Here's a book of wit and wisdom that's perfect for graduation or any other -welcome to the adult world- moment. From New York Times bestselling author Deborah Copaken and noted sculptor Randy Polumbo come 26 genuine and funny bits of advice as surprising as they are sensible. From -A is for Anger- through -Z is for Zzzzzzz, - each entry is paired with the authors' street-smart photography of the matching alphabet letter to create a savvy gift. Based on a viral article written by Copaken when her own firstborn left for college, The ABCs of Adulthood is a delightful, worldly riff on learning your ABCs all over again.
