It's true that the world is geared towards the younger generation. After all, that's where the profit is. This book is all about coping with the world as we get older and the world progresses faster than we do.
I'm not sure about the chapters on computers and technology as I have grown up around gadgets but having a mother who is a complete technophobe and a mother in law who embraces technology (or at least gives it a good go), both in their seventies, I can see both sides of the coin.
I particularly sympathise with her frustrations over things like telephone menus and the cloak and dagger approach to personal security by banks when you want to ask them a question. The humour she brings to managing these situations is true to life and very funny.
This is a nice book to read. You can dip into it and don't need to read it from cover to cover. But if you tune into the author's humour you might just find yourself doing that anyway.
I think it is an easy read and in no way complex or too demanding. It would make a nice gift for a senior!
It is a very nicely presented, easy to read, humorous book. The cover is a lovely shiny one, and the typeface is nice and clear and easy on the eyes (especially of the older person - tee hee!) In my opinion it is also a nice gift book.
With Lyla Blake Ward's pedigree one would expect keen witty observations and that is exactly what one gets . From diet to dotage , from electronics to expiration dates , fitness to fatness and many other subjects important to us oldies she tells it as it is.
Written by an American for Americans therefor a few of the gags at first went over my head , but all in all it is fun with a chuckle on nearly every page .
I read it from cover to cover in one go , but would suggest that it is more the sort of book to dip into from time to time .
The witty writing style enlivens the mundane questions so many of us find ourselves asking, bewildered and sometimes entering Victor Meldrew levels of annoyance. The frequent punning can get a little irritating, so it's just as well that each essay is about the same short length and you can drop into the book at any point and find something to laugh at. You'll probably find yourself nodding while you chuckle, because so much of what Lyla says is all too true. An enjoyable book!
