    Finally, The Perfect Collge Guy

    Bookstores are full of guides to college. The ¿how-to¿s¿ of maneuvering Greek life, relationships, academics, friends, becoming successful and living happily ever after. Typically, however, these books provide advice that would have sufficed when your parents were in school, yet have no relevance to college life today. The Best of, based on the nationally syndicated column ¿,¿ delivers a strikingly bare and honest look into issues that affect real students on real college campuses. Brought to you by the creators of The Rejection Hotline, the book is setup on a month by month basis, beginning with homesickness in September and continuing through relationships in August. A series of questions and answers, the introduction warns readers that ¿parents will hate it because [it] will shatter their naïve view of what college is really like these days.¿ However, this is one of the most engaging qualities of the book, the frankness and candor with which questions are answered. Most college guides sugar-coat answers, leading you into a false sense of security. Yet, this book takes a different approach. Sarcastic, and sometimes condescending, ¿the college guy¿ discusses the real issues you¿ll face as a freshman, everything from under-age drinking and pre-marital sex to transferring schools and dealing with college professors. A compilation of advice from students and recent graduates, The Best of makes the perfect gift for the high school graduate or the confused college freshman, and it even makes a good read for the parents who want to know what college is really like!

    Be careful reading this book in public, because you will be laughing out loud. This book is unbelievably witty and sarcastic yet avoids being tacky and provides legitimate advice for college students. Written from the perspective of the stereotypical egotistical college party boy the book tackles real issues that students face everyday but does not give unrealistic parental answers. By far, the most hillarious book targeted at college students.
