Reviews

In the same light vein as in Fatherhood , Cosby, TV star who has just turned 50, tackles the universal experience of aging. Once an athlete, Cosby describes his own sense of deterioration, both physical and mentalthe growing stiffness, encroaching flab and sag, the memory lapsesas well as the amazing youth of people in charge now. The book is hilarious and wise and tolerant (``The reason we must be tolerant with older people who have lost some of their hearing or vision or mind is simply that we will almost certainly have such loss if we enjoy the good fortune to live long enough to fall apart''). Rarely has the subject of growing older been explored so wittily. For public libraries. Literary Guild selection.. Priscilla E. Pratt, formerly with York Coll. Lib., CUNY

"Exactly what his legions of admirers treasure.... like Fatherhood, this sequel is 'Cos' at his most irresistible."--Newsweek "As funny as he is.... buy this for a friend who's about to stumble over a milestone.... buy it for yourself."--Boston Herald "A wry look at the subject of aging.... guaranteed to land on the bestseller lists."--Newsday "Wit for all ages."--Chicago Tribune "Witty in a way that makes one laugh aloud on public transportation."--Houston Post

Cosby reached a wide audience with Fatherhood, a memoir of his experiences raising children. Now, at age 50, he here considers the inevitabilities of the aging process, writing with the same winning mixture of common sense and humor that marked the earlier book. He confronts the shibboleths of the geriatric industry in the United States, addressing them with wise witticisms in the mini crises of his own aginghis first gray hair, his first trifocals, etc. As psychiatrist Poussaint points out in his instructive introduction, Cosby ``serves as our puckish and empathetic guide to humorous journeys through the fitful stages of life.'' The inimitable Cosby style of personalized, self-deprecating humor resonates for all. 1,750,000 first printing; major ad/promo. (September 16)
