I requested this through BookMooch. I hope the Mooch comes through because I really do want to read this book even though my college days are long over.

I enjoyed this book very much. Parts of it were really funny.

My favorite sections are the "hippie" portion of "How to Take on a New Identity" (it's spot on); the food equivalency chart (the calorie equivalent in mugs of beer for a variety of food items); "How to Eat When You're Broke;" "How to Sleep in the Library;" and "How to Tell Your Parents

As a college graduate, I can appreciate some of the 'advice' this survival guide gives you. It plays on old college cliches and actually gives the occasional pearl of wisdom but it is mostly a humor novel. I know me and my roommates never did make curtains out of old shirts. If you're going to get it, get it for the humor. There are plenty of other books that give real advice and the truth is often stranger than fiction.

Even though I'm done with undergrad, this book is still amusing enough to be worth a read on its own. My favorite part was the diagrams that come up every few pages or so. They seemed very self-important for how absurd the situations were, eg, "In the case of a stadium riot, move quickly away from the mascots."

Not my thing, but a few of the parts made me laugh. Definitely a good read to just look at college stereotypes and get a good laugh about them.

This book was facinating and gave a inside scoop of the overexaggerated college life, we'll see.

I write. That’s rather obvious. Mostly I write about things that blow my skirt up. Humor is a big—huge—part of everything I do. But then there’s that soft, squishy sentimental part of me that can’t help but rear its heartfelt head. And since I like to tell people what to do every chance I get, I write a lot of how-to books, blogs, and articles.

Humorous. Heartfelt. How-to. Three great tastes that t
