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!
Avid reader; audiobook junkie. Obsessed with Terry Pratchett's Discworld. Eclectic tastes, with a heavy does of sarcastic humor.
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!
I loved everything about this book. I bought it on a whim and with severe skepticism because I'm from the generation of current urban twenty-something's who feel too cool for "self-help" books. What a lucky impulse buy! It's hilarious, and feels more like chatting with a trusted older girl friend than a preachy or cheesy self help book. There are several one liners or tips from the book that keep popping into my head since I've read it, and I honestly feel like I learned helpful things from this book. If you like Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham, you will like Kelly Williams Brown, and you might even get motivated to actually have the oil changed in your car.
It reminded me of "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" by Mindy Kaling, in tone and format, but of course to different purposes.
I adored Anjili Pal's performance. She hit it perfectly, and she sounded like I was talking to a good girl friend. I kept having to remind myself that she was not in fact the actual author.
Hilarious. Honest. Helpful. Truthful. Witty.
I'm a little disappointed. There's some good tidbits in here but honestly nothing that doesn't seem like fairly common sense. This would be a good book for someone who grew up very very sheltered. Or pampered. There was a few funny parts but other than that I think as a whole - this book would make a good blog post- but as an actual book- meh.
I was expecting something humorous about growing into maturity, something I could quote from when I teach. It was not funny., nor profound. The reader's voice carried strong tones of disdain and disgust. There was also too much use bad language for expletives.
Cute, with lots of helpful tips! Feels like you're listening to a best friend give advice. Recommended!
There are billions of books out there on how to be an adult, but this one really sums up EVERYTHING in a no BS way. I will definitely be referring to this book over and over in the future.
