From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-For young adults getting their first jobs, moving into their own living quarters, or about to go off to college, this guidebook provides a basic look at what it takes to make it in today's world. Each chapter covers a major area in life skills without becoming a lecture or sounding like the proverbial parental talk. Beginning with social skills, the author also includes business, financial, consumer, and some legal information, such as the importance of reading and understanding contracts. Lists concerning the baseline needs of living independently include kitchen supplies and other basic household items. "How-tos," as in how to do laundry, keep a car running, plan meals, and buy supplies, round out the information. Each chapter can easily be read independently. Important points are repeated within boxes or set off with bullets. The type is large enough to encourage reading without seeming overwhelming and the use of white space provides just the right amount of delineation.
