The Girls Guide
by Melissa Kirsch
A colossal cheat sheet for your post-college years, answering all the needs of the modern woman—from mastering money to placating overly anxious parents, from social media etiquette to the pleasure and pain of dating (and why it’s not a cliché to love yourself first).
A perfect combination of tried-and-true advice and been-there tips, it’s a one-stop resource that includes how to clean up your digital reputation, info on finding an apartment you can afford and actually want to live in, and why you should exercise the delicate art of defriending. Plus the fundamentals, from health (mental and physical) to spirituality to ethics to fashion, all delivered in Melissa Kirsch’s fresh, personal, funny voice—as if your best friend were giving you the best and smartest advice in the world.
I do believe it is a great book to have on the shelf. Especially for College Students and Post-Grads. A lot of the information isn’t taught and a lot of people go through life without knowing proper etiquette or what credit really is. Covering everything from IRA’s to relationships, the title definitely holds true to what it is.
The Girl’s Guide is funny, witty, and has plenty of great advice for those still trying to find balance in this hectic life. The book sheds light on all of the subjects we don’t really think to ask about. Sure, a lot of the information in The Girl’s Guide is stuff we already know. But everyone can use a little refresher sometimes. I loved how it was categorized and it does hold a lot of valuable information. Plus, the book is so pretty!
Overall, I personally think everyone should read this book. Or buy it for someone who you think should read it. It is really hard to find a book that covers all the knowings of adulthood. This one does a pretty good job at explaining everything and covering the basics. I am giving it 5 out of 5 hearts.
