Synopsis

Have you ever thought no-one achieved anything at your age? This is the antidote. 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. Discover the identity of the person with the world's most impressive trophy cabinet, having won both a Nobel Prize and an Academy Award. 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, The Octogenarian Ski-jumper has something for everyone with an age.
