Provides the young reader with the confidence to take a big stride both into adulthood and towards achieving their dreams. They will be armed with enough knowledge to avoid the top 100 future-wrecking errors that can be made, big and small. Packed full of information on such wide-ranging topics as getting a drivers license, job seeking, avoiding cons, OE travel, alcohol and drugs, flatting, pets, and relationships, the book is an immediately useful, fun toolbox to aid a young person in finding self and demystifying adulthood. It says: 'Don't be scared. You are not alone. Here is some well-supported wisdom to help YOU make decisions.' And the best thing about THE GUIDE is IT'S FUNNY. Not preachy, not boring, it doesn't sound like your mum; it's laugh-out-loud funny.

“The non-fiction category this year produced some very high quality titles. This is pleasing to see in an environment where children tend to turn to the computer for their information. All titles were readable with quality information and illustrations and are the sorts of books children will love to delve into... We would like to make special mention of “The Guide” by Mike Loder and Terry Williams. This self help guide for young adults is comprehensive and honest with loads of useful information. It is pleasing to see a book of this sort which is applicable to New Zealand.”

I wish I could get to read it. A friend took it before I had a chance to read it for their son in his 20s. He loved it then on-loaned it. I think its on to the 3rd loanee now. Must be good!
