Picks and Pans Review: Viagra Nation: the Definitive Guide to Life in the New Sexual Utopia
Dropped on an unsuspecting public in April, Viagra, the little blue pill that can, has done wonders for (a) the love lives of elderly men, (b) Pfizer Corp. stock and (c) the bad-joke industry. Now, in the second wave of Viagra humor, comes a hilariously clever book that addresses issues we thought we'd never have to ponder, like what to do in the case of a Viagra overdose, the effects of Viagra on pets and how to fill your prescription without the whole town knowing.
Eisenberg, an editor for creative development at TIME, and McCall, whose humor has brightened the pages of The New Yorker, took only two months to crank out this amusing gem. Give it to a male friend who's having a significant birthday. (HarperPerennial, $10.95)
Bottom Line: Potent humor
