Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
According to comedian Bob Hope, you've reached middle age when your age begins to show around your middle. Minnesota-based Dorsen suggests that middle age is a slippery slope where men are often caught between their aging parents on the one hand and the acting-out of their own adolescents on the other, "with the siren song of a midlife crisis on the horizon." However, his advice on the physical and psychological changes that the over-40 male experiences is often lost in flat humor meant to be "old chum" but often sounding patronizing. There is definitely a market for a health adviser addressing the aging male, but choosing one is a personal matter, and readers will do better with the style, delivery, and content of Harvey Simon's Staying Well (LJ 8/92).James Swanton, Harlem Hosp. Lib., New York
