For this remarkable book and the upcoming companion television program to be aired on PBS, Dr. John Izzo and his colleagues surveyed more than two hundred people ages 60 to 106 on what it means to find happiness.

These people, identified by others as having lived happy lives and as having found purpose and contentment, offer valuable advice on what really matters in life. Presented here by Dr. Izzo, he also gives guidance on how to put this cumulative wisdom into practice. The interviewees, ranging from aboriginal elders to town barbers, from Holocaust survivors to former CEOs, reflect back on their lives to identify the sources of happiness and meaning as well as lessons learned, regrets, and major crossroads. Based on these interviews and Dr. Izzo’s twenty years of experience helping people find more spirit and purpose, the book is an exploration of the secrets to finding contentment and happiness.
