Caution: what you are about to read is real: names have been changed to protect the identities of the incent and the demented. If you haven't yet started the college living experience, then this book is what you need. Unlike other college anecdotes you might have seen, this one doesn't give a deceiving, sunshine approach to collegiate living. It isn't trying to soothe or coddle you when the world seems harsh, but instead gives clear, cold hard truths about what can happen when students choose to leave the nest. So be warned: these are true stories of roommate experiences that people have lived to share. Some will make you want to laugh, weep, repent, disinfect, or heave. It'd be best to wait until mom and dad drive away before opening this book; that way you can't change your mind and run back home. No doubt about it, Dorothy said it all when she left Oz, There's place like home. This book contains insane tales of deficient hygiene, soiled environments, untreated psychosis, and sexual malfunctions. Be advised that you may find it to be amusing yet strangely disturbing. Enjoy!
