You know Sam Neill makes wine, but do you know what word he can't stand when people talk about wine? Sir Ray Avery saves lives in the Third World, but you might be surprised to learn what drives him to distraction at home. You know Kevin Milne fights for a fair go, but you probably don't know why he spends so much time talking to checkout operators. Graeme Dingle is one of our great adventurers, but how did he face the challenge of a stay in hospital? These mysteries and many more are explained in the pages of this book, where Sam, Ray, Kevin, Graeme and 44 other prominent men of a certain age talk about the things that make them grumpy. Some contributions are serious and some light-hearted, some are trivial and some profound, but all are entertaining and thought-provoking. This is the perfect gift for the grumpy old man in your life - or the grumpy young man who needs to know what's in store for him. Includes bonus ebook only contribution from mental health campaigner Max Abbott.
