"This is a book that will comfort anyone afraid of growing old. It sheds new light on vital aging."
—Walter F. Mondale, former Vice President, Senator and Ambassador
"As a generation, baby boomers have long been called 'the rat in the python.' Claiming Your Place at the Fire challenges us to be the python, not the rat—and to start by shedding our generational skins. This book is thoughtful, warm, helpful, and above all else, wise."
—Alan M. Webber, Founding Editor, Fast Company
