Since the invention of the clock, humans have become keenly aware of time-both how much they have and how quickly it slips away. In this classic book on time management, Bennett instructs his readers on how to live life to the fullest, given that there are twenty-four hours in a day and always so much to accomplish. Managing time, not money, is the true route to happiness. You can get more money. But time is parceled out at the same rate for everyone, no matter their class or income. Time, the rarest commodity, cannot be made to last, but it can be lived. And by living it properly, anyone can improve their level of satisfaction and happiness. British writer ARNOLD BENNETT (1867-1931) wrote both fiction and nonfiction, but he is best known for the novels Anna of the Five Towns (1902), Buried Alive (1908), and Clayhanger (1910).

How to get on well with people, how to deal with violence, how to adjust to losing someone you love? How to live? This question obsessed Renaissance nobleman Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533-92), who wrote free-roaming explorations of his thought and experience, unlike anything written before. Into these essays he put whatever was in his head: his tastes in wine and food, his childhood memories, the way his dog's ears twitched when it was dreaming, events in the appalling civil wars raging around him. The Essays was an instant bestseller, and over four hundred years later, readers still come to him in search of companionship, wisdom and entertainment - and in search of themselves. This first full biography of Montaigne in English for nearly fifty years relates the story of his life by way of the questions he posed and the answers he explored.

The secret to happiness, longevity, and living on is through mentoring the next generation In How to Live Forever, Encore.org founder and CEO Marc Freedman tells the story of his thirty-year quest to answer some of contemporary life's most urgent questions: With so many living so much longer, what is the meaning of the increasing years beyond 50? How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive? How do we find happiness when we know life is long and time is short? In a poignant book that defies categorization, Freedman finds insights by exploring purpose and generativity, digging into the drive for longevity and the perils of age segregation, and talking to social innovators across the globe bringing the generations together for mutual benefit. He finds wisdom in stories from young and old, featuring ordinary people and icons like jazz great Clark Terry and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But the answers also come from stories of Freedman's own mentors-a sawmill worker turned surrogate grandparent, a university administrator who served as Einstein's driver, a cabinet secretary who won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the gym teacher who was Freedman's father. How to Live Forever is a deeply personal call to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us.

Irving Fisher's interest in public health was the result of a bout with tuberculosis, after which he wrote "How to Live: Rules for Healthful Living Based on Modern Science." In his foreword to the book, former president and then-future Chief Justice William Howard Taft wrote that there were many "considerations that have influenced me to cooperate with the life extension movement, and to commend this volume to the earnest consideration of all who desire authoritative guidance in improving their own physical condition or in making effective the knowledge now available for bringing health and happiness to our people." To do that, the authors present chapters on the air, food, poisons, activities, and general hygiene, followed by sections dealing with being overweight or underweight, alcohol, posture, and tobacco -- and even how to avoid colds. Irving Fisher was a top American economist in the early 20th century who earned the first Ph.D. in economics awarded by Yale University, where he also taught political economy. He was an accomplished mathematician and an engaging and talented writer on even the most technical of subjects whose investigations ranged beyond economics to encompass astronomy, health and hygiene, mechanics, philosophy, poetry, science, and myriad public policy issues. Dr. Eugene Lyman Fisk was the chairman of the Life Extension Institute, under whose auspices this book was published.

In this witty guide for seekers of all ages, author Henry Alford seeks instant enlightenment through conversations with those who have lived long and lived well. Armed with recent medical evidence that supports the cliche that older people are, indeed, wiser, Alford sets off to interview people over 70--some famous (Phyllis Diller, Harold Bloom, Edward Albee), some accomplished (the world's most-quoted author, a woman who walked across the country at age 89 in support of campaign finance reform), some unusual (a pastor who thinks napping is a form of prayer, a retired aerospace engineer who eats food out of the garbage.) Early on in the process, Alford interviews his 79 year-old mother and step-father, and inadvertently changes the course of their 36 year-long union. Part family memoir, part Studs Terkel, How To Live considers some unusual sources--deathbed confessions, late-in-life journals--to deliver a highly optimistic look at our dying days. By showing that life after 70 is the fulfillment of, not the end to, life's questions and trials, How to Live delivers that most unexpected punch: it makes you actually want to get older.

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - A person may almost be known by the books he reads. If he habitually reads bad books, we can pretty safely conclude that he is a bad man; on the other hand, if he habitually reads religious books, we can reasonably presume that he is a religious man. Why is this? It is because the nature of a person's books is usually the nature of his thoughts; and as a man thinks, so he is. Consequently, our reading devotional literature is a great aid to our being devotional. Too few, I fear, realize how important to our spiritual advancement is the cultivation of a taste for devotional reading. As a rule, those who have a taste for spiritual books and gratify that taste prosper in the Lord, while those who have no relish for such books labor at a great disadvantage. Some one has said that "he who begins a devout life without a taste for spiritual reading may consider the ordinary difficulties multiplied in his case by ten." The most spiritual men of all ages have had a strong love for reading spiritual books. If, however, my reader happens not to have such a taste or such a love, he should not be discouraged, for it can be created and increased through perseverance in reading devotional literature.

Immortality is a subject which has long been explored and imagined by science fiction writers. In his intriguing new study, Stephen R.L.Clark argues that the genre of science fiction writing allows investigation of philosophical questions about immortality without the constraints of academic philosophy. He reveals how fantasy accounts of issues such as resurrection, disembodied survival, reincarnation and devices or drugs for preserving life can be used as an important resource for philosophical inquiry and examines how a society of immortals might function through a reading of the vampire myth. How to Live Forever is a compelling study which introduces students and professional philosophers to the possibilities of using science fiction in their work. It includes extensive suggestions for further reading, both fictional and philosophical, and examines the work of such major science fiction authors as Arthur C. Clarke, Frank Herbert, Larry Niven, William Gibson, and Colin Wilson.

In lively and entertaining prose and verse Max Roytenberg offers his perspective on life and its events in Rehearsing How to Live: Reaching Out to Life. He draws conclusions on living and loving, the order of our priorities, parents and children, wives and families, life and death, and aging and dying. He discusses the rapid pace of the changing society around us, along with the challenges of technology and changing demographics. He asks questions and shares his answers-how have we dealt with these elements of life, what have we done right, what have we done wrong, what might we have done, and what might we yet do? Roytenberg believes that life is a rehearsal every day for how we may face our tomorrows better prepared. These poems have been written over a period of more than fifty years and focus on the benefits of hindsight, second guessing, and maybe a few lies about what really happened. Can We See? Skitter-scatter, wind-swept droplets beat staccato rhythms on our glassy apertures shattering into filigree the apparitions that dance so visibly in the light of rainless day. Looking back at our histories, our views clouded by the torrents of emotion, silvering shadows gilding the realities, we shield the constructs that protect our private images of the past. Do we ever truly see our histories clearly in the light?

We live in a society governed by Fear. Packets of peanuts ‘may contain nuts’, our children are locked away safe indoors, and we are encouraged to fear risks that previous generations took for granted. The result is a temptation never to leave the house. How to Live Dangerously is a sane, straight-talking, wonderfully entertaining manifesto that assesses the real risks of modern-day life*, and encourages us to embrace a new freedom in the way we live. Sometimes, sh1t happens – but you may as well get out there and enjoy yourself while you can because, in the end, you’re a long time dead. *Don’t like your children much? You’d have to lock them out of the house every day for 186,000 years before they were abducted (and even then you’d get them back within 24 hours) *Afraid of flying? If you really want to die in a plane crash, you’ll need to take a flight a day for the next 26,000 years . . .
