The cringe-inducing misadventures of an immature man in an adult world 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 is completely unprepared for it. 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—hanging out with 22-year-olds, developing an unhealthy addiction to kids' television shows, and even getting into a ludicrous fight. This is the hilarious story of how a self-confessed perpetual Big Kid deals with his greatest fear—getting older—and is the perfect book for everyone who, deep down, still thinks that they’re 18.
