About the book

For years, you wanted to be treated like a proper adult, but now you are on a downhill slippery slope to a grand old age and you can’t seem to find the brakes. You need survival skills:

  • Don’t compare yourself to the Botox-happy celebrities who are your age – wear your lines with pride.
  • Do remember where your glasses/keys are to avoid raised eyebrows from family members.

This mischievous little book will help you enjoy your latter years with tongue-in-cheek advice and cheeky illustrations.
