Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Growing old has never felt better than with Shank’s uproarious new memoir, Get a Load of This 90-Year Old.

Having witnessed some of history’s most tumultuous decades, including the roaring twenties and World War II, Shank offers readers a unique—and hilarious—perspective on all things American.

Witness the years fly by, from Calvin Coolidge to Harry Truman and beyond. Through it all, including a successful (yet boozy) stint in advertising and marriage to the most popular girl on his college campus, Shank keeps the wicked sense of humor that has sustained him all these years.

Shank even reminisces about a few of his brief brushes with fame, such as the time he went golfing with some buddies in Oklahoma. There, they found themselves alone on the course with none other than Bob Hope—who promptly left them in stitches as he regaled them with wildly entertaining personal anecdotes.

Readers will laugh until they cry as Shank reminisces about his life, whether as a young professional man enjoying midday martinis or as a ninety-year-old senior citizen trying desperately to beat a 102-year-old to a seat at the doctor’s office. So be sure and Get a Load of This 90-year Old today!
