Ten Things I Wish I'd Known Before I Went Out into the Real World is a book by Maria Shriver, published in 2000. It evolved from her commencement address at College of the Holy Cross, during which she said "Ten Things I Wish Someone had told me at Graduation Before I Went Out in the World". They are elaborated in her book (listed as the titles of its chapters):: First and Foremost: Pinpoint Your Passion. No Job Is Beneath You. Who You Work for and with Is as Important as What You Do.

The book,,Ten Things I Wish Id Known was written by Maria Shriver, the wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger and a member of the Kennedy family. She writes about her speech in Holy Cross College which is about Ten things she wished she would have known when before she got out into the real world business. It is a very informative book, which is in my opinion worth to read. The whole book is about these ten things which are very closely described. These topics are all very important for the real world.

Maria Shriver shows that in this book that she was raised with a sense of honor . I am grateful that we have such a marvelous role model out there for young women today.

book by Maria Shriver. Maria Shriver shows that in this book that she was raised with a sense of honor and dignity that is rare. I wish that I had a mother like she has, I lost mine when I was too young. This book shows what good parenting can do for a person. Three cheers for Maria! Excellent life "guard"/guide!

I give this book to every High School or College Graduate.....and recently also gave it to my grandchild graduating from 8th grade because he is pretty mature. This book gives such good advice to young people going into another level of their lives. It is easy to read and such good common sense. The contents of the book started out to be a commencement speech and was later put into book form.

I am 56 and had I had this book to read in 1968 when I graduated high school I might have had the tools to do things a little better through my 20's and 30's. She gives you a rundown on what realistically to expect out of live, love, career and everything in between. I may have even been able to avoid my ex-husband!!!

This is a must gift for any young person, maybe even younger than a high school graduate. It could actually put a kids expectations into the realm of reality without putting a damper on any of the joys of life. This is not a book that a conservative religious advocate would have to avoid. It contains simple comman sense about life and how it differs from what kids would often see on TV, movies, or any other media they would encounter. It doesn't tell you what belief system is best, just what life is most apt to hand you on any given day.

It is easy reading and not very beefy, so even non-readers would benefit. They could use it as a reference book for a specific situation.

Great Birthday or Graduation or Holiday gift and reasonable priced, too.

This book is a "Cliff Notes" for life - an excellent gift for graduates and worthy of review for those who have been "out in the real world" for awhile. It grew out of a commencement speech the author gave at Holy Cross College. Encouraged by audience members and her friend, Oprah Winfrey, she has expanded it into book form.
Each chapter is arranged around a guiding precept detailed by anecdotes in her interesting and inspirational life. For instance: "Starting at the bottom builds character. It makes you hungry and determined. It is also a good way to find out, stunning as it may be, that you are not as smart as you think you are. " She then goes on to tell the reader about the bias against her when she started as an intern in her first "real life" newsroom. The news director thought she was a "dilettante ... 21 year old graduate from a fancy college - a RICH kid at that- coming in there thinking ` Ooooh fun! Can I play with the cameras too? Hey, I wanna go on the air!'" Maria showed him! "There was nothing I wouldn't do in that newsroom. I worked my *** off." (Wow! I didn't know the real Maria talked like that!) Now he's still in the small station newsroom and she's where she is.
The book is composed, not of platitudes, but rather kernels of wisdom that need to be passed on through the generations - especially today where "common sense" and "common etiquette" are not common enough.
I would give "10 Things" a 10 - but we are only allowed 5 stars.

This is a well written, lovely book.

I gave this book 3 stars, because some of the overriding principles might be of value to a recent graduate. I very well may have found some guidance from this book at that time in my life.
However, as someone just a tad younger than Ms. Shriver, I learned little from her book. Moroever, her lessons are garnered from an unusually sheltered position. Risks can be taken, and certain choices can be made, when one does not need to work. Her "asides" about her wealthy family (and spouse) become a little irritating. Also, while she undoubtedly had to work hard to get where she is, she needs to stop trying to convince herself that her name and connections didn't open any doors. . .
The writing, itself is not exemplary. It has a really "chatty" tone, which became a little irritating (especially the name dropping and the defensive "I'm not Oprah, you know. . .").

I first read this book about 10 years ago, and have been referring back to it ever since. I find myself quoting from it all the time without realizing how much these "ten things" have affected my perception of the role women play in the world around us.

Great little book. Excellent advice
Any man or woman, young or old, who has a passion for anything, whether it be career oriented or a hobby, should read this book. IT is inspiring and beautifully written. I have her tips written down in my dayplanner. When I get discouraged, I just pull them out and get all fired up for the real world again. Please, if you are like me, a young college gal, lost, unsure, and fearful towards entering the real world, give her book a chance. You will feel a renewed sense of confidence after finishing it.
