The Girls Guide to Absolutely Everything by Melissa Kirsch

The book for every twenty-something single girl who looks around and says, Toto, Ive a feeling were not in school anymore! A survival guide, advice column, how-to-live manual, best friend, and omnium gatherum of essential information, WHAT S A GIRL TO DO? covers everything from diet and exercise to understanding a Roth IRA to the ins and outs of internet dating. It is astonishingly complete, and written in a fresh, compelling voice with snap and irreverence that at the same time exudes authority, trustworthiness, and practical wisdom. Melissa Kirsch is a writer whos spent four years writing and researching this 600-plus-page book, whos consulted the experts, assembled a peer group of thirty wise women, and considered all the issues-- and who can make you crack up while describing how to prepare for a job interview or discussing the pitfalls of pantyhose. She covers Health & Body, or Real Women Eat Meat, Get Pap Smears and Negotiate Ceasefires with Their Full-Length Mirrors; Etiquette; Money/Finance, from credit cards and credit reports to the rent-vs-buy debate; Career; Dating, Sex and Romance; the emotional intricacies of Friends and Family, which debunks the myth that you cant fire your mother or that sibling rivalries never end; Living/De cor; even a pragmatic yet inspiring chapter on Spirituality & Self-Discovery, which argues (and gives solutions for) the importance of finding time for yourself, and deals with issues of integrity and emotional truth, therapy, faith, and positive self-love. Taken together, here is a tour de force thats elicited the same reaction from every older expert and mentorwhos read it-- I wish I d known this when I was in my twenties.
