a cheering read for anyone who has turned...
on 21 January 2015
I bought this soon after a significant birthday made me start reflecting on my age, somewhat mournfully. It soon cheered me up! It's a real tonic for anyone wondering whether it may be all downhill from now on. The book is full of wisdom, even if many of the observations are anything but original, and it is also full of humour and optimism. It's a quick and lively read and I may turn to it again if I get depressed.
Unfortunately the book is rather spoiled by a serious lack of editing: there are many errors of grammar and punctuation and clumsy formulations. It would be well worth revising thoroughly, as this detracts from the impact of the whole.
