It’s college graduation season, which means lots of twentysomethings are about to get crushed by reality — and that’s not limited to the stark demand difference between accounting and communications majors.

From what to check in a prospective apartment to navigating workplace romances (don’t ever get hookup with a coworker), there’s so much they don’t teach you in college it could fill a book. Thankfully for new grads, that book has been published. Based on Kelly Williams Brown’s blog comes Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps.

Geared to young folks who “wear a business suit to job interviews but pajamas to the grocery store” and have their own apartments “but no idea how to cook or clean,” Adulting is now a New York Times Bestseller.

“These are the steps I wish I’d had before I grew up. Wait-What am I talking about?” says Hollywood director J.J. Abrams. “These are steps I will start using today! Kelly Williams Brown writes as charmingly and hysterically as she does helpfully. Get this book and grow up!”

Lighthearted, fun and helpful, Adulting is a smart gift for any grad. What’s more, it’s currently on-sale at Amazon for 46% off, making it even more appealing for anyone who’s pressed for time, money and ideas.
