Publisher's Summary

From the author of the beloved 30 Lessons for Living, Karl Pillemer's 30 Lessons for Living first became a hit and then became a classic. Readers loved the sage advice and great stories from extraordinary older Americans who shared what they wish they had known when they were starting out. Now, Pillemer returns with lessons on one of the most talked-about parts of that book - love, relationships, and marriage.
Based on the most detailed survey of long married people ever conducted, 30 Lessons for Loving shows the way to lifelong, fulfilling relationships. The author, an internationally renowned gerontologist at Cornell University, offers sage advice from the oldest and wisest Americans on everything from finding a partner, to deciding to commit, to growing old together. Along the way, the book answers questions like these: How do you know if the person you love is the right one? What are the secrets for improving communication and reducing conflict? What gets you through the major stresses of marriage, such as child-rearing, work, money issues, and inlaws?
From interviews with 700 elders, 30 Lessons for Loving offers unique wisdom that will enrich anyone's relationship life, from people searching for the right partner to those working to keep the spark alive after decades together. Filled with great stories, wise observations, and useful advice, 30 Lessons for Loving is destined to become another classic.

Our Elders Really are the Experts!

This book that chronicles the key components of elder wisdom has given more insight into what helps love last or not last over a lifetime.

I had not read the first book by the author also giving the best Elder/Expert advice on living but now I am eager to read that one too.

Life investment

As the title states life investment for those at looking for a partner, in a relationship or already married. So much valuable insight and very enjoyable to listen to.
