The ultimate companion to Fresh Meat, the award-winning Channel 4 comedy by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain

What's the secret to JP's sexual prowess? How does Howard beat the buffet every time? What does Vod really think about drink, drugs and Salman Rushdie? And will Kingsley's diary spill his true feelings for Josie? (hopefully not as stomach-churning as Oregon's sext messages with Professor Shales...)

Edited by Oregon, and with contributions from all of the housemates, this is a real guide to student life - the one the preachy brochures and prospectuses don't tell you about. From moving into a student house to fresher's week, from choosing courses to choosing friends, the book records every detail - hilarious, sordid, poignant and triumphant - as the young ones stumble through university life. A scrap book of diary entries, manifestos, diagrams and guidelines it includes: JP's weekly shopping list and first Hollywood screenplay, Josie's student recipes for 'Munge' (and 'Chunge'), Vod's literary criticism and hangover cure, Howard's James Bond fan-fiction, Oregon's literary erotica and Kinglsey's band reviews and critique of the Ultimate Frisbee Society.

'A worthy successor to The Inbetweeners ... the best programme about students since The Young Ones' Daily Telegraph on FRESH MEAT

'I never thought I'd enjoy reliving the abject horror of my student days quite as much as I have' Guardian on Fresh Meat

'This book's main purpose is to encourage having a laugh, but, like the best laughs, it is based on facts that ring true' Evening Standard
