What People are Saying About This

Joseph Kellard

"Growing Up" implies rejecting ideas and behaviors which may be appropriate for children, but not for adults. Adulthood, ideally, consists of independence, rationality and productive happiness. [the] book provides specific ideas on how to fully reach adulthood--both as an individual and as a society.

Russ Shurts

Simply Awesome! How simple the solutions are and how wonderful life would be if everyone who counts in this society would read and understand your book.
