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

accepts his coming old age with grace and a healthy dose of
realism. After all, getting old really is better than the
Robinson delivers an enjoyable commentary on middle age that
will resonate with the young, old, and everyone in between
