It might have been fun and games once to have adventures, make catapults, or learn about fossils, but what about now that you are starting to feel a bit fossilized yourself? You just know you are going to suffer a ghastly accident if you attempt to make a tree house. The Deranged Book for Old-timers offers advice on life's more sedate pleasures, from the afternoon snooze to how to twitch curtains properly. With a guide to being a grumpy codger and a Zimmer frame Kama Sutra, this book is full of delightfully dotty things to do. Yes, we are going to grow old, but we are going to make sure we do it disgracefully.

HUMOUR. Richard Benson felt there was a need for a book for the over 60s, which would tackle such burning topics as: pimp your ride - how to turn a motorised wheelchair into a mean racing machine; the geriatric Kama Sutra (is that a bottle of blood pressure pills in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?); quick comebacks for smartarse grandchildren's questions; 101 things you can do with knitting needles; slippers explored and explained.It's another world out there once you start getting older, and this book is full of all the information an old timer needs to make the most of it. Fully illustrated, it's a perfect gift for the older people in your life. It features author interviews, serialisation, feature coverage, reviews and press releases.… (more)
