Many of us assume that the more successful we are, the less susceptible we become to the sense of professional and social irrelevance that often accompanies aging. But the truth is, the greater our achievements and our attachment to them, the more we notice our decline, and the more painful it is when it occurs.
What can we do, starting now, to make our older years a time of happiness, purpose, and yes, success?
At the height of his career at the age of 50, Arthur Brooks embarked on a seven-year journey to discover how to transform his future from one of disappointment over waning abilities into an opportunity for progress. From Strength to Strength is the result, a practical roadmap for the rest of your life.
Drawing on social science, philosophy, biography, theology, and eastern wisdom, as well as dozens of interviews with everyday men and women, Brooks shows us that true life success is well within our reach. By refocusing on certain priorities and habits that anyone can learn, such as deep wisdom, detachment from empty rewards, connection and service to others, and spiritual progress, we can set ourselves up for increased happiness.
Read this book and you, too, can go from strength to strength.
“From Strength to Strength is a wise and inspiring guide to reimagining the rest of your life. If you’re a striver tired of striving, this remarkable book is for you.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive, When, and A Whole New Mind
“Brooks appears to have a clear strategy here: first he horrifies you, then he bucks you up. An alternate title for this book could be The Good News About Your Inevitable Decline. Most of us strivers believe we can keep racing until we run out of road. Arthur is trying to save us pain and maximize our contributions to the species. Every ambitious person should read this.” —Dan Harris, author and former ABC News anchor
“Arthur Brooks is one of my very favorite thinkers. Witty, wise, and insatiably curious, he is one of the few intellectuals who can reliably weave scientific research and everyday observations into what we all really need: succinct advice for a good life.” —Angela Duckworth, founder and CEO of Character Lab and author of Grit
“In this sparkling book, Arthur Brooks considers one of the oldest and deepest questions in the spiritual tradition, namely, how to navigate the tricky waters that separate the first and second halves of life. I found inspiration and hope literally on every page.” —Bishop Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
“From Strength to Strength offers real answers to timeless questions about happiness and progress: How can I be happier? How can I have more meaning in life? What is the most important thing to me right now and why?” —Eric Schmidt, former chairman and CEO of Google

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you are a go-getter, hard worker always striving for the next brass ring, read this. It will help when you don’t have it anymore, really!
And it is wonderfully written with great stories and data to back it all up. I’m a fan.

The book is really well written, from a social psychologist perspective and I would recommend it because it covers excellent challenging subjects. However this is definitely not suitable for giving as a gift to someone retiring! The contents focus on mental decline, success addiction, death, loneliness, spiritual inspirations etc. which, the way is written, is a bit depressing for someone about to launch into their next stage of life. This is suitable for people at a cross roads needing a self help councilling book with insight. This book offers that. But my director is in a good place, moving onto new exciting things and this would have been a downer. It is an excellent book, beautifully written and very relevent for deep thinkers, good stories. The book ends with 7 key words/3 mentras:
1. Use things
2. Love people
3. Worship the divine.
I would have been mortified if my director had been given this as it implies he needs help!! Lol
Als Gute-Nacht-Lektüre sicher brauchbar, aber insgesamt schwingt mir zu viel Dogmatismus mit. Einverstanden bin ich mit der Auffassung, das eigene Leben zu hinterfragen. Den "Punkte-Plan" des Autoren kann ich nur als _seinen_ Weg verstehen und nur wenig auf mein Leben übertragen.
