Wrinklies' Armchair Companion contains even more stuff that a wrinkly needs to know about the world, and quite a lot that they don't but will find quite interesting anyway! This book has been specially designed to live beside your armchair and provide light relief during advertising breaks or when some awful celebrity talent-show-reality-tv-thing is on, and be a source of interesting quotes and facts for the restless wrinkly.
The contents take the form of a series of short, jokey pieces looking at various aspects of life from the Wrinklies' point of view.
The broad subject areas covered in the book include Wrinkly-style looks at Health, Fashion, Celebrity, Modern Trends, Relationships, Sex, Exercise, Shopping, Technology, Driving, Manners, Trying to Stay Young, Feeling Your Age and so on. Under each of these main headings there are a series of smaller pieces, each covering a different topic and would take a humorous Wrinkly swipe at a different aspect of life.
These pieces are quirky, satirical, imaginative and above all very funny. They are of course specially designed to appeal to the older reader by tapping into their interests, attitudes, opinions, experience, health problems and the like.

"Exactly what the title says . . . fun to pick up for a laugh"
"It is the ideal what I call "dipping into" book, i.e. I can just mark my page and dip into it without losing the narrative. Very good." - Amazon Reviews.
