by Andrea Syrtash

After the parties, the frat rushes, the Big Test and the Big Game, the caffeinated all-nighters, and the pomp and circumstance, life comes knocking. Finding a job and keeping it; renting an apartment or sharing a sublet; dealing with your own money instead of your parents' money; looking for love (and looking and looking . . . ): who knew how complicated the world after college would be? Nearly 800 contributors to this How to Survive book found out, and happily share their hard-won insights. This useful, upbeat book collects stories, tips, and advice on finding the best place to live, entering adulthood without losing passion, taking care of one's health, finding a great job, and not going home for the holidays for the first time. Covering both the psychological adjustments and the nuts and bolts of daily life as a grown-up, How to Survive the Real World is witty, practical, and the perfect gift for the nervous grad.
