Lives Well Lived celebrates the incredible wit and wisdom of people aged 75 to 100. Encompassing over 3000 years of experience, forty people share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life. These men and women open the vault on their journey into old age through family histories, personal triumph and tragedies, loves and losses – seeing the best and worst of humanity along the way. Their thoughtful perspectives offer a treasure trove of life lessons about perseverance, the human spirit, and staying positive in the midst of the greatest challenges. Their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.
