How Not to Grow Up Read ✓ 106 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 theyre 1. The crux of the book isn t compelling enough as a premise to sustain itself so the book dawdles off into little funny tangents and routines every so often Which would be fine except it means when he decides to get maudlin or serious the momentum isn t there to care as much as you d hope too Also some of the conversations he writes with people particularly Emma sound so excruciatingly false due to the otherwise chatty tone of the book that it s distracting It reads like an over stretched stand up show Overall a fun read but you d be better off buying one of his stand up DVD s as that s a format he suits far better

How Not to Grow Up Read ✓ 106 Have a proper job or 24 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 childishly by hanging out with 22. As the comedian Richard Herring approached his fortieth birthday he found himself behaving in ways that were increasingly childish His life was a non stop round of gigging drinking getting up late and then spending most of the day sitting around in his pants eating sweets and playing video games His search for a relationship was becoming increasingly desperate alternating between hopeless romanticism and a series of ill advised temporary flings He didn t even know if he really wanted a long term relationship when he couldn t even commit to a bag for life from the supermarket The only people that seemed to understand him on his level were small children perhaps recognising that he was a child like them rather than an adultRichard Herring has chronicled a pivotal year in his life in startling and sometimes confessional detail He slowly starts to understand his urge to self destruct and gains an insight into how to strike a balance between adult responsibilities and the need to maintain a childlike view of the absurdities of life Without giving too much away he does turn out to be a bit of an old softy in the end and not just around the middle from a diet of fried chicken and flumps If you have listened to the hundred and something podcasts that he has produced over the last two years or read any of his daily blogs then this book is an essential directors commentary to accompany everything else If you are not a die hard fan then this might just turn you into oneHighly recommended
