I purchased this book when I was in college, and now I understand why it was in the bargain bin--it is almost 200 pages of millennials 20 years and older airing their griefs against the world. This massive 'woe is me' attitude is laughable, especially since this book is story after story after story of how life early on did not prepare someone to succeed and be happy as an adult in the Real World. I am 25, so I can agree that my upbringing and my education up to my bachelors did not prepare me to be a successfully functioning adult, BUT I LEARNED. I think this turns more into a book highlighting the survival of the fittest--those who can adapt and learn to overcome obstacles and play the game of Life do well, and those who can't don't progress.
This book had great potential. Just as there is a midlife crisis, I agree that there is a quarterlife crisis. However, for this book to be taken seriously it needs more than anecdotes and a TWO PAGE CONCLUSION. Yes, you read that right. After 190 something pages of 'pity me' personal testaments to the quarterlife crisis cause, there are 2 pages devoted to a conclusion to the authors' "research." Nothing explaining what could be done to bring life the quarterlife crises, or maybe an idea as to how to cope with this period in one's life...Nada. No true research, no studies, no suggestions or resolutions.
This is literally a book of complaints regarding how life as an under prepared adult (practically everyone) is hard and boo-hoo.
Please do not read. Your time is worth more and could be better spent doing something else or reading something entertaining/enlightening.
