After a chance encounter with an extraordinary ninety-yearold‚ renowned gerontologist Karl Pillemer wondered what older people know about life that the rest of us don’t. His quest led him to interview more than one thousand Americans over the age of sixty-five to seek their counsel on all the big issues: children‚ marriage‚ money‚ career‚ and aging. And he found that he consistently heard advice that pointed to these thirty lessons for living.
“Giving familiar advice a new spin by mining the rich resource of older Americans‚ Pillemer offers a refreshing‚ smart wakeup call about getting your priorities straight and living right.”
