Turning 50? Tom Dryden beat you to it three years ago and, to help you find your way (since you will be losing your glasses along with your hearing, muscle tone, sort-term memory and, probably, your job, ) compiled this hilarious sneak preview of what you can expect. At 50, Your Warranty Expires examines topics that will resonate with every Boomer/Geezer, from the drug companies' disturbing use of classic rock and roll songs to hawk pharmaceuticals, to how to best prepare for the revolting medical procedure your doctor will expect you to undergo regularly now that you're 50. You'll find essays about these topics, along with more than four dozen of his award-winning columns examining the increasingly wacky world in which you can expect to live out the few short years you have left.
