Contents An encounter in the pool -- In defense of denial -- It's not rocket science -- but it is brain surgery -- An encounter in the sky -- Have you lost your mind? -- The vanity of human hopes (reputation) -- The least we can do -- An encounter in the stockroom.
Summary Is life about acquiring things or changing the world? Is the only thing that counts after you're gone the reputation you leave behind? Kinsley uses his own battle with Parkinson's disease to confront these and other questions about aging. At once a fresh assessment of a generation and a frequently funny account of one man's journey toward the finish line, Kinsley provides the beginner's guide you never thought you'd need.
