About the book
You're twenty-five but feel forty-five. You should be having the time of your life. But all you do is stress about your future-free job, low salary, alleged friends and non-existent partner. If your life was a movie it would go straight to video. And nobody would rent it.

Researching this book Damian Barr spoke to hundreds of men and women in their twenties from all over the UK - everybody had a different story, but there were common themes. Almost everyone felt they should be doing better, earning more, living faster and looking better than they do now.

Work, Housing, Money and Relationships are what we all worry, dream and talk about. The quarterlife crisis can affect any, or all, of these areas. Get It Together is structured in four parts and each part looks in depth at one such area. Is it worth doing a postgrad or working abroad? Should you buy or rent? What are the true start-up costs of your first job, and how do you negotiate pay? Is the person you first started going out with as a fresher still right for you? Are you still right for them? Is the answer non-monogamy?

The big question is: is the pressure to get it together making you fall apart? If so, you're in good company. If not, go away. Nobody wants to hear about how fabulous your life is.
