As is stated on the back jacket flap: "Only when we begin to feel in touch with our own life cycles will we be able to develop life styles where 'being' is not identified with 'having,' where self-esteem is not measured by success, where goodness is not the same as popularity. Aging show us all how to start fulfilling our lives by giving to others 'so that when we leave this world, we can be what we have given.'"
