|Drawing on ancient and contemporary wisdom, as well as
modern research, Richard Leider and David Shapiro provide insightful
ways of thinking and being that help us find meaning and purpose in the
second half of life.
This deeply reflective book uses a safari (referencing a trip the
authors took to Africa in 2006) as a metaphor to show how the second
half of life can be a journey of discovery.
In what may be their most personal book to date, Leider and Shapiro
share dozens of moving stories, from both their own experiences and
those of their safari companions, that offer sometimes surprising
examples of lives well-lived, lives that exemplify the qualities of
authenticity and wholeheartedness that they believe are essential to
finding meaning and purpose in the second half of life.
There are many pathways to putting our whole selves into life, especially during the second half, and in Something to Live For, Leider and Shapiro explore many routes to vital aging.
