Meet the grandfather you always wish you had.

Life couldn't have been more predictable for Theodore Ryan Robb, born into a family of wealth and political power in 1934. But when childhood circumstances forged a path that diverged from his inheritance, Robb became a detached observer of society and of his storied family. This perspective accompanied him into Yale and behind the Iron Curtain, where he emerged as a witness to events that defined America in the second half of the twentieth century. Now in his eighth decade, Ted Robb-a state politician who engaged with Presidents Nixon and Ford-continues to evolve politically as he grapples with issues such as injustice, oppression, and privilege. The Other Side of This Life, a must-read for any graduate of any age, offers guidance through experience, crafted by a lifelong storyteller who, in spite of his extraordinary opportunities, sees himself as quite ordinary.
