Overview

You might think I am a psychiatrist, or perhaps a guy Dear Abby, to write a book about what it’s like to be single in your 50s. Nope. I was just single in my 50s. And I needed help. Over time and trial and error of many approaches to dating (and lots of therapy), I began to figure things out. Single-dom in middle-age should not be a death sentence to your sex life or happiness.

Think Steve Carell’s character from Crazy, Stupid Love—when most men find themselves bald, significantly uncool, and suddenly dumped, they don’t have a Ryan Gosling to usher them through this next phase in life. That’s where I come in.

Oh Shit! I’m Over 50 and Single is any man’s—and woman’s—answer to that first morning of waking up alone. It gets better. Only slightly, but it does. From chapters like “To V Or Not to V” to “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” this guide touches on everything from the little blue pill to dating foreign women to sex toys to menopause with a robust selection of personal stories.

"I enjoyed your very authentic honesty and your sense of humor. Having been married three times myself (the third being a keeper), I can empathize with the large group of people you're writing for, both men and women. You're a good storyteller and you offer fair and hard-won advice." -- George

"Brook's tongue in cheek guide to after-50 dating packs a wallop of handy tips for the dating weary and dating wary!" -- Kathryn

"...very entertaining. It is information, funny, realistic, and well written. The book is delightful and the endless examples drive home your point time after time." -- Rich
