I have read "Getting A Life" and found it to be a real disappointment. The problem is that it is sold as a "companion" book, but the writers took the approach of assuming that you HADN'T read YMOYL and therefore spent half of the book rehashing the concepts from YMOYL. How that makes it a companion book I'll never understand.

My issue with the book is that I expected more from it, and was disappointed (especially since I bought it). If you can borrow it from the library and keep your expectations low, you may enjoy it more than I did. While I consider YMOYL to be a keeper for my personal library, I wouldn't bother with "Getting A Life."
