Publisher's Summary

If there is one book which spans generations with the common thread of collective wisdom, it is this one.
Nineteen centenarians from different countries and a cross-section of society share their memoirs, intertwined with the history of their century, as they experienced it. They were ordinary people who lived extraordinary lives. In this audio, they share their values, beliefs, habits, attitudes, and lessons learnt from living to be a hundred. Most important of all, they tell us how to harmonize science and soul.
They were around from the rustic horse and buggy age to the sequencing of the human genome. They witnessed the Big Bands performing, the railroads being constructed, and Gandhiji's non-violent movement against the British. They have had personal experiences of the Great Depression, the World Wars, the Japanese invasion of China, India's freedom struggle, and apartheid. They have lost children to war and poverty.
So what inspired them and kept them spirited? What did they learn from history? How did they find the strength and the will to keep going in times of despair? Is there hope in the 21st century for all of us to achieve more fulfilling lives? In their diverse narratives, they offer us a common and real hope for health, longevity, and a saner world-based on our own humanity.
