"A hilarious guide to help young workers not be idiots....a guide to being an adult in the modern age." --Chicago Tribune

Stop saying "adulting" -- and other life advice you didn't know you needed. But you do.

It's no secret that being a grown-up can be hard. Most people spend a decade or more figuring out the unwritten rules of life through trial and error (mostly error).

Does Andy Boyle have everything figured out? No. But the honest and good-natured advice in this genuinely helpful book will help any newly minted adult get through the hard parts faster, guaranteed. (Note: sorry, not literally guaranteed.)

Topics include:

* The A**hole Test
* "Friend Zone," "Adulting," and Other Things to Stop Saying
* Should I Get Back with My Ex? (Spoiler: No)
* Networking Like a Not Gross Person
* Failing Isn't Failure, and Other Mostly Good Rules to Live By
* Don't Be Creepy

Perfect for anyone who's ready to graduate into adulthood, or at least out of their mom's basement.

Baker & Taylor
Shares humorous advice with twentysomethings about growing into adulthood, including how to date, how to achieve career success, and how to maintain health.

This self help book is great if you're 15-19 years old. Otherwise skip it.
