These are the steps I wish I'd had before I grew up. Wait-What am I talking about? These are steps I will start using today! Kelly Williams Brown writes as charmingly and hysterically as she does helpfully. Get this book and grow up!

Twentysomethings who are looking for a silver bullet will find it here in the form of 468 silver pellets. Without a doubt, one (or a hundred) of these pellets will change your relationship or your career or your mind or your potatoes, all of which matter in adulthood. Kelly Williams Brown is my kind of twentysomething.
-Meg Jay, PhD, author of The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of Them Now
Kelly Williams Brown is wise beyond her years, which is great news for those of us who are immature beyond ours. Her advice is brilliant, warm, funny, and USEFUL, much like the lady who wrote it. I'd love to have her over for tea but I don't want her to see my apartment.

"Fun, chatty, and surprisingly informative.... perfect for the wayward 20-something, or 30-something, or..."

"This hilarious and super-relatable how-to guide for acting like an adult ... is full of aha moments."
Kelly Williams Brown, author of "Adulting," is the voice of her generation. Unfortunately, that voice is telling her she should make a soufflé and take her LSATs. She shouldn't listen to the voice, and neither should you. Kelly Williams Brown should be writing: period. Anything else is just robbery. "Adulting" is hilarious and filled with keen insight, a terrific dance down the road of everyday insecurity.
-- Dana Haynes, author of ICE COLD KILL, CRASHERS and BREAKING POINT
Adulting is a must-read for anyone in their twenties! Author Kelly Williams Brown has penned an incredibly helpful how-to geared toward twenty-somethings who may be grown up but don't always feel like it. ... Adulting is incredibly funny and a pure joy to read.
-- Wit and Sin

But was the advice worth it? I think so. Sure, you might be too far along the pike to benefit from some of it. Some of it is complete common sense (i.e. buy toilet paper in bulk -- the use/age graph on this is priceless!). But it never hurts to read it or hear it aloud at least one time. And some of the things she covered are issues I still have trouble with and I'm easily old enough to be the author's mom.
I will indeed give this book to my daughter and hope she actually finds time to read it and absorb some of the great stuff although I hope she doesn't drink as much or have as much unmarried sex as the book allows. But if she does decide to start drinking and screwing around, the book offers some pretty good guidelines on how to do such in an adult fashion. Still I hope she spends more time on the chapter about financial responsibility. Great job, Kelly. Now if you can hurry up and turn 60, I need a book on Senioring.
