This is a really enjoyable read and I'm an older adult. It reminds me what is important in the world and it's fun to see what college people think and feel. Some of them are crazy, but there's a lot of good I can use in my life even at this age.

not all of the advice is very wise.Structurally speaking the book is ok.I feel that the book did not contain anything in particular that I can take from it,mostly common sense.It contains some silly advice as well,about hangovers etc which was not really what I was looking for.
MrDog
It was n good read, humor-filled and accurate book of advice for young adults. I will be reading it again and again, even if it is just for a good pick-me up!

Though HOW TO SURVIVE THE REAL WORLD was written for the outside the college walls dilemma of college students with diploma in hand and eyes wide open with fear about stepping across the threshold into real adult life, this well designed and very informative book is a clever means for encouraging everyone who is making changes - whether that be from schooling or from career changes at any stage in life. Andrea Syrtash serves as special editor for this latest offering from the creative minds of the folks at Hundreds of Heads Books - a thoughtful publishing group that has hit upon a very user-friendly, unique, and entertaining manner of surveying important issues by seeking comments from thousands of individuals facing the problem subject of the book. The old adage of 'two heads are better than one' has been extended to 'many heads are better than just two', and the result is stimulating, easily digestible body information that is solidly practical and from a broad spectrum minds that comfortably offers from-the-trenches advice.

This helpful aid covers chapters ranging from topics such as selecting the type of job and the location and expectations involved, whether or not to return to further schooling and when and why, financial problems about credit cards and investments, the value of making contacts both as personal friends or people in the workplace who can help further the steps up the ladder of success, how to be 'on your own', to how to stay fit both physically and spiritually. The advice comes from interviews with regular people, the comments are brief but span a variety of viewpoints. The result is similar to stepping into a think tank for 'making it' outside the hallowed halls of ivy.

There is a lot of homespun wisdom in this fun little book. While it is an invaluable asset to the new grads, it is also a useful resource for people of all ages and walks of life as chances for growth become available! Well worth the purchase! Grady Harp, June 08

I am almost a junior in college now, and so when I saw this book I thought I didn't really need to worry about it yet. However, I'm glad that I picked it up and really gave it a look through. The topics in this book are not only relevant but also extremely helpful. After I started reading some of the tips and advice presented in the book, I couldn't help but keep skimming through. Everything from finding a place to live to finding a job that is right for you.

If you're worried about getting out into the real world on your own, or if you know someone who will be soon, this is a great book to get.

There are a lot of questions after graduation! It's nice to see that so many people feel the same way as I do. In this book, I can learn from their mistakes as well as from their good choices. The advice is totally varied (don't expect one expert opinion on what to do). It's also an easy read - you can start on page 120 or page 1. You don't have to read it in order since the advice is divided into sections; job, love, finance etC. Also, there are some good resources in here. Who knew that a discount on the Eurrail Pass is possible until the age of 26? (I thought it was over once you lost your student card) I'm glad I read this before my trip to Europe this summer!

Some of the advice in this book is really funny, but most of the book has helpful suggestions, information and resources for the reader to use. I had a party last week and actually followed the 'grown up' party suggestion page. I felt a little lame doing that, but nobody knew : ) The job stuff is helpful, too. I'm studying the what to look for in a job and how to impress pages now...
