When her son Solomon graduated from high school, Terry McMillan was asked to be the guest speaker at the commencement ceremony. Determined not to be dull or redundant, Terry thought back to when she was stepping out into the world for the first time and the things she wished people had told her. Printing up what she thought were the most important tips for these new graduates, Terry was surprised to find that not only were these homemade pamphlets a hit with the students, but their parents clamored for copies too.
Now with It's Ok If You're Clueless, Terry McMillan brings her trademark wit and sass to every son and daughter about to take their first tentative steps into adulthood. Offering such nuggets as "Sit up straight," "Don't listen to your parents," and "Bring your laundry home," as well as "See the world" and "Read anything and everything," It's Ok If You're Clueless is packed with the commonsense advice and conversational tone that have made her novels classic bestsellers. Equal parts witty and wise, It's Ok If You're Clueless is the perfect gift for the college bound this May.

You have got to be kidding!
This book is really an interesting read. It¿s funny, factually serious, and will make you laugh at the same time. As the title suggests, there are times when one will be clueless while in college, or during the middle of an exam, and that is okay because it will balance out eventually. It is a learning experience and not the end! The book is easy reading. The chapters flow very well and the imagery in each chapter is very apparent. The most appealing chapter is about ¿Doing it with gusto!¿ Chapter number five is fireworks! Having self confidence, doing it with enthusiasm, and getting it right are ways to live by. There are some golden nuggets to live by in this book. For example, getting a summer job when school is out is a great thing. One should not get sloppy drunk and stay away from street drugs. Getting physical and staying in shape is a must. It is wonderful to get adequate sleep at night. Eating veggies and making God proud is awesome! These are some golden suggestions mentioned in the book. One can read this book in short order. It is excellent and will stimulate the mind. I have read it twice already.
Where is sample reading. Ridiculous. Only two pages.
