About the book

Freedom at last! But there’s an awfully long time between cornflakes and cocoa, and a limit to how many sudokus you can do. You need survival skills: 

  • FINANCIAL WIZARDRY: how to get three cups of tea out of one bag.
  • SPARKLING CONVERSATION: 300 different ways to discuss the weather.

Treat it as a new job! At least you can’t be made redundant. But complain regularly, otherwise everyone will be doing it.
