I actually picked this book up in an airport in the US on my way home from a holiday which was meant to make me decide if I was doing what I wanted with my life...believe me, reading this book on the 9 hour flight home, I realised I could have saved myself over a grand and just invested in this instead.

It doesn't spout what you should and shouldn't expect from your life, it simply asks you to figure out through exercises just that all for your self. Half way through the book I quit my job, moved into a flat with my new boyfriend and stood up to my parents still treating me like a child. Believe me, this should be mandatory for every woman who turns 20 - and read and kept like the bible. Christine Hassler also has a website which you can look up and continue if you need more help or want to chat to others (mainly from US) but no different from you - just a little confused as to what to do first!

Seriously, if your only gonoing to pick one 'life-coach' book up and you cannot put your finger on what is wrong in the first place, then make this your first stop. You'll thank me later...

This book is really great. I recently read another book about how your twenties are really important and how you should use them to set up your life (It's called The Defining Decade, and is also recommended!). It got me thinking about my life, and if I think about it, probably that book set off a spark of worrying that I wasn't doing enough and that my life wasn't successful enough. I was doing all this soul searching and getting nowhere really, so I bought this book in the hope it would settle me back down into a path towards being 'the kind of person I'd like to be by 30' (which I think was the premise of the Defining Decade.)

And it did! The book is really, really full of different exercises that you have to do to explore your belief systems, who you are, what you want and so on. So I was taking them really seriously and writing a bunch of stuff in a journal. As I went along I skipped one or two of them because believe me there are a lot and you can't exactly do all of them in 5 minutes. She expects you to interview people, find mentors, do visualisation exercises, write a LOT and then go back over things and rate them or rethink them. Which is great actually because it's halfway towards getting real counselling or therapy, not just a book. But sometimes you can't necessarily be bothered to do them all, then you get freaked out and think you should be doing them or the book won't work.

But later on there's a chapter where she tells you that you have to get rid of the word SHOULD and stop building your life around other people's expectations anyway.

I quite liked this book and could really relate to quite a lot of it. I refer back to it occassionally, if i need some confidence in making some decisions, and to feel like there is someone who undertsands my situation. The thing i hate about these kind of books though is all of the tasks the book asks you to do, like writing down things you like and dislike and your feelings and emotions. (for example, if you've not had a lot of life experience, led a sheltered childhood, not had lots of relationships, not had different jobs etc how can you possibly answer those questions properly - its like trying to get the chicken before the egg) I suppose when i get around to doing those tasks, it may help me answer/address some of my quarter something questions and the direction i want my life to take.

It would have been nice if this was a 20-30 something book and had some 30 something examples.

Also, possibly it would be a good book to get our parents and male siblings to read, so that they understand the modern young woman and quandries that we face!

When I first read this book as a lost 20 something I found the advice so helpful and practical, it was the support I needed at the time. I still dip into it occasionally now I'm in my thirties when I need a different perspective on how to deal with something in life - Christine Hassler has a great way of writing, making you feel supported and empowered.

This is one of the best books I have ever read, it is like a best friend reassuring you that you are ok and giving helpful, frank and funny advice. It is really up to date with today's issues for twenty somethings. It is aimed at women but is really applicable to men also. I think every twenty something should have a copy.
