<b>Hurrah, school's over! Now what?</b> Who better to dish out advice on the social etiquette of young adults than Lizzie Post, the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post? <b>How Do You Work This Life Thing?: Advice for the Newly Independent on Roommates, Jobs, Sex, and Everything That Counts</b> is more than a guide to wedding receptions, tipping, ordering wine, or the proper fork (although these topics are addressed). The fourth-generation Post espouses good manners when it comes to roommates, landlords, dating, entertaining, cell phones, health clubs, couch crashing and even one-night stands (yes, be sure to leave a note ). Post's conversational, down-to-earth tone, helpful lists (e.g., The Four Cardinal Rules of Borrowing and Ten Easy Hors d'Oeuvres ), questions and answers ˆ la great-great-grandmother Emily, and myriad Instant Tips combine to make this the quintessential guide for 20-somethings who strive for or simply need social grace.
