    Story
    (8)

    Mesmerized, at times unnerved, by his 97-year-old father's nearly superhuman vitality and optimism, David Shields undertakes an investigation of the human physical condition. The result is this exhilarating book - both a personal meditation on mortality and an exploration of flesh-and-blood existence from crib to oblivion. It's an exploration that paradoxically prompts a renewed and profound appreciation of life.

    Mark says: "Too much of the author's uninteresting story"
    "If you're looking for Humour, don't get this book!"
    Overall

    For what I thought would be a humourous book, this turned out to not only be totally devoid of humour, but a somewhat graphic
    (and depressing) discussion of the relentless progression of physiological issues we can expect as we age. As a member of the baby boomers, this is the LAST thing I want to hear!
