Profound, compassionate, and deeply useful, this book is a guide to the genius and capacities inherent in the second half of life. It brooks no whiney nay-saying but rather offers a repositioning of the senior in our time. Seniors become the mid¬wives of souls, the evocateurs of self and society.
When you first meet certain people, you can instantly tell what ignites their hearts and souls. You can immediately see that spark when you hear George and Sedena Cappannelli illuminate the wisdom and life-affirming contributions about individuals who are-as I like to call it-moving from 'aging to saging.' Do Not Go Quietly offers invaluable insights into what is an increasingly vital subject of our time and our collective future,.

In Do Not Go Quietly, the Cappannellis remind us that the road to a more conscious future passes directly through the process of harvesting the wisdom and experience of our past and participating individually and collectively in writing a new `third act' for the future.

George and Sedena have written a thoughtful, thorough, and surprising book on the wisdom of aging. It inspires and encourages us to live fully at any age, to act boldly for the sake of the world as well as our own souls.
