Claiming Your Place at the Fire presents a new paradigm of successful aging for men and women entering into and moving through the second half of their lives. Exploring key concepts like purpose and renewal, bestselling authors Leider and Shapiro help readers claim their rightful place as "new elders"-individuals who realize the power that comes with true wisdom and who accept the deep responsibility to share that wisdom for the benefit of their loved ones, their communities, and the world at large.
