This deeply reflective book uses a safari, both the actual trip the authors took to Africa in 2006 and safari as metaphor, to show how the second half of life can be a journey of discovery. Drawing upon ancient and contemporary wisdom and modern research, Richard Leider and David Shapiro provide insightful ways of thinking and being that help us find meaning and purpose in life, and offer and strategies and stories that enable us to act courageously and with loving abandon in all that we do. In Part 1: Hunting the Invisible Game, Leider and Shapiro draw on their experiences with members of Tanzania's Hadza tribe to invite readers to return to a time and place where our connections to the natural world and its patterns of time and space are revealed more clearly to us and where we are better able to clarify for ourselves what really matters in our lives. In Part 2: Saving the World, they use the idea of generosity to fellow travellers as a way to explore what it means to shape a life that makes a positive difference to the lives of others. And in chapter 3, Savoring the World, they examine what it really means and takes to be truly fulfilled in the second half of our lives. In what may be their most personal book to date, Leider and Shapiro share dozens of moving stories, from both their own experiences and those of their safari companions, that offer sometimes surprising examples of lives well-lived, lives that exemplify the qualities of authenticity and wholeheartedness that they believe are essential to finding meaning and purpose in the second half of life. There are many pathways to putting our whole selves into life, especially during the second half, and in Something to Live For, Leiider and Shapiro explore many routes to vital aging. The meaning and purpose of life, the authors write, is a life of purpose and meaning. Something to Live For will show readers how to move gracefully and generously into the second half of life, finding fulfillment and new, deeper levels of meaning.
