Think there's a deadline on your happiness? Convinced you are running out of time to find love, get fit or achieve success? Bolder is here to change the conversation about ageing, and prove that there is no cut-off on being active, attractive and relevant.
Old age tends to conjure up visions of loneliness, rocking chairs and possibly some tea and biscuits. On a mission to change perceptions about growing older, Dominique Afacan and Helen Cathart capture a journey of people aged 70 and older who make old age look appealing or even -- gasp! -- fun.
This book is full of real people, not acting anything like their media-prescribed age, telling their inspirational stories. Stories include a woman who fell in love and married, aged 82. while another centres around a man who swims a mile in the Mediterranean Sea every morning, aged 85.
This book champions people over the age of 70 who are still creating, inspiring or working, and so many of them cite the happiest time of life as now, not then. Chapters tackle the eternal themes of Success, Love & Sex, Happiness, Family, Health & Fitness, Style & Beauty, Work, Friends, Regrets and Death. Full of surprises and hilarity from 28 people who are anything but invisible, Bolder is full of life lessons that everyone can learn from.
