Praise for this book

As a parent of a 17-year-old daughter who just graduated high school, I found this book to be an invaluable resource as she prepares for her international travels. It covers a wide array of practical skills that are crucial for a young adult stepping out into the world. From managing finances in different currencies to understanding public transport in foreign countries, the book offers clear, easy-to-understand advice. My daughter especially appreciated the tips on staying safe while travelling alone. This book has given both of us peace of mind as she embarks on her journey. A must-read for any young adult setting out on their own adventures. Pamela Williams


I highly recommend this book as an essential companion to Year 12 students. As Head of Senior School, I feel it bridges the gap between academic knowledge and real-world skills, preparing them for life beyond the classroom. The comprehensive coverage of topics like first aid, financial management, and independent living is precisely tailored to the needs of young adults entering a new phase of life. We've even incorporated it into our life skills curriculum, and the feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive. This book is a valuable tool in equipping our students with the confidence and competence to navigate the challenges of adulthood. Dr. M. Noble (Head of Senior School)


I purchased this book for my grandson, who is moving out for the first time, and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It's packed with practical advice, from cooking simple meals to managing household expenses, which is perfect for someone just starting to live independently. The clear, straightforward instructions on everyday tasks have given him the confidence to handle his new responsibilities with ease. It's more than just a guide; it's a comprehensive handbook for any young adult learning to stand on their own two feet. I am delighted to see him apply these life skills in his daily routine and highly recommend this book to other grandparents in similar situations. Wendy Venner
