Ever thought no-one achieved anything at your age? This is the antidote. Mary Wesley published her first book at 70. Read on..
This book describes the achievements of the famous and the not-so-famous, arranged according to the age at which they achieved sporting greatness, wrote that novel, or invented that gadget we all use every day. For example, Ethel Seymour won an Olympic medal in gymnastics at 46. You will discover the person with the world's most impressive trophy cabinet having won the Nobel Prize (at 69) and an Academy Award (at 82). Did you know that the most popular age for signing the American Declaration of Independence was 50? In Scotland, the first six Kings named James were under 16 when they ascended the throne. With about 1,000 examples of age related success, there is something for everyone with an age. It's light, it's trivia - but very entertaining trivia.
