by Courtney C.W. Guerra

This practical but very readable guide has sections on all the nuances of working in an office or other more formal environment, from email salutations to getting enough sleep—YES, YOU DO NEED MORE THAN 4 HOURS PER NIGHT, recent college grads.  You are not a superhuman sleep-shunning college student anymore!  There's this thing called aging, you see...  While some of the advice in this book may seem like common sense (come on, even I knew that thing about the sleep, and I'm in college right now!), a lot of it is vital stuff that newcomers to a working environment might overlook as trivial, or just be totally lost on.  And still more of this sage advice is designed help readers to navigate very delicate tangled situations that might give even an old pro pause.  This comprehensive volume is a truly invaluable resource, and even better, it's tone is friendly, quietly funny, and reader-centric.  It's informative, but also a good read.
