New York Times best-selling author of such hits as How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Waiting to Exhale, Terry McMillan utilizes her trademark sass to craft this funny and extremely useful guide for today's college-bound young adults. When she was asked to speak at her son's high school commencement, McMillan started jotting down practical tips to share. She eventually collected enough wisdom to produce a pamphlet and hand it out at the ceremony. To her surprise, advice like, "Don't listen to your parents," was a big hit with the graduates and their parents. Now all of McMillan's tidbits are collected here in this witty, concise volume. University students-to-be will appreciate the vital information and conversational tone of this honest book, as will anyone who has ever been through the college transitional process.
