This is actually not a work of fiction but personal experiences from the author's life.
The idea behind this book is that Mike feels he is not a proper adult although he has reached the "adult" age of 35 and has child no.2 on the way.
He writes a list of nearly 1,300 "grown up" items he plans to do by his 36th birthday, and the book is basically about doing these items.
Some of the items are very small (Item 141: Re-hang picture that fell down) but some require more work (item 963: Read war and peace) and others are of course on a more personal nature (make will, spend more time with parents etc.)
The book is written with a great amount of humor and has quite a few wise and interesting ideas. One outcome of this book for me was to write a very modest to do list of my own (item 56: write a review for "the to do list" - just kidding).
