Written like a MTV-generation version of a Dennis Miller rant on the subject of what to do when life becomes less planned, this book, written by the men who launched gradspot.com, attempts to compile any number of resources that the recent graduate can use. It also tries to comfort those who may not be an instant success coming out of college.

Incredibly practical and conducive to self-examination, it tends to fall short in its rhetoric. How many times can you throw in a “hip” reference to connect to kids today before it becomes annoying?
