Overview

What is it like to grow old? Only the elderly can tell you. John Doyle is 88.
What is it like to live in an elderly retirement community. Only one who lives there can tell you. John Doyle does.
These are questions of great interest to some 37 million people in the U.S. over 75 and many times that number of children and grandchildren. The latter may be stunned to learn what kind of life their beloved parents and grandparents are experiencing.
These questions are answered in "Tales from the Tail End," which factually and often humorously describes the aging process in a retirement community and considers how to deal with it gracefully.
The author's former pastor, Father Jim Hawker, says this about the book, "I just couldn't put it down. John Doyle shares a memorable story replete with fascinating experiences and personal insights. His humor and pathos are truly infectious. The message of "'Tales from the Tail End'" is both intriguing and inspiring as the author invites the reader to come along and catch the spirit of the ups and downs of the aging process."

I believe that this book is more like one man's angry battle against the world of the inept who surround him. With the exception of a very select few, virtually no one escapes the wrath of his judgement. Lucky are the few that can rise out of the pool of their own filth - inspired to do so only by his un-yielding, relentless pursuit of reclaiming the satisfaction that is rightfully his (and everyone else's).
