Description

An irreverent guide and gift book explaining what it means to be an adult in the real world.

What does it mean to be an adult? When am I an adult? How can I adult? How can I possibly get to the end of this page without checking social media?

To be an adult, physically, is to be a person who is fully grown or developed. To be an adult socially is to be financially self-reliant (to have a job), to be independent (to not live with your parents), and responsible (to be able to make sensible decisions). Legally you are an adult at 18, but adulthood can be a state of mind. There are children out there running their own companies. They are adulting better than you.

Stephen Wildish presents his findings, via charts, graphs, and illustrations, of what it means to adult in the areas of bed, work, social media, household chores, grooming, conversations, finances, and food and drink in this hilarious and relatable gift book, for anyone questioning whether or not they're doing this thing—i.e. "adulting"—correctly.

A hilarious gift for:

  • White elephant, gag gift, or stocking stuffer
  • New high school or college graduates
  • Teen girl or boy birthday
  • The friend or family member who refuses to grow up
