In Dr. Gordon Livingston’s follow-up to his national bestseller Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart, he offers thirty more true things we need to know now. Among the fresh truths he identifies and explores in this book, which has sold more than 50,000 copies in hardcover, 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.
Dr. Livingston’s sterling qualities are in evidence again: a clear and deep understanding of the hidden hypocrisies, desires, evasions, and emotional tumult that course through our lives; an unerring sense of what is important; and his own ability to persevere—to hope—in a world he knows is capable of inflicting unjustifiable and lifelong suffering.

PRAISE FOR AND NEVER STOP DANCING
"So much wisdom, so many quotable aphorisms in such a compact book. Read it!" —RABBI HAROLD KUSHNER, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
"Secrets for joyful living spill forth. We learn that the most precious gift is learning to forgive ourselves, especially when we indulge in the illusion that we can control everything." —MEHMET OZ, M.D., professor and vice chairman of surgery, New York Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center, coauthor of You: The Owner’s Manual
"Dr. Livingston strikingly renews our understanding of major issues of personal life––aging, relationships, self-worth, responsibility, and the problem of meaning. He writes from long experience as a doctor, counselor, and teacher, but most profoundly from the standpoint of a human being who has faced life’s ups and downs himself, with suffering, courage, and humor." ––ROBERT GRUDIN, author of Time and the Art of Living
PRAISE FOR TOO SOON OLD, TOO LATE SMART
"He is more Job than Dr. Phil, painfully aware of life’s losses and limitations, trying to spare you a little hurt. He thinks in paragraphs, not in sound bites." —ROXANNE ROBERTS, The Washington Post

"Among the many blithe and hollow self-help books available everywhere, this book stands out as a jewel." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[Livingston] plays personal warmth against steely professional insight." —The Dallas Morning NewsAbout the Author:
Gordon Livingston, M.D., a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran, has been a physician since 1967. An op-ed writer for several newspapers, his other books are Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart and Only Spring. He lives in Columbia, Maryland.
