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.
