The Seasons of a Man's Life
Daniel Levinson et al.
Product Overview
This book provides a more or less general picture of the so-called "seasons" of a man's life. It shows examples of various men who set out to realize their dream or ideal life, only to discover later in life that they must confront and eventually accept the reality that they may not be able to actually fulfill that initial dream. One example that I can remember is the academic who wanted to receive recognition for his work by receiving the Nobel prize, but to his great disappointment was beaten to it by a rival group. He later found solace in providing mentorship to the younger generation of scientists in his field.
