About The Book

In this sidesplitting follow-up to his smash hit, Ruminations on College Life, Aaron Karo takes readers on another outrageous journey -- this time through his early twenties. With hilarious anecdotes and irreverent observations, Karo captures the twentysomething experience like never before and answers the question, "Is there life after college?"
Featuring the very best of his world-renowned email column as well as brand-new material published here for the first time, Ruminations on Twentysomething Life details Karo's evolution from frat boy to manhood and explores the frenzied lives of a generation living in the strange and unique gap between college and marriage. With his trademark acerbic wit, Karo ruminates on everything from your first day on the job to the last call at the bar.
Perfect for students about to get their first dose of reality, twentysomethings procrastinating at work, or anyone who wants to relive their glory days, this book is sure to have readers laughing out loud and nodding their heads in agreement that there is indeed life after college.

Raves and Reviews

"Ruminations on Twentysomething Life examines those awkward and absurd moments we all have after college but are afraid to admit. If Jerry Seinfeld and Candace Bushnell had an illegitimate child, its name would be Aaron Karo."
-- Farrah Weinstein, New York Post

"Karo supplies refreshing insight into the warped mind of the twentysomething male with both biting sarcasm and brutal honesty. Thank God I never hooked up with him."
-- Andrea Lavinthal, editor, Cosmopolitan, and co-author of The Hookup Handbook

"Focusing on a variety of inane but inescapably crucial subjects such as losing cell phones, trying to deal with the fact that your roommate is now in a relationship, dealing with first jobs you hate, overbearing but well-meaning parents, and of course, the constant pursuit of easy sex, Ruminations on Twentysomething Life reads like a hilarious how-to manual for the fresh out of college set....Aaron Karo's experiences are universal, but his ability to transform everyday minutiae into comic relief makes for addictive reading, no matter what your age."
-- Krys Longan, Steppin' Out Magazine
