Twenty years later, Friedman returned to the subject with The Slightly Older Guy, finding his quarry no longer alone and not so young anymore, but just as funny. Now these classic humor books are available together for the first time in a single paperback edition from Grove Press. With a new afterword about The Considerably Older Guy, this edition deals with such topics as divorce and grandchildren. Offering advice on exercise (walk, dont run) and insomnia (read Solzhenitsyn), Friedman took the pulse of the aging American male -- and found him still in need of some good satire.
