  • For much of our lives we ask: Can we find meaning and happiness in work? When it comes to retirement we ask: Can we find meaning and happiness in retirement? The author asked older Americans to discuss their feelings, fears, and hopes. He spoke with a remarkable group, which included a big-city Mayor, an adventurer, a missionary, a Marine Corps general, athletes, philanthropists, factory workers, nurses, and teachers.

    The resulting book shows rather than tells how to age and live well. It is many things: a series of reflections on growing older; a store of insight and instruction; and a sustained argument for the power of choosing-no matter the circumstance-to live well. From Working to Wisdom is a testament to the richness of each persons life. Book From Working to Wisdom: The Adventures and Dreams of Older Americans On every page, the book challenges its readers to live with authenticity, imagination, and courage, and to begin doing so right now.
