This wise and simple book provides commonsense strategies for adults who want to better communicate with their families. As opposed to other approaches that emphasize estate planning or creating scrapbooks and photo albums to leave behind, this book stresses the importance of communicating openly in the present. Readers are shown how to share their own stories with their loved ones, allowing their families to truly kw who they are and to understand their hopes, fears, successes, and failures. This book is a reminder that the most important legacy is a legacy of the heart.
