Celebrating the Achievements of the Older Generation: Living Life to the Full
This book celebrates the achievement and talent of those in advanced years across a wide range of activities. Some of the people included made amazing achievements throughout their lives and into very old age, while others picked up skills again and developed them in different ways later in life. Then there are those who embarked upon entirely new activities and enterprises to great acclaim. The book includes a fascinating mix of familiar names and hidden gems, and emphasises the limitless possibilities of life, where “age is only a number” and positivity is a common theme. International in nature, this book will be of great interest as a point of reference for academics from all fields. In addition, it is fascinating reading for anyone who wants to be inspired by the astonishing feats of over 100 people who have triumphed in their golden years.
