My Review

I picked this book because with a title like How to Ruin Your Life By 30, how can you not pick it up? Since I am in my twenties I thought this book would apply to me and I really enjoyed this short read. Only 135 pages this book is straight up advice on how not to ruin your life. Most of it is the obvious, don't make stupid decisions because they effect your life. Here are a few of the chapter's: Get off to a bad start, Ignore God's purpose for your life, Disregard what the Bible says about sex and marriage (and yes he does talk openly about this) among a few other things. These are all what not to do, because if this is how you live, it won't look good by the time you are thirty. I love how the author, Steve, implements what God wants in our lives with each chapter. Also, he does not condemn those who have done these things already. This book is directed to both men and women. The topic on marriage I thought was right on with finding a spouse and God's timing. While this book is not earth shattering information, I know all of these things, but it's a good reminder. This book started with Steve speaking to a graduating class and I think this is a great book for a new graduate or anyone in their twenties. 

For a short humorous but realistic read, I highly recommend!!
