How to Be Useful by Megan Hustad

Taking on everything from slapdash bitchery to strategic self-deprecation, HOW TO BE USEFUL is a delightfully original, unerringly hip handbook for a new generation. "Long story short: This is the book you'll want to travel back in time and press into the hands of your 22 year old self so that she doesn't, say, respond to a question from her boss about whether she knows so-and-so with, 'Oh, yeah, I smoked pot with him once!' You'll probably also want to give it to your intern. (You know, the one who rolls in at 10:00 and takes three-hour lunches.)" - Galleycat.
