Riassunto: Even today, veneration of older people continues to be the norm among ethnic groups and all other societies be they first, second, or third world. Our country seems to be unique, even among other highly industrialized countries, in viewing the elderly as a social problem.Forget about stereotypes regarding senior citizens-seniors are far from obsolete. They are one of our country's greatest and most valuable resources, and we need to reevaluate our attitude toward them.Staying in the Game profiles twenty American seniors, all age seventy-five or older, and discusses how they've managed to live happy, productive, and fulfilling lives. Even with different social, educational, and financial backgrounds, all of them remain very active and continue to pursue their goals.By sharing their life stories-from childhood to the present-these senior citizens offer invaluable lessons on how they overcame barriers, developed philosophies on life, and kept on going despite adversity. Author David Gotlieb, a senior citizen himself, proves that it's entirely possible to understand senior citizens in America, thus improving our perception and appreciation of this wise generation.
L'autore: David Gotlieb received a PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago. He has taught at Harvard, Dartmouth, and served as dean at the College of Social Sciences, University of Houston. He lives in The Woodlands, Texas, with his wife, Brenda.
