From Strength to Strength, a book launch event with Arthur Brooks


Thursday, February 10, 2022, 4:00pm


Klarman Hall, Harvard Business School

From Strength to Strength is a guide to transforming the life changes we fear into a source of strength and opportunity.

About this event

Please join Professor Arthur Brooks for a conversation on his new book, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life, featuring introductory remarks from Seth Klarman, (MBA '82), CEO of The Baupost Group of Boston. “Change in life is inevitable, but suffering from it is not,” says Brooks. “We can succeed in life and work in new and spectacular ways, but we first have to understand our changing strengths.” From Strength to Strength is a handbook to happiness in the second half of life.
