“Dr. Everett Piper’s book Not a Day Care had the impact of a neutron bomb. In his groundbreaking sequel, Grow Up!, Dr. Piper continues the prophetic message that all need to hear but few have had the courage to say. Thank God someone tells the truth without apology!” —Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas



It’s April 2021, and the woke police have cancelled Dr. Seuss, Mr. Potato Head, and the beloved host of The Bachelor, Chris Harrison. Grown children are pouring out of the glorified day care known as college and entering the corporate world, and people of all ages are facing the consequences. Full of infantile demands and expectations, these “woke” grown children are
ready to blacklist any harmless thing that they deem “cancellable.” Even worse, this spring they will be hearing leftist commencement speakers preaching about how to live a “woke” adult life instead of a responsible one. As a former university president, Dr. Everett Piper knows a thing or two about the ideas that motivate the younger generation. Having experienced the snowflake mob’s rage himself, he understands the threat that these young people pose to the rest of society. Filled with wisdom and learning, Grow Up!: Life Isn’t Safe, but It’s Good is the commencement speech on how to succeed in adulthood that all graduates need to hear, but won’t.
