Drawing on the lives of his Greek friends, as well as philosophers ranging from Epicurus to Sartre, Klein learns to appreciate old age as a distinct and extraordinarily valuable stage of life.

A perfect gift book for the holidays, this little treasure is sure to please longtimefans of Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar and garner new ones, young and old
