Recommends it for: people in their late 20s
Shelves: comedy
So I read this book because I enjoyed the first one so much, but the fact that he was 26 when he wrote it, it was virtually over my head because I had yet to experience anything he was joking about. BUT if you are in your early 30s and out of that crazy first apartment, first job and your very first friends who get married, by all means this is awesome.
Full of the musings, misadventures, and anecdotes of a guy who is learning to live life on his own in New York City. Some are more funny than others and some are easier to relate to than others but overall I enjoyed it and got a few laughs from his sarcastic musings or him just making an ass out of himself.

Recommends it for: twenty-something college grads
I read his column that he writes every two weeks and this guy just makes me laugh and I can relate to everything that he writes.
not amazing but an old fave. If you like him/it, subscribe to his free biweekly email column at!
This followup focuses on post-college life.

Not as good as the first book, but it has its moments.

I love the section when he talks about cubicle life particularly the secret pooping.
