Publisher's Summary

Dr. Gordon Livingston's national best seller, Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart, has drawn tens of thousands of readers who have embraced its 30 bedrock truths about life and how best to live it. Now, in And Never Stop Dancing, Dr. Livingston, a Vietnam War veteran, psychiatrist, and parent twice bereaved, offers 30 more true things we need to know now.

Among the fresh truths Dr. Livingston identifies and explores are: Paradox governs our lives. Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves. Marriage ruins a lot of good relationships. We are defined by what we fear. We all live downstream. One of life's most difficult tasks is to see ourselves as others see us. As we grow old, the beauty steals inward. Most people die with their music still inside of them.

Once again, here are Dr. Livingston's sterling qualities: a deep understanding of the emotional tumult that courses through our lives, our hidden hypocrisies, desires, and evasions; an unerring sense of what is important (he does not waste a single moment writing about unimportant things); and his own ability to persevere, to hope, in a world he knows to be capable of inflicting unjustifiable and lifelong suffering.

These qualities, plus his perfectly pitched sense of humor and a voice that has been described as "more Job than Dr. Phil" (The Washington Post), add up to another extraordinary book, one which, like its predecessor, offers us a gentle, generous, and unusual alternative to the trial-and-error learning that makes wisdom such an expensive commodity.

    "sophomore slump"

    I loved his first book. This one? Not so much. Some of the advice is solid but unfortunately Mr. Livingston gets WAY too preachy in this book. If you liked his first book, give this one a go, but prepare to be disappointed.

    "Not so much..."

    Like the previous reviewer, I loved the first book. I was also able to overlook the occasional forays into politics.

    This "second chapter" seemed similar but with a lot more involvement in current political and social issues. Any inspirational and practical messages seemed overpowered by the author's personal agendas.

    Still, a worthwhile read, even though the narration suffered from a lack of affect and I missed the energized reading that characterized "Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart".

    "bleh"

    Really weak. Almost pointless. "Too soon old, too late smart" was much better.
