Reviews

"The kind of life-altering perspective we expect from Bateson. . . . She champions the virtues of discontinuity--the growth spurts, the sudden illuminations." --Los Angeles Times

"One of the wisest people on the planet has written one of the finest books on the later years of life." --Jean Houston, author of A Mythic Life "Bateson has used her unique vision and insight to light up the many facets of the 'Further Life, ' giving us a whole fresh way to look at this new frontier of longevity." --Jane Fonda

"An exquisite and wonderfully readable book about composing a further life, one that is entering its richest phase. Whether life begins at thirty, fifty, or eighty, the wisdom she conveys will make each of the reader's days a fuller one." --Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith
