Twenties.
