great book!

If you are a 20-something walking day to day in a haze of confusion and cannot figure out what you want to do with your life and/or career, this book along with The Quarterlife Crisis are what I recommend! These books really help put my priorities into perspective, and helped me figure out what I want to do, and how to get there! I am now gung-ho into my career industry of choice, and getting by day to day at my current dead-end job is more manageable. I carry this book with me in my portfolio, to give me help with networking and interviews.

Very well written Companion

This book is well written, and YES, sure it does contain alot of very common sense, but sometimes its the kind of of common sense you don't really know until someone tells you and then you go "Oh yes". I have my copy highlighted and tabbed and I use it for reference. The writers are right in the fact that things are very different, our parents don't understand why things aren't happening for us as fast they happened for them. I recommend this book for anyone. This new phenomenon known as the quarter life crisis doesn't really have any history to use as a guide. This book is very help, it is an easy read, and it isn't too preachy at all. Theres advice on Money, Jobs, Life, Play, Psyche, Health, Work and everything in between.

Stellar, concrete advice - and lots of fun!

Every college graduate can use a roadmap to life in the real world, but up until now, we've had to rely on vague advice for our parents and older friends. This exceptional book, which addresses everything from figuring out insurance, building lasting friendships post-school, and staying healthy despite the craziness, is one that every twenty-something should read twice. Chock full of expert, insider tips and fun, sometimes quirky exercises, The Quarterlifer's Companion uses a unique approach that's hands on, without a drop of preachiness.

This book will not disappoint you.

When I spotted this book, I didn't think it could really help me with my life...there are SO many self-help type books out there...how do you know which one is going to work for you? I am so glad I decided to order this book. I don't know how the authors managed to cram that much information into less than 300 pages, but they did--in a wonderful way that didn't seem condescending. This book will help you, not make you feel like a loser because you don't know how or where to invest your money. There are great tips on how to meet new people, how to get involved, etc. Even recipes for healthy snacks and meals! The book is broken down into sections (life, work, play, etc), then the authors cover each section with their creative writing, professional opinions, and anecdotes from members of their website. I found that was a really cool idea--it wasn't like other books, where a bunch of experts spew out knowledge, or the authors pretending to sound like they knew what they were talking about...but real life people were included. These authors are also "real life" because they've gone through it to...and they seemed to seek out good professional advice for the book. Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.

User-friendly would be an understatement

This book is put together very well, and is the perfect response to the most commonly heard complaint about the first Quarterlife Crisis book...that being that the problems of the current crop of young adults were laid out well, but no solutions were offered. Think of the first book as an introduction - identifying the phenomenon - and this volume as a Part II that tells in a very user-friendly way how to approach the challenges that loom ahead. Wilner and Stocker clearly spent a good deal of time researching and obtaining firsthand experiences and information from a cross section of the book's intended audience, and this research shows in the practical advice found within the pages of this workbook/resource.
