Publisher's Summary


If you graduated from college but still feel like a student...if you wear a business suit to job interviews but pajamas to the grocery store...if you have your own apartment but no idea how to cook or clean...it's OK. But it doesn't have to be this way.
Just because you don't feel like an adult doesn't mean you can't act like one. And it all begins with this funny, wise, and useful book. Based on Kelly Williams Brown's popular blog, Adulting makes the scary, confusing "real world" approachable, manageable - and even conquerable. This guide will help you to navigate the stormy Sea of Adulthood so that you may find safe harbor in Not Running Out of Toilet Paper Bay, and along the way you will learn:


What to check for when renting a new apartment - not just the nearby bars, but the faucets and stove, among other things
When a busy person can find time to learn more about the world - It involves the intersection of NPR and hair-straightening
How to avoid hooking up with anyone in your office - Imagine your coworkers having plastic, featureless doll crotches. It helps
The secret to finding a mechanic you love - or, more realistically, one that will not rob you blind
From breaking up with frenemies to fixing your toilet, this way fun comprehensive handbook is the answer for aspiring grown-ups of all ages.

Great for Young Adults

Great book, very funny and yet, very truthful and educational – even from a guys’ perspective, especially if that guy has a daughter in their late teens like I do. Well written and loved the narrator too. Also loved the comments on how adults never have vacation because you are doing twice the amount of work before and after while stressing about it during. So relatable!

I’ve already purchased the hard copy version as well and can’t wait to recommend the book to my 18 year old daughter!

Mandatory reading for 18 - 14 yr olds!

Adulting is a book of great, concise, useful information delivered in a realistic, approachable, and funny manner. Seriously, everyone in America should read this as a high school senior. It would have saved me A LOT of headaches (and embarrassment) if I had this book in high school or college. Even if you're a grown woman like me (I'm 37) you should read it for the laughs and nostalgia . . . and who knows, you might even learn a thing or two!
