In this guidebook, sociology professor Whelan provides frustrated 20-somethings a roadmap to success in harsh, postrecessionary reality, using her own WTF formulation: wisdom, tenacity, and fearlessness. Her hands-on self-help program, the result of a decade-long analysis of bestselling titles, from Scott Peck's legendary The Road Less Traveled to Suze Orman's Money Book, emphasizes the importance of determining (and remembering) values and purpose; she advises on everything from handling procrastination and stress to finding love and managing finances. Firsthand accounts of actual generation WTF-ers demonstrating the effectiveness of Whelan's techniques abound. Furthermore, the book involves a great deal of reader participation, making this solid book a tangible experience as well as an informative and inspirational one. Whelan's intent is pragmatic and meaningful: to create a sense of clarity in a universe of tormenting uncertainty. (Jan.)
