Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974415987, Paperback)

So you’ve finally moved out of the house. Now what? Plunge into real life with a safety net. If you can’t cook, always shrink your socks, and have no idea where to find your stove’s pilot light, this is the guide for you.

In the Real U Guide to Living on Your Own you’ll find answers to nearly every practical question young adults face in when they first leave home, including:

· What to do when the power goes out
· How long to nuke various foods
· How to cope when the toilet backs up into the tub
· How to set limits with parents and maintain independence
· How to have fun on a tight budget

In the trademark Real U style, Liesa Abrams lays out simple solutions and provides “light bulb moments” for a wide range of everyday problems. Her “Gourmet for Geeks: 3 Great Meals Anyone Can Make” is sure to be popular with the ramen-five-times-a-week crowd. Four-color photographs and the magazine-style layouts make even mundane chores, like ironing a dress shirt, fun. For anyone who’s ever been afraid to flip a circuit breaker or wondered how long to nuke a frozen hamburger patty, this guide is invaluable.
