Review:

Is Dave Barry going mature on us? Well, no. But in Dave Barry Turns 40, he does do some thinking out loud about the aging process, aiming his thoughts at his "career-pursuing, insurance-buying, fitness-observing, Lamaze-class-taking, breast-feeding, data-processing, mortgage-paying, Parents'-Night-attending, business-card-exchanging, compact-disc-owning, tooth-flossing" contemporaries. Funny and true-to-life, especially if you were born before 1957.

From the Publisher:

This October you will be treated to DAVE BARRY TURNS 50 -- but once upon a time Dave turned 40. Barry captures his historic arrival at mid-life with all the wit and irreverence that makes him a New York Times bestseller. When I started reading this book I had never read Dave Barry before. I couldn't put it down. I couldn't stop laughing. This is everything you wanted to know and a few things you didn't about mid-life including -- "planning your mid-life crisis," "the joys of geezerhood" and for the "athlete" over 40, "God had a reason for creating a barcalounger." If you are about to turn 40, and even if you are not, this is Dave Barry at his laugh-out-loud funniest.
