Wisdom of Our Fathers: Inspiring Life Lessons from Men Who Have Had Time to Learn Them by Joe Kita
Have you ever looked back on an experience and thought, had I only known, it would all have turned out differently? In this inspiring book of life lessons, journalist Joe Kita asked men in their autumn years what they wish they had known 30 years ago. In the process, he gained a harvest of wisdom from the older generation, including their insights on war and peace, marriage and family, working and playing, setbacks and triumphs, insights shared by such men as a world-class doctor, a record-holding sprinter, and even a man who traveled to the South Pole with Admiral Byrd. The result of these conversations is this thoughtful compendium of interviews and quotes on everything from courage to sex to fame.
