Reseña del editor:

After a chance encounter with an extraordinary ninety-year-old woman, renowned gerontologist Karl Pillemer began to wonder what older people know about life that the rest of us don't. His quest led him to interview more than one thousand Americans over the age of sixty-five to seek their counsel on all the big issues- children, marriage, money, career, aging. Their moving stories and uncompromisingly honest answers often surprised him. And he found that he consistently heard advice that pointed to these thirty lessons for living. Here he weaves their personal recollections of difficulties overcome and lives well lived into a timeless book filled with the hard-won advice these older Americans wish someone had given them when they were young.

Biografía del autor:

Karl Pillemer, Ph.D. is the Hazel E. Reed Professor of Human Development at Cornell University and Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College. Since 1993, he has been Director of the Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging, a center devoted to using research to create interventions to improve the quality of life of older persons. For the past two decades, he has conducted a program of research involving staff in nursing homes and other long-term care environments. Projects have included a longitudinal study of relationships between family members of residents with staff in nursing homes, and the first scientific study of abuse of residents in long-term care. He has developed and evaluated a number of nursing home interventions, including model training, mentoring, and career ladder programs. These evidence-based interventions include "Partners in Caregiving," which builds cooperation and communication between nursing home staff and family members, and "Retention Specialist Program," which improves the ability of nursing homes to retain CNAs. He has written many scientific and trade articles on long-term care staffing, and is the author of the book "Solving the Frontline Crisis in Long-Term Care." Beyond the academic and professional community, Dr. Pillemer has created publications for frontline long-term care workers themselves, including the widely-used "The Nursing Assistant's Survival Guide." He is the founding editor of "Nursing Assistant Monthly," an educational newsletter that reaches thousands of nursing assistants nationwide. In addition, he has served as a consultant to long-term care providers, research groups, and trade organizations around the country and in Europe.

Lloyd James (a.k.a. Sean Pratt) has been narrating since 1996 and has recorded over six hundred audiobooks. He is a seven-time winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award and has twice been a finalist for the prestigious Audie Award. His critically acclaimed performances include Elvis in the Morning by William F. Buckley Jr. and Searching for Bobby Fischer by Fred Waitzkin, among others.
