Sunday Book Club – As Good As It Gets: Life Lessons from a Reluctant Adult, Romesh Ranganathan

Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews. Today we look at a book by Romesh Ranganathan.

As Good As It Gets: Life Lessons from a Reluctant Adult (2020)

Romesh Ranganathan


Confronted by the realities of adulthood, Romesh Ranganathan must face an uncomfortable truth: this is not quite how he imagined it.

Positive Points

As Good As It Gets: Life Lessons from a Reluctant Adult is the second book and this time it is not autobiographical instead it looks at different topics and talks about them. Ok, so Romesh talks about his experiences with different subjects but it is very different to Straight Outta Crawley . There are so many topics that this book covers including everything from holidays to friends, to computer games and dancing. They are fun to read and also exciting to get a different perspective on these topics.

Negative Points

The chapter about lockdown, it was such a trend at the time for people to write about that moment in history but it still feels a but too soon to be reading about what we all experienced as it seems predictable.

Overall Review

It is a book that is both easy and fun to read with lots of laughter along the way, if you want something that you can get into easily and come back at anytime then this is the book for you.
