Call me Light ,

Great read

This book is written with a wonderful balance of practical advice and witty humor. As a new grad (and soon to be newly independent), I found the book to be filled with many helpful tips applicable in all areas of "adult" life. I would definitely recommend it!

Didn’t learn a single thing from this book with tips like “wash your hands” and “call your parents”

Waste of time and money
