An award-winning author attempts to become a nationally competitive tennis player—at the age of sixty—in this “soulful meditation on aging, companionship, and the power of self-improvement” (The Wall Street Journal). Being a man or a woman in your early sixties is different than it was a generation or two ago, at least for the more fortunate of us. We aren’t old…yet. But we sense it coming: Careers are winding down, kids are gone, parents are dying (friends, too), and our bodies are no longer youthful or even middle-aged. Learning to play tennis in your fifties is no small feat, but becoming a serious, competitive tennis player at the age of sixty is a whole other matter. It requires training the body to defy age, and to methodically build one’s game—the strokework, footwork, strategy, and mental toughness. Gerry Mazorati had the strong desire to lead an examined physical life, to push his body into the “encore” of middle age. In Late to the Ball Mazorati writes vividly about his difficulties, frustrations, and triumphs of becoming a seriously good tennis player. He takes on his quest with complete vigor and absolute determination to see it through, providing a rich, vicarious experience, involving the science of aging, his existential battle with time, and the beautiful, mysterious game of tennis. “Enjoyable…crisp and clean” (Publishers Weekly), Late to the Ball is also captivating evidence that the rest of the Baby Boomer generation, now between middle age and old age, can find their own quest and do the same.

The year 1966 was when many TV viewers all over America discovered the wonders of "in living color." The 1966-1967 primetime television lineup was remarkable not only for the legendary shows that aired, but also because it was the first season in which every show on primetime, across all three major networks, was broadcast entirely in color. Celebrating this iconic year of television, this book covers every scripted episodic show that aired on the ABC, CBS, and NBC networks during the 1966-1967 season in primetime. It includes longtime favorites such as Batman, Bonanza, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, and The Lucy Show and the notable shows that premiered that year such as Star Trek, The Monkees, Green Hornet, Mission: Impossible, It's About Time, and the color revival of Dragnet. Organized by genre, each entry examines a show from conception to cancelation (and sometimes beyond), ratings, critical and fan reactions, and the show's use of color.
