Today we'll be talking with Karl Pillemer, Ph.D. about  his new book, 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True  Advice from  the Wisest Americans (Hudson Street Press). The book, based on The Legacy Project, is a  compilation of great advice from our nation's elders on relationships, work-life balance, stress management, parenting and family relationships, and living life to the fullest.

Karl Pillemer is a professor of human development in the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University, and Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College.

About The Legacy Project: The Legacy Project began in 2004, when Dr. Pillemer started collecting the practical advice for living from America’s elders. Using a number of different methods, his research team systematically gathered nearly 1500 responses to the question: “What are the most important lessons you have learned over the course of your life?”
