I am a high school and college graduate - from many years ago. But I was recently widowed and on my own for the first time in my life. My grandaughter bought this book Real Life 101 for me! I never thought I would need such basic, elementary advice. But, as a widow, I had to do so many things on my own. And this book was my lifeline! I had to rent an apartment for the first time in my life. I had to learn how to develop a budget and handle my own finances. This book, and the workbook, was my "how to" map. Easy to understand guidelines, templates, fill in the blanks, kind of assistance. The combo book and workbook is a user-friendly, real-world tool for making INFORMED decisions about some pretty basic, pretty major decisions in life.

Real Life 101 is the most important book I own right now. I just rented an apartment and I'm getting heath insurance for the first time. This book, along with a course should be standard cirriculum in high schools and colleges across the country. I'm using the first chapter on budgeting right now, and the workbook to create a financial plan. I would reccommend it to virually anyone, especially those in or just out of school like me. What happens is, your parents and your schools take care of your insurance, transportation, budgeting, and credit cards. Then, once your on your own, you inherit these responsibilities on top of making a career. There are lots of great tips in here to help you navigate these responsibilites, so that you can focus on what you really want to do. "Real Life 101" is an excellent reference book, I truly thank the writers for putting it out.

Sincerely,

Josh

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book for those just starting out in the 'real world'. It's perfect for high school or college graduates. In school, you learn a lot of good stuff like history, math, etc., but you do not learn how to interface with the real world. This book helps you answer questions like: should you buy or lease a car? How much should you realistically expect it to cost? How do you set up appropriate healthcare for yourself?

This is all explained in plain english as well. I would recommend the companion workbook too, as it provides excellent worksheets.

This is the perfect graduation gift and I have already sent a few copies to some new entrants into the 'real world'.
