Hey, I'm Andy Boyle

Writer. Web developer. Person.

(I'm the one in the hat.)

Do You Like Jokes and Life Advice?

Then you should buy my book.

It's called "Adulthood for Beginners: All the Life Secrets Nobody Bothered to Tell You." It's the funny life survival guide you didn't know you needed. It features advice on dating, friendships, jobs, happiness and generally not looking like a dumbass.

Basically, I was an idiot so you don't have to be.

It's being released on May 2nd through Penguin Random House. So, yeah, it's like a real book. Pre-order your copy today!

You can also order it from these other fine retailers below:

Wanna order a bunch? The way pre-sales work, if you order 20, it counts as one bulk order, which looks as if only one copy was purchased. (Publishing!) So if you plan on ordering more than one, you should go here, or order multiple copies, one at a time, from the fine retailers listed above.
