Review:   

I smiled though this book because it contains very direct instructions from a man who has submersed himself into community—he has seen what works and what doesn’t. Too many adults are figuring this stuff out in their thirties and forties because they didn’t have folks in their lives who were straight-shooters with them on the how to’s of social behavior. Teens and adults alike should read this book and use it as a discussion starter in a small group.

This is a deftly written book whose light touch and humorous tone make its serious message easy and quick to understand. Whether we’re young or old, acting like an adult requires knowing and adhering to societal norms, which Mark reminds us are as necessary to individual success as to the success of our civil society. What our parents taught us about appropriate behavior was right, and Mark helps them out by refreshing and updating their advice and reminding all of us about the importance of the social contract and the Golden Rule. And Mark knows what he’s talking about—as a wildly successful university professor for more than two decades, he knows how to deliver information in a way that is listened to and remembered.

THIS BOOK IS AWESOME! I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Mark DuPre’s observations in How to Act Like a Grown-up are invaluable. Mark examines everything from cell phone etiquette to being on time, from divesting to investing. As I read the book, there were moments when I thought, “Yes, get them—finally someone is addressing this!” But then there were those moments when I was challenged to act like a grown-up myself. This is an excellent resource, empowering us to swim upstream in an age of extended adolescence.
