Press Reviews

'Wry, amusing and occasionally poignant ... The serious messages of age are interspersed with Dr Simpson's collection of witty stories, which can inspire a cheery moment, even on the darkest days and would make an ideal gift for either young or old.'

- Life and Work

'A glorious collection of pieces relating to getting older, compiled by the author of several previous books that have made me laugh ... A perfect "stocking filler" for Christmas, or excellent as a gift at any time and not just for the elderly.'

- Mary Bartholomew, The GoodBookstall

'As well as funny stories, there are many insights in the book. There is wise advice about how to approach ageing, and how to live with the limitations that it can bring ... This wee book, then, is a treasure, full of funny and wise things.'

- Ron Ferguson, Press and Journal
