Provides the young reader with the confidence to take a big stride both into adulthood and towards achieving their dreams. They will be armed with enough knowledge to avoid the top 100 future-wrecking errors that can be made, big and small. Packed full of information on such wide-ranging topics as getting a drivers license, job seeking, avoiding cons, OE travel, alcohol and drugs, flatting, pets, and relationships, the book is an immediately useful, fun toolbox to aid a young person in finding self and demystifying adulthood. It says: 'Don't be scared. You are not alone. Here is some well-supported wisdom to help YOU make decisions.' And the best thing about THE GUIDE is IT'S FUNNY. Not preachy, not boring, it doesn't sound like your mum; it's laugh-out-loud funny.

can I say WOW?? Where was this book when I needed it 30 years ago? I have now passed it on to my son (22)he's not really a reader, however he's being reading it for a week now and even shown it to a friend. I laughed and I cried, and I also learnt some very interesting things.
