Summary

"Heartfelt and ever-endearing equal parts information and inspiration. This is a book to keep by your bedside and return to often." -- Amy Dickinson, nationally syndicated advice columnist "Ask Amy" After a chance encounter with a remarkable ninety-year-old woman, renowned gerontologist Karl Pillemer decided to find out what older people know about life that the rest of us don't. His quest led him to speak with a thousand Americans over the age of sixty-five-many of whom can remember the Depression and World War II. While some of their tales reaffirmed timeless wisdom, others surprised Pillemer with the unexpected. In 30 Lessons for Living, Pillemer distills their moving stories and hard-won advice. To learn how to live without regret, persevere through hard times, find fulfillment, and age fearlessly and well, there is no one better to ask than the people who have done it themselves.
