PURPLE TREE BOOKS REVIEW: An absolutely necessary read for anyone who is entering college, in college or finishing college! Not only are there valuable tidbits for managing college life, including a few financial tips, the authentic accounts of college experiences revel that what you are experiencing is common and there are ways to deal with it. From stress to fun, Kristen Fisher offers a great, insightful narrative describing issues that face the collegiate world.
BOOK SUMMARY: Encouraging college graduates to avoid a quarterlife crisis and embrace–instead of dread–life after school, this uplifting guide identifies ways to harness postcollegiate enthusiasm. From managing finances with an eye to the future and embarking on a fulfilling career path to balancing work and personal life, recent graduates will learn how to navigate this opportunity-packed time. Copious anecdotes illustrate the postschool ups and downs experienced by many of today’s graduates and identify common issues and possible solutions–including effective job hunting, evaluating the benefit of graduate school, living at home, and general stress and depression. While acknowledging that this can be a tumultuous and anxious phase, particular emphasis is placed on the positive aspects of the period immediately following higher education, such as career advancement and personal growth.
