Publishers Description The men are on one side. The women on the other. They're ready -- they're set -- they're off ... Well...maybe not. Seasoned comedy writers Martha Bolton and Brad Dickson take an unconventional, refreshing look at the over-forty race to the Fountain of Youth. Instead of heaping on the pressure to exercise more, eat less, manage your time, and save all your money for retirement, Bolton and Dickson offer a take-it-easy approach to aging with chapters like: If Menopausal Women Ruled the World How to Calculate Your Real Age I Am Woman, Where'd I Go? Desperate Grandmas He Died of What? Gimme a Head with Hair Filled with gentle encouragement and rolling humor, "Race You to the Fountain of Youth" will remind you to focus on the things that truly matter -- contentment, personal growth, faith, and joy. Relevant, real, and always funny, this look at the better half of life doesn't ask you to change one thing about yourself -- except maybe to laugh a bit more and worry a bit less.

save your money Aug 3, 2008
save your money. This is a comedy routine gone bad. Couldn't finish it and I do my best to finish books I start.
Funny and Makes a Great Gift! Feb 20, 2008
Martha and Brad are hilarious in their quests for eternal youth. Coming from two different points of view, it's just a wonderful, funny read. After reading this charmer, I decided to buy it for a couple of my friends hitting "big" birthdays this year. Oh, the lengths we will go to stay "young"! If you buy this book, you won't regret it. You may just find a spring in your step and a smile on your lips...
Another great book from Brad and Martha Feb 11, 2008
Bob Hope and Jay Leno aren't funny alone. For years, they depended on talented, brilliant writers like Brad and Martha to produce their zingers. In the tradition of all great comedy, this book is a side-splitting look at the aging process: Its up's and down's, its effect on both men and women, and how it challenges everyone from ordinary janes and joes to the most visible people in the world. Both funny and highly relateable, if you like to laugh (and who doesn't?) check out this well-done tome.
SIZZLIN' HUMOR Oct 15, 2007
This is a very funny look at health, exercise, fitness, and everything in between. I thought the comparison of the different ways men and women view their appearance was spot on and made me howl with laughter.
Half the book is from the woman's point of view, half from the man's. Both sexes are vain, but in entirely different ways. As I read I found myself one minute nodding and going, "Yep, I agree with that observation, even though I'd never looked at it that way..." and the next minute roaring with laughter at another funny one liner.
I heartily recommend "Race You To The Fountain of Youth". I give it five stars, something I rarely do.
CRACKED ME UP Oct 3, 2007
I bought this expecting it to be a rather wry look at people who make fools of themselves trying to stay young. Forget wry, it made me laugh out loud - repeatedly. I wish the graphics were better and the drawings weren't anything special, but the material crackled.
This book isn't going to change the world. It's just, pure and simple - funny.
