Ranging in topics from genetics to genitals, weight to women, and dating to diarrhea, Brad leaves no stone unturned in this laugh-out-loud look at getting older. With pieces such as “No Scales in Heaven,” in which Brad points out the essential pointlessness of overthinking diet and exercise, and “Celebrating Your E.D. (erectile dysfunction) During Your Mid-Life Crisis,” the star comedian encourages you to forget the overwhelming concerns that accompany middle age and to welcome the laughs—even if you have a fifty-fifty chance of throwing your back out in doing so. Penned in Brad’s signature witty, conversational, no-nonsense style that has cemented his status as an icon in the comedy industry, this autobiographical book will teach you the most important thing: that, no matter what, we’re all in this together. So embrace it.

shortDescription
A refreshingly candid and wickedly funny look at life’s second half from Everybody Loves Raymond TV sitcom star and comic Brad Garrett.
In this no-holds-barred book of comedic and personal essays, Brad Garrett waxes hilarious—and irreverently honest—about the gaffes, challenges, and ultimately the joys of middle age as he advises us on how to best approach the dreaded “second half” of life.

        Comedian Garrett delves into the ugly side of passing one's prime with an exquisite collection of essays capturing the strange things that happen after life's midway point. He gives the lowdown on growing old, using no shortage of euphemisms to describe the effects that age has on the human mind and body. Garrett proves a great narrator, with a deep and raspy voice that is hypnotic enough to keep listeners hooked to the end. He keeps a steady narrative rhythm, but also superbly inflects his voice for the jokes, asides, and turns in any given essay. This sardonic take on the second half of life will prove comforting, thought provoking, and amusing to listeners. A Gallery hardcover.
