Publisher's Summary

Still Here: Embracing Aging, Changing, and Dying is Ram Dass' reflection on the joys, pains, and opportunities that appear as we age. In 1997, Ram Dass suffered a nearly incapacitating stroke that affected his speech and movement. Over the next two years, he worked to regain his damaged capacities. From this experience he has produced a timely and thoughtful book that touches an important contemporary issue - our fears and apprehension about aging.In the 1960s Ram Dass was a Harvard professor who turned to Eastern religion to answer the questions troubling his generation. He shared his story in the landmark classic, Be Here Now, which instantly captured the spiritual longings of his contemporaries. In Still Here, Ram Dass once again brings understanding, common sense, and reassurance for those of us facing the final season of life.

Well worth listening to

I really enjoyed this book. The book relates spiritual concepts to the subject of aging very well. The viewpoint throughout is very positive, even the section on death. Ram Dass is a unique voice among American spiritual teachers....if you have read him before you will enjoy this, if not it might be better to start with one of his earlier books.

material is great, but...

I love and admire Ram Dass. This is a wonderful book. Unfortunately, the narrator's voice really got on my last nerve after a while. He does a fine job, but his voice is the kind of voice we hear in commercials and movie trailers--dramatic and "growlly" (if that's a word). I found myself being annoyed by the voice rather than listening to what was being said. You may not have this problem, but it sure messed up my listening pleasure!
