Navigating the landscape of young adulthood is fraught with
challenges big, small, and existential that leave even the best of us
screaming internally. Guac Is Extra But So Am I: The Reluctant
Adult’s Handbook
 explains the realities of life
people expect you to know—but aren't usually spelled
out—through humorous, biting commentary, illustrations, and
guidance from those who have seen it all.
Packed with
discussions, tips, and advice on everything from the shifting etiquette
surrounding modern dating (Will you still love me when I’m no
longer young and tolerant of your substance abuse?
) to how you
should be forcing yourself to save for retirement (We're all just a
few breakdowns away from becoming an interior designer or golf pro
),
job hunting (No, you cannot choose “muse” as a career
path
), to the highly emotional and physical trials of moving (The
road to hell is paved with shag carpeting
). These topics, and
anything else that might fluster a young adult, are explored and
addressed with the author’s trademark wit and self-deprecating
style. Add in contributions from leaders in their respective fields,
including Mad Money’s Jim Cramer and editors ranging
from The New York Times to Town &
Country
, and Guac Is Extra But So Am I becomes an
illuminating guide to what it means to be a well-rounded individual in
a digitally evolving world ridden with student debt and Instagram
“models.”

The title and cover were so fun- all of my fellow librarians were excited to read this book! However, if you are over the age of 25, not much is of use. Ironically, this pretty much just talks about the basics of being an adult. Not much extra. If someone wants to write about being an adult (at any age) and struggling against conformity, this would be an excellent title. Figuring out what to buy for your kitchen and when to send a thank you... doesnt seem like guacamole to me.

This book was beyond funny (not to mention beautiful looking!) As someone in their mid-twenties who does not have her shit together, I appreciated the advise and humor that this book provided. A must have coffee table style book that actually has a lot of content to it!

Eh. I was hoping to read something more original or personal, but most of the takeaways were pretty contrived and cliche. I thought the humor was funny for the first chapter, then it became redundant. I laughed, though. I did think the advice on weddings and skin care were useful.

Sarah Solomon's Guac Is Extra But So Am I: The Reluctant Adult's Handbook is filled with an assortment of passages laced with Solomon's voice and personality. The way she writes makes me want to be her friend. She tells of real-life experiences from not just herself, but also anecdotes from peers and colleagues. Solomon writes with humor in order to keep her informative passages interesting, and she does this well. I found her usage of modern and informal language to be interesting and engaging.

Solomon writes with humor in order to keep her informative passages interesting, and she does this well. I found her usage of modern and informal language to be interesting and engaging. One of the strong characteristics of this book is the way it is organized. It reminds me of reading a textbook for a math or science class. It is very structured which I greatly enjoyed. Another interesting part of this book was the Solomon discussed relationships and how to handle them. It was interesting because she broke from her regular stylistic choice of sharing life experiences in order to give you the knowledge. With this chapter, she focussed less on telling her own persona; stories and more relating her humor and wit to her reader. There were only a few things I did not fully enjoy about Solomon’s stylistic choices. The first one was that her humor was rather repetitive and she didn’t break her structure very often. The second thing that I disliked about Solomon’s personal writing was that she was a bit aggressive and chose to tell rather than suggest what to do and what not to do. Though it is obvious that this was intentional as it is supposed to be a sort of rulebook, I felt it didn’t work with the overall message the book is supposed to send. ...more

Kinda useless for most people over the age of 18~19. Tries too hard with dry humor about drinking too much - wow, a twenty something binge drinking cheap alcohol and waking up in a dirty room, how novel! Not. I was into it at first, but by the end if the book I was so tired of that same repetitive White Girl humor.

Y'all know ya girl is equal parts extra and bad at adulting, so I knew I needed to read this book the moment I saw it! The book itself was equal parts funny and genuinely helpful. It was a fun, quick read so overall I would recommend it.

Easy read. A good tongue in cheek read for a early to mid 20s person to help figure out life after college.

Fun, quick read with cute illustrations. The advice is definitely more suited to young 20-year-olds. Humorous and relevant - I gifted it to my younger sister.
