Middle Age Rage... & Other Male Indignities

Fred Shoenberg, Author Holiday House $9.7 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-54373-0
We have here genuinely funny and entertaining comments on the human condition. In spots the humor may be a trifle forced, but they are few indeed. Middle age, according to New York stock broker Shoenberg, is where the buck stops: "". . . you can no longer plead ignorance or innocence. Now you're either stupid or guilty.'' He considers the manifold problems of the middle-aged manvisual, urinary, etc.introducing readers to such techniques as the Alzheimlich Maneuver for dislodging ideas stuck in the mind and difficult to retrieve. The book is chock-a-block with good puns and some clever aphorisms, like: ``Middle age is the one time it's all right if you're not part of the solution because there isn't one.'' Illustrations.
