I bought this book for my son. He had been asking for it, so it was a Christmas present. He has read it and really enjoyed it, telling me all about how to "survive". basically, it lived up to it's promise for him and this makes me happy. I have not read the book myself, so really cannot give any details, but if an 18 year old, with a very high IQ, says it's good, then that should say it all.
