Being an Adult
the ultimate guide to moving out, getting a job, and getting your act together

Adult life is full of mysteries. What should you check before renting a flat? How do you ask for a pay rise? Does anything really need to be dry cleaned? And why does everyone else seem to know these things except you?(They don't, but this book will help.)

Being an Adult is a practical and entertaining guide to the life skills you didn't learn at school, from when to ask for a discount or send a condolence card, to how to save money, and what you need to know before your first day at work.

If you've ever wondered when you're going to become a 'real' grown-up, this book—with top tips from 20- and 30-somethings, and proper adults including a plumber, a doctor, and a personal finance expert—will give you the answers you need.
