    This book simply reaffirmed what had been going through my mind for a while now Or I guess I should say it helped me become okay with the fact that where I m directing my life is correct It was great to read on the tail end of my quarter life crisis but I think it might have beenbeneficial to read right out of college Either way, it s worth picking up.

    This book would be great for people going into college just as much as coming out of college You can read this to feel better about yourself and what path you are thinking to go down It may help quiet the negative outside voices Parents, relatives, friends, strangers Help you stick to your passion, and beliefs If you are looking for getting a job advice this is not the book.

    Doesn t exactly reinvent the wheel on the whole self help circuit but does tailor it to fit the just out of college demographic It was nice to know that a lot of the frustration on being a early 20something, without a dream career, and living at home is normal and understandable I would recommend it to others just out of school trying to figure out what comes next.

    I think this would be an awesome book for anyone who has just graduated from college or University, or in their early twenties.
