After spending longer than I should reading through library guide after library guide, I admit I was a little sceptical when I came across this. First finding several articles extracted from the book online, I soon realised that my assumptions of another "boring comprehensive guide" were the total opposite.
This is definitely that kind of book you keep, even if it no longer serves a purpose to you. It is in fact, an intriguing read, bringing into perspective a great deal more relating to the process of actually building a life, instead of only providing the basics, allowing you to feel as though the book is understanding of the human nature.
Being a young student setting out to make my path in the world I found this a great comfort to read, being worried about the complications and lengthy processes involved, they were however explained to me in great depth. Aside from being a more personal read, it is also far more interesting and detailed than a number of other guides, leaving no subjects uncovered so you are spared the head-scratching.
