How to Ruin Your Life By 30 Review

Book Review: 

How to Ruin Your Life by 30

By Steve Farrar

“Do drugs, don’t listen to your parents, and party ‘til the Residence Assistant comes knocking.” This was what I expected as I picked up the simple red-covered book. However, to my delight, the book gives the deeper level to the mistakes most 20-somethings make in a seemingly short decade.

I found the advice speaking to motives and what desires lie behind actions people regret in earlier decades. Since it took me beyond the proverbial list of “dos and don’ts,” I found the advice refreshing. As I gear up for my 30th birthday in six months, I have a short time to recover. Yet I know the lessons learned will infiltrate the future decades I (hope) I have remaining.

I think it’s appropriate for any age to read, but especially those entering a new phase of life.
