This book is probably best suited for someone who's been out of college for a few months. Having been out of college for two years now myself, I felt like much of the book's advice covered things I'd learned by now. Nonetheless, it does a job of covering roommate relations, things to consider when hosting get-togethers or going out, and reminders of how to make a good impression in the work-place. Some of the tips seemed too old-fashioned to me and/or based on outdated gender norms. The work also seemed to assume its audience came from an upper class or upper middle class background in terms of economic expectations and considerations, and not fully aware of spending limits.

Would I recommend the book? Mmm, probably not, but at least it made me feel like a slightly less awkward twentysomething than I sometimes feel.
