About the book

Finally, you’re a proper grown-up! But between the paunch and the mortgage, you’re starting to wonder if this is what you really want. You need midlife crisis survival skills:

  • Stop calling it a midlife crisis and start calling it Teenagehood part 2.
  • Do go to the gym occasionally. Don’t train to join the Olympic weightlifting team.

This mischievous little book will help you enjoy your second youth with tongue-in-cheek advice and cheeky illustrations.
