Sample Book Insights:
#1 Americans seem to have an insatiable appetite for advice. We watch televised experts in the hopes of finding solutions to interpersonal problems, financial woes, and sexual dysfunction. We read advice columns and go to seminars. But we are still unhappy.
#2 I turned fifty, and I realized that I wanted to learn how to live better. I wanted to find advice that was based in lived reality, had stood the test of time, and could help me make the most of my life.
#3 I met June Driscoll, a total care resident at a nursing home, who was extremely happy. She explained that she had been raised in a shack with no indoor bathroom, but she was now living in a place where she had a roof over her head, three square meals a day, and nice people who took care of her.
#4 I began to realize that the knowledge of America’s elders can serve as an excellent guide for finding fulfillment when life gets difficult. Their wisdom makes them the true experts on living well, even when times get tough.
