Adulting Made Easy by Amanda Morin is a self-help guide for those who are about to embark on life on their own, those who have already taken the leap but made a proper mess of it, and anyone else who happens to or knows somebody else that falls within this sphere. In a straightforward narrative, Morin provides her own personal story with no-frills honesty before breaking the book down into ten separate chapters. Within this structure, real-world information is highlighted under categories ranging from budgeting and job interviews to identity theft and health insurance, moving forward with topics such as laundry, and the importance of expecting the unexpected, among many other things.
Adulting Made Easy is the book I wish I'd had when, exactly as author Amanda Morin describes herself, I left the nest at 19 and fell flat on my face. Thankfully, I am able to confidently project higher hopes onto my eldest daughter based in no small part on what Morin has put out now. Even so, it appears I still have a ton to learn. The recommendation to Google yourself regularly and to even set a Google Alert was not something I even considered, but makes absolute sense in a day and age where social media can derail a career trajectory in the span of a news cycle, whether deserved or not. Morin injects a bit of self-deprecating humor that makes her easy to connect to, and the layout of the book is crafted in such a way that there are highlighted boxes, bullet points, and steps so everything is easy to follow. This is an excellent guide that definitely belongs in the hands of my kids, and likely in the hands of yours too.
