What do you do when your coworker smells? When you blurt out “I love you!” by accident? When you spill soda on your potential boss during a job interview? Sometimes life just gets . . . so awkward!

Hope for the best  . . .  but prepare for the worst! From personality clashes and tongue-tied conversations to all those painfully embarrassing moments, The Awkward Human Survival Guide offers a road map through life's most uncomfortable situations. Humorously and smartly written by two popular bloggers who've lived through it all, it explains how to call out a friend's BS, handle that accidentally blurted “I love you,” confront a kitchen thief at work, and much, much more!
