Be an Outrageous Older Man: Action Guide for Men 50 and Beyond
In this highly informative book -- The perfect gift for Father's Day & Birthdays columnist Bard Lindeman writes an open letter to men who are growing older and feel the pressure.Lindeman believes that Americans do not understand the aging process. Rather than embracing this stage of their lives, they kneel at the altar of youth to worship the ideals of perpetually abundant hair and unwrinkled skin. Why waste your time, Lindeman asks, when you can be an outrageous older man?With warmth and wit, Lindeman covers the areas of most concern to men -- and the women who love them: health, work (is retirement a good idea or a failed experiment?), loneliness, sexuality (You bet there's sex after 50 ), meeting new people, and advocacy. Who else will stand up for the rights of older people if we don't? he asks.Be an Outrageous Older Man is based on Lindeman's personal experiences, the research behind fourteen years of his nationally syndicated, twice-weekly newspaper column In Your Prime, and the hundreds of letters and cards he's received from his readers. He knows, because his readers have told him, that older men are incredible grandfathers, and that volunteering makes them feel good.He also knows older men believe in the benefits of regular exercise but fear losing their hair, and having problems with their prostate.Be an Outrageous Older Man is not a how-to-live-longer book. Like Be an Outrageous Older Woman by Dr. Ruth Jacobs (also published by KIT), this volume tells men how to feel better about aging. A lifelong journalist, Lindeman says Aging is, by far, the best story I've ever covered. It's always news because information on the topic constantly changes and evolves.Americans are just beginning to see the profound impact of aging on our society.
