This is my life!

I was at a time in my life where I just felt I needed some guidance/reasurance. This book made me feel close to normal. Because I'm out of college and knew my career I skipped the first few chapters. But after that I couldn't put it down. She covers everything from the freshman 15 to investing money for the future. She brought up things that I knew where happening but I didn't know why. Chapter 7 (the one about sex) was one of those chapters I made my boyfriend read. He learned alot from this book too. I kept my girlfriends updated on what I was reading about. They were amazed also. This book gave me a stronger outlook on my 20-something years. I feel that I am better able to handle what lies ahead. I was going to let my friends borrow this book, but it is too good of a resource to let go. I NEED THIS BOOK! So I'm buying the book for my boyfriend's sister instead of lending it to her. Thank you Julia for writing this book. I'll buy your 30-something book!

A Humorous Perspective on this Crazy Decade in Women's Lives

As a recent female college graduate in my early 20s, I find myself on the edge of the most confusing decade of my life to date - even more so than my teenage years. I'm currently trying to find a decent career, stay in touch with both high-school and college friends, forge a mature relationship with my parents, on whom I'm still financially dependent (unfortunately), and decide upon a relationship with two different men... the list goes on of the decisions that 20-somethings have to make in their lives.During this confusion, I picked up a copy of Julia Bourland's book on helping 20-something females find some meaning and reason during these years. This book has been my Bible of sorts over these last few weeks of reading. Bourland places a method behind the madness of this decade through her humorous writing style, candid interviews with other 20-somethings, and her honest discussion of her own experiences. I believe any female in her 20s can relate to issues involving dating, friends, parents, careers, body-image, and money. Bourland offers a refreshing perspective that has helped me realize that I'm not alone during this crazy time, and that things WILL be okay (eventually)! Thanks, Julia, for your awesome book! I now know what to buy my other 20-something friends as presents!

Post-grad Freakout

My friends and I have been struggling with the fact that we are not going back to college this year, that there are no good men, and that we now fight to stay up past 11pm. This book is a great reassurance that we are not alone in this post-grad freakout. Very helpful advice. I'm buying a copy for all of my friends.

I thought I would hate this book..but I loved it

Julia Bourland is the insightful and wise older sister that I wish I would have had. This is filled with great non-patronizing advice about careers and relationships. It's modern advice from a woman who understands what you are going through. As a woman nearing 21, I'm recommending it to all of my peers.

Read this book! Even if you are no longer in your 20's

Even if your 20's were long ago, you will be heartened and impressed by what our young women are facing and handling today. The initial work of the women's movement brought us a chance to better participate in our culture. Young women today are balancing freedom my generation never had to deal with, with responsibility. This is a heartening and wonderfully encouraging book, full of good advice for ALL ages and BOTH sexes, with humor and personal vignettes on almost every page that make the hard lessons bearable.
