A refreshingly candid and wickedly funny look at life's second half from Everybody Loves Raymond TV sitcom star and comic Brad Garrett.
In this no-holds-barred audiobook of comedic and personal essays, Brad Garrett waxes hilarious - and irreverently honest - about the gaffes, the challenges, and ultimately the joys of middle age as he advises us on how to best approach the dreaded second half of life.
Ranging in topics from genetics to genitals, weight to women, and dating to diarrhea, Brad leaves no stone unturned in this laugh-out-loud look at getting older. With pieces such as "No Scales in Heaven", in which Brad points out the essential pointlessness of overthinking diet and exercise, and "Celebrating Your E.D. (Erectile Dysfunction) During Your Midlife Crisis", the star comedian encourages you to forget the overwhelming concerns that accompany middle age and to welcome the laughs - even if you have a 50-50 chance of throwing your back out in doing so.
Penned in Brad's signature witty, conversational, no-nonsense style that has cemented his status as an icon in the comedy industry, this autobiographical book will teach you the most important thing: that no matter what, we're all in this together. So embrace it.

I've always loved Brad from his days on Everybody Love Raymond. I didn't know he did stand up until this book, but I will be on the lookout for more. It's such a cliche to say that I've never laughed so hard, but it's true. I had to stop listening so many times, the book must have lasted twice as long. This book made me realise how tame most comedy really is these days. I thoroughly recommend this book and hope your sides hurt as much as mine.
