30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest American, by Karl Pillemer, Ph.D, Plume, The Penguin Group, 375 Hudson Street, New York, New York, 2012. As we age our knowledge and experience creeps up on us almost unconsciously. We may be surprised when others ask our opinions and actually listen to the answers. Karl Pillemer not only asks and listens to the elders in our society, he also sifts through their responses to find commonalities and “Lessons”.
This book is valuable for young people seeking life lessons for direction as well as for older people sifting through their own life lessons wondering how they fit in and what changes they could make before the end of their time.
