75 Remarkable People Who Found FAME, SUCCESS & JOY in the Second Half of Their Lives
Originally rated at 4 stars, then re-rated once I looked more closely at the mini- ... well, micro- ... well, nano- biographies included. (view spoiler) of the "75" (make that 74) Late Bloomers mentioned, one of whom, by the by, is Laurence Stern.

Our culture is so heavily tilted toward the beauty and freshness of youth that we seem to have forgotten the worth of the old. This little book reminds us of that, reminds us that, over and over again, the old have created art, written books,
invented helpful devices, and sparked revolutions in thinking.

A good thing to remember. It’s not over yet.
The wrong auther pulls up on this book = I read the one by Fern Michaels - I don't know if this auther is the same book. But it was an excellent book by Fern Michaels about a girl who had a childhood accident and can't remember it until she goes back to her home town when she is about 30 years old and it comes back to her what happened with her friends.

Such a great book. Inspiring, encouraging, revealing life sketches by an author with affection for his subjects. Perfect for the loo, the guest bedroom or by the bedside.

You feel Brendan Gill's warm intelligence glowing throughout. We've read this book through so many times in my household, it's time to buy a new copy.
