Since the day James Joseph Robinson Jr. was born in 1952, life had gone on swimmingly. His childhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was mostly normal. He attend a prestigious university, married, and had three children. But then he hit his mid-thirties, and suddenly everything went topsy-turvy.

Witty, engaging, and just plain fun, Fighting the Effects of Gravity examines the physical and mental manifestations of middle age. From that one fateful day, when gravity became his nemesis and his beloved jeans could no longer hold their end of the bargain, Robinson shares the joys and sorrows of growing older.

Aching muscles, weight in all the wrong places, memory lapses, and slow reflexes all become a part of Robinson's existence. Different emotions, both positive and negative, vie for room in the limited brain capacity he has left, but one thought rises above it all: we all must confront mortality sooner or later. Robinson accepts his coming old age with grace and a healthy dose of realism. After all, getting old really is better than the alternative.

Robinson delivers an enjoyable commentary on middle age that will resonate with the young, old, and everyone in between
