Lots of good suggestions in this book. Here is a sampling: How to - open a bottle of champagne; jump start a car; apply eighth grade math; carve a turkey; replace a pane of glass; back up a trailer; go sailing; entertain a party of six.

I think this is a really great little book, full of lots of helpful advice. A terrific addition to a home library or a nice gift for a recent graduate or someone who is striking out on their own for the first time. Definitely recommended!
