9780091932084: How Not to Grow Up!: A Coming of Age Memoir. Sort of.

A hilarious story of how a self confessed, perpetual "Big Kid" deals with his greatest fear of getting older and is the perfect book for everyone who, deep down, still thinks they're 18 years old Comedian Richard Herring has a major problem. He’s about to turn 40 and hasn’t seen it coming. He’s not married, doesn’t have a proper job or 2.4 children. But now, finally, it looks as if the world expects him to be a grown up and he’s completely unprepared. As the momentous and terrifying event approaches (his birthday), Richard notices a steep decline in his own behavior. Inexplicably, he begins to behave more childishly by hanging out with 22-year-olds, developing an unhealthy addiction to children's television, and even getting into a ludicrous fight. How Not to Grow Up is the hilarious story of how a self confessed, perpetual "Big Kid" deals with his greatest fear of getting older and is the perfect book for everyone who, deep down, still thinks that they?re 18.
