The perfect antidote to all kinds of ageism
on 12 January 2004
I found this book incredibly funny. It was given to me as a present on my sixtieth birthday and it was just the thing to bring a smile to my face. It takes a wry look at all kinds of things that are all too often only seen as 'problems' of getting older and makes you think about them in a different way. I particularly liked the section on planning your own funeral so that you get the most fun out of it! And I enjoyed the fact that the book recognises that just because you've reached a certain age you don't automatically have to start developing a sensible, restrained sense of humour. I've given the book to lots of friends and am pleased to report it's been greeted with almost universal gales of laughter.
