Publisher Comments:

A wickedly humorous look at this many rite of passage.

There are certain times in a guy's life when everything changes — and turning 30 is a huge milestone. No more excuses: you are, or should be, a full-fledged adult. To make things a little smoother on this momentous occasion, Esquire lets you know exactly what a man should no longer be doing. Just in case you can't figure it out for yourself. Here are just a few of the never-to-be-forgotten, wildly funny rules about the old habits you simply have to leave behind:

  • See any movie with elves, mutants, wookies, or other non-human characters on opening night
  • Figure out which dirty words are spelled by phone number
  • High five in a business situation
  • Travel to attend a Phish concert
  • Have any furniture that involves cinder blocks
  • Google ex-girlfriends

Synopsis:

One of Esquire's most popular annual features, Things a Man Should Never Do Past 30, has now become a full-fledged book. A.J. Jacobs, popular author and Esquire editor-at-large, and Dave Katz take a wickedly humorous look at this magical rite of passage, and reveal exactly why no guy should "high five in a business situation" or "experiment with facial hair" anymore.

How about when your 30, it's not a good idea to live in an apartment inside your mother's house and acting like you have your own crib, because it's the same as still living at home with your mom.
