Published by Brandon Peele
Are You an Adult?

Adulthood 2.0 is a book that helps you answer this question, while illuminating our current crisis of adulthood and providing a new definition and a way forward. This book is for anyone interested in their own development, the future of man or merely keen on greater fulfillment and success in life.

The Adulthood Crisis: http://www.slideshare.net/bpeele/the-adulthood-crisis

“65 percent of males had reached adulthood by the age of 30 in 1960 and only 31 percent had reached adulthood in 2000." - American Sociological Association 8/22/2004

"For women, the number was 77 percent in 1960 and 46 percent in 2000.” - ASA 8/22/2004

Moreover, legal, social and biological definitions of adulthood across geography and time are so contradictory and internally inconsistent as to be rendered useless.

We need a modern, cross-cultural definition of adulthood.

About the author:
Brandon Peele teaches at UC Berkeley and has a contributed to numerous self-awareness journals, including Trans4mind and Self-growth. Brandon is also an accomplished business person, having worked for a variety of technology and media startups. He has an MBA from Columbia Business School.
