With over 400,000 copies in print, 1,000 Unforgettable Senior Moments is now in two colour and updated and refreshed with more than 20 percent more material. The new anecdotes are more contemporary, featuring recent and current public figures, including singer Nicki Minaj on the BET Viewers' Choice Awards broadcast forgetting what the statuette she had just been handed was for, or the astrophysicists who believe they had discovered proof of alien life, only to discover that it was coming from a microwave used to heat up their lunch. The book remains as funny and clever and absent minded as ever. And as comforting - after all, having a senior moment puts you in the company of Einstein, Lincoln, Oprah, Bowie, and a whole assortment of presidents, poets, philosophers, popes, and Nobel Prize winners.
Tom Friedman is a writer, editor, and George Foster Peabody Award-winning documentary producer. He lives in Northern California.
