“Even though it's mostly a comedy book, I can't help but think how legitimately useful I would have found [100 Tricks] in my early twenties. If there is someone who has just graduated uni or has recently entered the workforce, for the love of God, buy it for them. Stick it in their stocking. And "circle back" later to see if they enjoyed it.”
