The Girl's Guide: Getting the Hang of Your Whole Complicated, Unpredictable, Impossibly Amazing Life - Book Review

The Girl's Guide: Getting the hang of your whole complicated, unpredictable, impossibly amazing lifeThe Girl's Guide: Getting the hang of your whole complicated, unpredictable, impossibly amazing life by Melissa Kirsch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published April 22nd 2015 by Workman Publishing Company

A colossal cheat sheet for your post-college years, answering all the needs of the modern woman—from mastering money to placating overly anxious parents, from social media etiquette to the pleasure and pain of dating (and why it’s not a cliché to love yourself first).

A perfect combination of tried-and-true advice and been-there tips, it’s a one-stop resource that includes how to clean up your digital reputation, info on finding an apartment you can afford and actually want to live in, and why you should exercise the delicate art of defriending. Plus the fundamentals, from health (mental and physical) to spirituality to ethics to fashion, all delivered in Melissa Kirsch’s fresh, personal, funny voice—as if your best friend were giving you the best and smartest advice in the world.

Girl's Guide? More like a life saver- you know those floating devices- it's there to help you in the sea of life.
(That might be a weird metaphor since I hate -aka am deathly afraid of- large bodies of water.)

This is everything no one else is telling you. And with some things it's not like you can go up to people and ask. They never really know themselves anyway.

Melissa Kirsch is pretty much my new best friend for sharing all this information.
Not only is she giving great advice/tips but actual links to help you further.

Short of doing it all for you, she's basically giving you the best cheat sheet for life ever.

This book is the greatest things ever. At least for the lost confused "what now?" crowd, like myself.

I'm not entirely sure why I haven't bought another copy.
(Other than not trying to but any more books this year. Plus there's a whole chapter on money, so it's be weird to go against that.)
