All in all, this is a great, relaxed read for anyone who has ever, will ever, or may ever potentially be involved in an awkward situation. And that's you.
The anecdotes are wonderful, along with the advice about what to say and do when it comes to resolving or cleaning up after some sticky situations (sometimes literally, sometimes not).
Also, one thing I noticed other reviews haven't mentioned: the layout of the chapters is really useful. You can read them in any order you please, and they're divided nicely into categories including social interactions, dealing with society, friends and acquaintances, dating, sex, family, and work. So pretty much every category you'll ever need. It truly is a guide, like an encyclopedia, even.
Finally, be sure to check out The Awkward Human Survival Guide podcast, where you can send in your own questions and have the authors and some of their friends help you out with them. It's over at awkwardhuman.com/podcasts
And no I'm not advertising for them, it's just awesome okay?
There is something in this book for everyone and I highly recommend it.
