New York Times-bestselling author looks for the meaning of a good life by seeking advice from the very young and the very old. When his first book tour ended, Brad Montague missed hearing other people's stories so much that he launched what he dubbed a Listening Tour. First visiting elementary schools and later also nursing homes and retirement communities, he hoped to glean new wisdom as to how he might become a better grownup. Now, in this playful and buoyant book, he shares those insights with rest of us—timeless, often surprising lessons that bypass the head we're always stuck in, and go straight to the heart we sometimes forget.  Each of the book's three sections begins with the story of "The Incredible Floating Girl." Brad weaves this story together with lessons of success, fear, regret, gratitude, love, happiness, and dreams to reveal the true reason we are here: to fly, and to help others fly. Becoming Better Grownups shares the purpose and meaning we can all discover merely by listening, and reveals that—in a world that seems increasingly childish—the secret to joy is in fact to become more childlike. *Includes a PDF of the author's illustrations.
