VOLUME I: Taking Charge: Collected Stories on Aging Boldly
"Robert Frost once said "In three words I can sum up everything I learned about life—it goes on." Indeed it does, and Herb chronicles the journey integrating the research and the real-life happenings with wit and wisdom. He moves beyond the surface to explore the facts as well as the depth of feelings beneath it. In this era of speed and change, with eternal youth as a major goal, he takes the time to find the truth and then uses it to illuminate the many facts of aging with timeless observations delivered in lively readable portions." - Kathlyn Connell (Former Secretary of State of RI, Former State Director of AARP-RI) (READ MORE)
VOLUME II: Taking Charge: MORE Collected Stories on Aging Boldly
"Herb Weiss’s collection of 72 essays portrays how we can all age boldly. His book provides a refreshingly positive portrait of living longer. What is striking as you read each of his stories is that despite our culture’s general worship of youth, Herb’s “age beat” is a place that celebrates the increasing wisdom and experience that comes with longer lives. His writings offer the most human and best way of giving you the advice you need in a way you want: storytelling." - Sarah Lenz Lock (Senior Vice President for Policy, AARP; Executive Director, GCBH) (READ MORE)
“These stories within stories blend real-world wisdom and research to create an engaging and enlightening view of the many sides of aging that is both informative and inspiring.”
—Dr. Phil Clark, Director of Gerontology Program, University of Rhode Island
