– Alexandra Levit, author of Blind Spots: The 10 Business Myths You Can’t Afford to Believe On Your New Path to Success

This book is funny, heartfelt, and important. Your twenties are a time of life that most people tend to glamorize or dismiss. Paul does neither. I especially liked #6.
– Jeff Goins, author of Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life

I love this book. 101 Secrets for Your Twenties is like a concentrated blender-shot of fluorescent green, ice crystally advice, insight, and wisdom. Toss your head back and enjoy the cold jolt.
– Neil Pasricha, author of the New York Times bestseller The Book of Awesome

101 Secrets is a masterpiece. Full of brilliant advice wrapped in belly-laughing hilarity, Paul Angone has a true gift for troubleshooting the trials and tribulations of post-grad adulthood. This book is a must-read for twentysomethings and beyond who are struggling with how to navigate in today’s hyper-connected, chaotic world-and the book itself is formatted as a fun, engaging page-turner. Paul promises “wheelbarrows full of wisdom-stuffed pearls, laced with humor and vulnerability,” and that’s exactly what you’re going to get. Just don’t ask him to whip you up a Venti half-caf 2.5-shot sugar-free-vanilla no-foam upside-down latte.
– Jenny Blake, author of Life after College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want

Paul gives humorously wise insights that will give twentysomethings a sneak peak of what’s to come, perspective that will help them breathe and the reality that they aren’t alone. My top three . . . er . . . sixteen were: #2, #3, #7, #9, #18, #21, #24, #38, #47, #77, #80, #84, #87, #95, #100 and #10’s nineteenth point made me say, “TRUTH!” out-loud. Being the ripe 30-year-old that I am, you can trust me.
– Joy Eggerichs, director of Love and Respect Now

Paul is an emerging voice for this generation. He understands the unique struggle of those going through the rocky, ambiguous, thrilling decade of their twenties and has a gift for delivering rock-solid truth packaged in laugh-out-loud humor.
– Christine Hassler, author of 20 Something Manifesto, speaker, life coach

Paul knows twentysomethings. He shares secrets that are really gold, even to non-twentysomethings. Gold to understanding twentysomethings. Gold to understanding today. Understanding this generation. Understanding your kids. The book helps me be a better father . . . a better pastor. I feel more prepared. Don’t tell my boys-or the young people at my church. It’s supposed to be a secret.
– Ron Edmondson, pastor, organizational leadership consultant

101 Secrets is the perfect mix of humor and wisdom. I read it in a single sitting, but the insights will stick with me for a long time. My favorites are #2, #5, #33, #71, #81 and #97 (plus several more but I was only allowed to pick a few). Where was this book when I graduated from college?
Allison Vesterfelt, author of Packing Light

What Paul Angone has done in 101 Secrets for Your Twenties may well be the definitive field manual for post-graduates. He’s a gifted writer, blending humor, stories, truth, and advice in a way that makes anyone the wiser for picking this up. Best of all, he helps young people lay a foundation for success later in life. If you don’t believe me, then read #7, #19, or #61.
Sam Davidson, author, college speaker, social entrepreneur

I always tell people that I’m enjoying my 30s way more than my 20s and now I know why: I didn’t have this book! Secrets #21 and #36 alone would have helped me through so many situations. I can’t tell you how happy I am that this book exists for the next generation!
Bryan Allain, author of This is NOT a Treasure Map and Actually, Clams Are Miserable

As a recent escapee of my twenties, I wish I had been given a book like this when I graduated from college.  In an age when we are led to believe that a college diploma is a winning lottery ticket for a dream job, and uber-success is as easy as writing the perfect status update on Facebook, Paul’s book is a fantastic, fun, and above all true guide for the often frustrated, fearful, or just flat broke twentysomething.  Keep a special lookout for secret #8, #21, and #76. Secret #76 has been pretty much the last ten years for me.
Matt Appling, teacher, pastor, and author of Life After Art: What You Forgot About Life and Faith Since You Left the Art Room

101 Secrets for Your Twenties is a refreshingly honest compilation of life truths. Paul Angone has cleverly put into words our twentysomething experience, yet with a passionate andpurposeful goal of helping young adults navigate this unique stage in life without regret. If you’re like me, you’ll laugh (especially at secrets #5, #17, and #44), ponder (secrets #29 and #43), and say a lot of “Amens!” along the way (secrets #1, #21, and #53).
