Life Is So Good

Random House

One man's extraordinary journey through the twentieth century and how he learned to read at age 98

"Things will be all right. People need to hear that. Life is good, just as it is. There isn't anything I would change about my life."-George Dawson

In this remarkable book, George Dawson, a slave's grandson who learned to read at age 98 and lived to the age of 103, reflects on his life and shares valuable lessons in living, as well as a fresh, firsthand view of America during the entire sweep of the twentieth century. Richard Glaubman captures Dawson's irresistible voice and view of the world, offering insights into humanity, history, hardships, and happiness. From segregation and civil rights, to the wars and the presidents, to defining moments in history, George Dawson's description and assessment of the last century inspires readers with the message that has sustained him through it all: "Life is so good. I do believe it's getting better."

WINNER OF THE CHRISTOPHER AWARD

"A testament to the power of perseverance."-USA Today

"Life Is So Good is about character, soul and spirit. . . . The pride in standing his ground is matched-maybe even exceeded-by the accomplishment of [George Dawson's] hard-won education."-The Washington Post
