About the Book


Book Title: Adult-o-Nomics

Author Name: Tez Brooks

Genre: Non-fiction (Self-Help)

Release Date: April 30, 2024

Launching out and making your way in life can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be.

One study revealed that over fifty percent of young adults boomeranged home in the first five years. Often, this is caused by underestimating how many curveballs life throws. You may not want to return home, and helicopter parents don’t help as they sympathetically offer to cushion you in the name of “setting you up for success.” But you know there’s nothing more rewarding than making it on your own.

Mom and Dad couldn’t teach you everything. Your peers can’t offer the wisdom of experience. Even mentors don’t often know what you need guidance for. You need preventive counsel; information obtained before a crisis hits. Well, you found it! Within these pages is experience and know-how collected from famous personalities and others who’ve forged the path ahead of you; from all different ages and walks of life.

This mix of ancient wisdom (adapted from God’s Word) and modern advice from contemporaries will place you ahead of the curve as you increase in know-how and understanding for more effective adulting.

Adult-o-Nomics is a gift book to yourself or others. It’s a collection of 500 short quotes, scriptures, and suggestions for those leaving home for the first time. Topics cover everything from practical housekeeping, automotive maintenance, and career advice, to romance and spiritual living.

If consumers in the target market read Adult-o-Nomics, they will:

  • Discover practical tips for becoming independent.
  • Handle setbacks and trials with know-how, confidence and courage.
  • Understand societal norms for more effective life skills.
  • Learn how to walk closer to God.

Because the book will:

  • Inspire readers to step out and take risks.
  • Encourage young adults to mature and grow a thick skin.
  • Produce a growing dependence on God rather than others.
  • Offer peace in the midst of turmoil and stress.

Book Excerpt

Tip #12

Save thousands of dollars, floss your teeth.

Tip #13

Never allow friends or family to sit in with you during a job interview. Employers want secure applicants.


Tip #14

“Remember that there is an enemy…and he’s going to use whatever method he can to try to divide us.”

— Steven Curtis Chapman, singer/songwriter


Tip #15

Sit up straight. Good posture attracts success.


Tip #16

Chew with your mouth closed and talk with it open.

Tip #17

Explore a museum. Go to a parade. Watch the sunrise. Jump in a pool fully clothed.


Tip #18

That sexy tan you work on each summer turns into skin cancer when you’re forty. Use sunscreen now.


Tip #19

Fighting a traffic citation is risky. If the cop shows up to court, you will more than likely lose your case and end up paying all court costs.


Tip #20

Go to church faithfully. Let nothing distract you from being there each week. (See Hebrews 10:25)


Tip #21

Yikes! According to James 4:4, tight friendship with the world and its values means you are choosing to be God’s enemy.
