“For a good, solid learning experience with a smattering of rich humor, I suggest you take hold of Mark DuPre s How to Act Like a Grown-up. You won t want to put it down until you are finished. I am still smiling.”
“Just before reading How to Act Like a Grown-up I had just finished reading an autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, a man who was known for his common-sense proverbs and his everyday wisdom. I feel that Mark s book delivers the same theme. Mark addresses everyday situations with an incredibly clear common-sense approach. It is refreshing, humorous, and practical. I believe that it will serve to help and encourage many of us to put on our adult clothes and stand up as adults. Thank you, Mark, for opening our eyes to the obvious. Compliance to these principles will make the world a better place to live.”
“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.”
