    SECTION 4: BOOMERS RELATED BOOK REVIEWS!
    PRESS RELEASE

    MMS No Laughing Matter

         MMS - Male Menopause Syndromes is descripbed in a new book titled 
         "MMS - No laughing Matter" by author and sufferer - Dave Block.
    
         MMM is actually a male verson of the "change" that until 
         now has been associated with the opposite sex.
    
         Millions of middle-aged men have the syndromes of this 
         curious affliction which included attraction to younger
         women, older cars and bigger boats, day-dreaming, seeking
         new careers, fixation with remote controls and much more.
    
         This new book hilarous documents in full color, an 
         explanation (or excuse) for the middle-aged men's behaviour 
         that has previously been dismissed of as plain weird.
    
         MMS is required reading for middle-aged men and certainly
         for anyone that try to figure him out.
    
         It's Facts, It's Fiction, It's Funny.
