A very cute little book I got as a birthday gift :)) loved the style of this and the topics handled, especially the overall girl-boss-chest-out-head-up vibe, HOWEVER quite heteronormative at times. Stay woke Alanna Kalb xx

The book is a good pocket size and has some nice quick tidbits from changing a tire to cooking. I just feel like it lacks more pictures and descriptions but it still is a pretty good stocking stuffer or small gift.

Can't resist the cover, I really can't. It's so cute and the blue looks really pretty. Not too surprisingly, I found this book quite useful. I think it's a good idea then to bring it when you're in a middle of a trip. Who knows you gonna need that?

I feel like I knew most of this stuff, it's common sense. But that parallel parking section may come in handy. :)

I'm a guy and this taught me a ton of stuff I wish I knew before. Includes a good mix of info.

Recommends it for: College bound young women
Shelves: _read-in-2014, how-to
As a gift for young lady who is moving out to her own apartment or going off to college, this book is very useful and I give it 4 stars.
If you are an adult who has lived on your own for a year or more, this book isn't going to tell you anything that you don't already know or can't find via google or wikihow so it's only 2 stars.
I'm splitting the difference and giving it an overall rating of 3 stars.

The advantage to this book is bringing all the "how to's" together in one convenient book.
Cute gift for a sister or a daughter, perhaps if they are going off to college. Like all advice, it should be taken with a grain of salt. It is humorous at times but far and away the best part of the book is the last page which lists all the things you should know that the book can't tell you.

I flip through this from time to time as a nice little refresher.

Kind of silly, but there's some reasonably useful stuff--little that common sense can't figure out, however.
