Description

The ultimate guide to faking it through the real world! Now the people who bring you the Web's most popular humor site teach you how to live the good life (or at least look like you do).

With annual revenues surpassing $6 million and an astonishing 10 million unique visitors a month, CollegeHumor.com ranks within the top six hundred Web sites worldwide. Now, in a follow-up to their recently launched The CollegeHumor Guide to College, these cheeky alumni offer real-world novices a guide to getting ahead--without getting out of bed before noon.

In Faking It readers will learn how to bluff their way through on-the-job conversations, woo cute art students with the compelling use of the term "postmodern," and feign a deep appreciation of Neruda. The CollegeHumor team of experts provides everything required to pull off an outstanding social life, including appearing to have cultural knowledge beyond references gleaned from The Simpsons. The sexual, financial, and social arenas have never been more competitive, so it can't hurt to act like you understand classical music, even if you prefer light beer to light opera.

Published just in time for graduation, Faking It is the poseur's bible, but with less religious overtones than the real bible--and more pointers on conspicuously carrying an NPR tote bag.
