Description

"Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young." So said W. Somerset Maugham, one of the 52 people whose achievements after age 65 are featured in Splendid Seniors: Great Lives, Great Deeds. The inspiring ensemble includes Mary Baker Eddy, who was 86 when she founded the Christian Science Monitor; Alexander Graham Bell, who received a patent for his work on a hydrofoil boat at age 75; Benjamin Disraeli, who became prime minister of England for the second time when he was 70; and Susan B. Anthony, who was past 80 when she founded the International Woman Suffrage Alliance. Splendid Seniors reminds us that creativity, intelligence, passion & influence can not only flower in later years, but bear delicious fruit.show more
