    Inhalt:
    "... It's the most entertaining book I've read this year." -- Steve Chapman, Columnist and Editorial Writer, The Chicago Tribune . There are no pretentious pronouncements about public policy or dry conclusions from social science in these pages ... because it is a report from what Frank Zimring calls "my second career, and everybody else's second career, the hard work of becoming an adult in the modern world." . Why is a piranha swimming in your pool a better illustration of how people get overcommitted than a giant man eating shark? (Consult chapter 3.) What should you say when your eight-year-old asks whether you would save him or his sister if the lifeboat only had room for one? (See chapter 5.) Why are professors who hate to teach at their home campus positively lustful when invited to lecture somewhere else? (Chapter 11 explains.) When you finally succeed in giving up cigarettes, how should you feel about those who still smoke? (See chapter 2.) Why do so many of the people lined up to visit world famous landmarks look so unhappy to be there? (Chapter 20 reveals the secret.) . "Frank Zimring has gained renown as a penetrating thinker and a tireless scholar, but 'Memos from Midlife' reveals what his friends have always known: He is also a charming and thought-provoking companion with a devilish sense of humor. Addressing a range of unconventional topics, from 'the arrogance of nostalgia' to Portnoy's real complaint, he provides both illumination and fun, as well as guidance on living wisely and well. It's the most entertaining book I've read this year." -- Steve Chapman, Columnist and Editorial Writer, The Chicago Tribune . A collection of witty and insightful essays in a library-quality hardcover edition: a new addition to the Journeys & Memoirs Series from Quid Pro Books.
