In this inspiring series of letters to his grandchildren, David Suzuki offers grandfatherly advice mixed with stories from his own remarkable life and explores what makes life meaningful. He challenges his grandchildren—and us—to do everything at full tilt. He explains why sports, fishing, feminism, and failure are important; why it is dangerous to deny our biological nature; and why First Nations must lead a revolution. Drawing on his own experiences and the wisdom he has gained over his long life, he decries the lack of elders and grandparents in the lives of many people, especially immigrants, and champions the importance of heroes. And he even has something to say about fashion.

In his most important book since The Sacred Balance and his most personal ever, revered activist and thinker David Suzuki draws on the experiences and wisdom he has gained over his long life and offers advice, stories, and inspiration to his six grandchildren.

In these inspiring letters to his grandchildren, David Suzuki speaks personally and passionately about their future. He also explains why sports, fishing, feminism, and failure are important; why it is dangerous to deny our biological nature; and why First Nations must lead a revolution. He even has something to say about fashion.

His letters are also chockfull of stories about his own childhood and anecdotes about his children and grandchildren when they were small, providing an intimate look at Suzuki’s life as a father and grandfather. Most of all, as he ponders life’s deepest questions and offers up a lifetime of wisdom, Suzuki inspires us all to live with courage, conviction, and passion.

    As a student of global sustainability I was one of the luckiest to be present in Suzuki’s lecture in the Toronto Public Library on the 27th May 2015. So motivating and an eye opener for any all generations! The values of family, contributions by its each member to build a world which is inclusive in real sense! Live and let live!
