9780674503816: Triumphs of Experience: The Men of the Harvard Grant Study

At a time when people are living into their tenth decade, the longest longitudinal study of human development ever undertaken offers welcome news for old age: our lives evolve in our later years and often become more fulfilling. Among the surprising findings: people who do well in old age did not necessarily do so well in midlife, and vice versa.

About the Author:

George E. Vaillant is Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

Review:

''Reading like a storybook, the case histories of the individuals provide fascinating insights about how the subjects tackled challenges or succumbed to setbacks. Vaillant superbly explains how these lifelong experiences sculpted these men's final years. Readers can learn more about themselves and what they may expect from life by reading this revelatory and absorbing book.'' --San Francisco Book Review

''This is, arguably, the most important study of the life course ever done. But it is, inarguably, the one most brimming with wisdom. If you are preparing for the last quarter of your life, this is a must read.'' --Martin E. P. Seligman, bestselling author of Authentic Happiness

''Reads like a riveting detective tale, despite revealing the solution at the start . . . The study's superficially simple message is engagingly delivered by its author . . . He has a thought-provoking story to tell about the lifelong significance of loving care.'' --Times Higher Education

''The study offers broadly applicable evidence about how everything from early maturity to grandparents' longevity is likely to affect flourishing throughout life. Like a good doctor, Vaillant has written a book whose conclusions generalize most clearly when they concern physical and mental health.'' --New Republic

''This fascinating book of 'numbers' and 'pictures' is the final summary volume of a longitudinal psychosocial study focused on the optimum health of 268 males from Harvard College classes . . . This book is well worth reading for the discoveries contained in its pages; it has the potential to advance knowledge about adult development.'' --Choice

''In Triumphs of Experience, Vaillant elegantly and persuasively brings us an answer to the question that launched a thousand snake-oil salesmen: what makes for a successful and happy life? . . . [An] engaging work. There are regrettably few studies of this magnitude and even fewer accounts that so ably synthesize the broader insights with the moving parts.'' --Australian

''A fascinating account . . . Vaillant has done a wonderful job summarizing the study, discussing its major findings, and communicating his enthusiasm for every aspect of the project . . . His personal approach to discovery repeatedly draws readers in...Joyful reading about a groundbreaking study and its participants.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''The beauty of the Grant Study is that, as Vaillant emphasizes, it has followed its subjects for nine decades. The big finding is that you can teach an old dog new tricks. The men kept changing all the way through, even in their 80s and 90s.'' --New York Times

''Look beneath the sometimes overwrought psychological framework that Mr. Vaillant layers over the men's stories and you will see an array of strategies for making permanent peace with life's missed opportunities.'' --Wall Street Journal
