Time Flies

Time FliesThis was an unusual book written by comedian Bill Cosbyas he struggles with getting older.  I found the book in the clearance rack at Half Priced Books and since I have always liked Cosby.  I remember listening to his albums (that’s right albums) when we were young. 

Written when he was around 50 years old (1987) and taping his hit television show.  I found Time Flies an interesting, but not really funny book about a man growing old.   Maybe that is because I am nearly his age when he wrote the book.  It may hit too close to home.  I found the book to be a little self indulgent and repetitive.  The version that I read had a 23 page introduction that I had to skip after reading a few pages.
