Format: Paperback
This book is entertaining and actually rather informative. Boyett explains things in ways that make everything simple and makes you laugh out loud in the process. It covers everything from how to prepare eggs in lots of different ways to understanding your 401k. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been buying books to give to my son who is turning 25. I thought this book had really great advice. Even if you are not a religious person, the topics, the information, the organization of the material is excellent and comprehensive. Very thought provoking and useful ideas and directions. I wish I had read a book like this when I was this age. I personally had a hard time thinking about turning 30 and didn't have anyone or anything to help me sort out my thoughts or understand what I was going through. The ideas and information in this book are very re-asssuring and and hopeful.

Format: Paperback
If you want a good laugh, some interesting, rather way-out advice, and don't expect to reach maturity before you are 30, the Pocket Guide to Adulthood is for you. Aiming to inculcate some useful information through humor, this secular book has quite a hodgepodge of advice: how to cook eggs; don't take Hollywood's advice about first dates; changing a flat tire; an amazing card trick; recipe for a butt-kickin' fruit smoothie; living bling free; urban legends; how to play poker; beware financial procrastination; buying groceries; home maintenance; and taking a good photograph.

Christian humorist, sometime expert on end times, and author of other Pocket Guides, Jason Boyett knows how to entertain with words, often using modern slang (which may be slightly offensive to people not quite up to today). His aim is to help his reader cope with the demands of a more mature life.

I enjoyed reading this little book but was disappointed when subjects failed to mature into the Christian perspective. The advice formulae in the Pocket Guide to Adulthood make it a possible reference volume in topics non-spiritual. It's cutely funny cover and humorous contents bring it into the gag gift category. - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
