Summary
Henry Alford attempts to prove that older people are wiser by interviewing more than seventy people from all races, backgrounds, and education levels and sharing the wisdom he has learned from them
Summary
Part family memoir, part Studs Terkel, How To Live considers some unusual sources--deathbed confessions, late-in-life journals--as well as offering a rich compilation of interviews with the over-70 set to deliver a highly optimistic look at our dying days
