You made it through graduation. You smiled for all those pictures and wore that cheap, shiny robe and dumb tassel. School is finally over and you are free. Free to live your own life, be your own boss, do your own thing - Pay your own bills, cook your own meals, start your new, real job. Uh-Oh. Okay. Maybe the 'Being an adult' Thing isn't all it's cracked up to be. But if you master the basics of survival, you'll be a few steps ahead of the game and ahead of your friends, which is all that really matters. That's where this book comes in. Yeah, I know. You just graduated. The last thing you need is another book to read. But this one is different. It actually has important stuff inside.
