9780007306138: How Not to Act Old: 185 Ways to Pass for Cool, Sound, Wicked, or at Least Not Totally Lame

Still want to be cool but are afraid you no longer know how? Be not afraid – old is the new young!

You dye your hair, you happily order the weekly shop online, you're planning a trip to South America and even know who won Big Brother this year. But last week you also told your kids that G4 are 'sick' and were promptly silenced by looks of utter scorn.

Stay away from language that has no right to come out of lips that are more than 45 years old...make that 35...no, make that 14. No-one over the age of 16 uses 'sick' to describe anything, you don't 'hook-up' if you're not a teenager and you know you're over 40 if you have ever told another adult to carry an umbrella 'because the weather looks iffy'. If you think you're too old to act young or too past it to join Facebook, think again. This book is the essential guide to how not to act old - and how not to embarrass yourself whilst doing it!

With 150 different 'ways' how not to act old, this book covers everything you need to know about being young and how to recognise your limits when trying out your new, younger, attitude to life. Covering many areas including slang speech, relationships, parenting, fashion and technology and written with wit, style and humour, this book is sure to be a source of both amusement and comfort to people of a certain age everywhere.

Remember - old is just Young 2.0!

Review:

“I’m addicted to Pam Satran’s How Not To Act Old and all my friends are too!It’s a must read for anyone who wants to communicate with today’s youth, or just seem youthful!I actually don’t know where I’d be without this book. I can’t thank Pam enough for making me give up wearing sunglasses over my bifocals ... and for making me laugh out loud”.

Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries series and Size 12 Is Not Fat.

“Shimmers with a multitude of wise and hilarious insights on the pitfalls of acting your age. Don’t just read it, memorize it. And buy it for everyone you love. It’s original and brilliant!”

Dorothea Benton Frank, New York Times bestselling author
