Well, I just turned 40 this year and I love Dave Barry. So this feels like a good one to read right now. :-)

The book was written in 1990, so it's a little outdated (Barry turned 40 in 90, while I was in college and just turned 40 in '08). So, there's a lot of stuff that didn't quite meld with today's 40--the music, styles, politics, etc.--but there WAS a lot of stuff that still resonates today with turning 40. The chapter on marriage and sex was hilarious, and the chapter on sports was spot-on (especially in talking about youth sports. I could so see my husband and I in that chapter!).
