Overall Review:  

This book is a cute compilation of quips and jokes about growing old such as “At my age, happy hour is nap time.” and “Funny, I don’t remember being absentminded”.  Having read many books by this author, I was expecting something slightly different when I ordered this book.  However, it is cute and would make a perfect gift for someone approaching a “milestone” birthday or anyone who appreciates a humorous look at aging.
