If you are looking for an inspirational book about gracefully coping with the less than appealing aspects of aging, Andrea Partee's "Aging with Humor and Grace" isn't that tale. Instead Partee provides hilarious insight into the pitfalls of aging in a self-deprecating way to which we can all relate...or will eventually be able to relate. You don't have to be a woman of a certain age to enjoy her witty, and often embarrassing, take on wayward hair growth, bodily functions, pregnancy and child-rearing among dozens of other frighteningly funny topics.
Partee's book is aptly named because she deals with embarrassment, insecurity and tragedy with both humor and grace. Subtly touting the grace that comes from the ability to laugh at oneself, "Aging with Humor and Grace" is a refreshing take on a genre typically focused on how to reverse the clock and make your fifty year old bum look twenty again. Written in a fast-paced, acerbic manner, this book allows women to laugh about the inevitability of aging in an effort to accept what comes. Instead of pretending as though she has found the secret to aging gracefully, Partee simply provides her funny take on the things we are often afraid to talk about in public. When the time comes for you to cope with the hazards of aging, skip the self-help section and pass by the plastic surgeon's guide to aging gracefully and go straight to the humor section where Partee will happily guide you down the road to aging gracefully and hilariously.
