Read an Excerpt


When Richard Nixon arrived in Paris for the funeral of French President Georges Pompidou in April 1974, his mind must have been elsewhere. At the airport he declared, “This is a great day for France!”


Sir Thomas Beecham (1879–1961), the founder of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, once ran into a distinguished-looking woman in the lobby of a hotel. Although he could not remember her name, he thought he knew her. When he engaged her in conversation, he vaguely recollected that she had a brother. Hoping for any clue to her identity, he asked her how her brother was and whether he was still working at the same job. “Oh, he’s very well,” said Princess Mary about George VI, “and still king.”

    Bought this for my pops for Father's Day. He's 70 and admits to having his own senior moments quite regularly these days. Haven't seen him laugh this hard in years. This is the perfect gift for someone who can totally relate and laugh at themselves.

    Good Chuckle

    I bought a copy for myself and another for my also menopausal friend. I enjoyed quite a bit. It is great for those who would rather laugh about those senior moments than lament them. We earned those grey hairs, right?
    P.S.I plan to share my copy with my mother.

    Yes, I laughed most of the time while reading this book. Wonderful gift for that friend or relative who needs to find something, anything to laugh about.
