"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, passion & influence can
not only flower in later years, but bear delicious fruit.
"The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes."
Frank Lloyd Wright
PRAISE for Splendid Seniors
"Splendid Seniors: Great Lives, Great Deeds is an anthology
featuring brief biographical profiles of fifty-two people who made great and lasting achievements after age
sixty-five. From Mother Teresa to Alexander Graham Bell, Albert
Einstein, Charles de Gaulle, Pablo Picasso, Grandma
Moses and many more, Splendid Seniors offers true tales of inspirational
deeds as well as memorable quotes from each individual profiled. A source of inspiration for seniors
everywhere, and proof that greatness, creativity, passion, and intelligence can bloom their brightest with
age and experience."

"Jack Adler's new book is great! Splendid Seniors should be in every school
library, if not on
every required reading list. It contains a lot of things I'd forgotten, as well as many new and interesting facts
about the selected 'senior achievers.' It makes me want to walk up to people and say 'Did you know....?' I
found this book to be informative as well as delightful—a good gift for 'juniors' and 'seniors.' My Dad will be
getting a copy for Father's Day!"
West Jefferson, NC.
"While having a senior moment means you may have forgotten something, reading Splendid
Seniors: Great Lives, Great Deeds is the key to remembering something: the amazing
accomplishments made by those over the age of 65. Written by North Hollywood author, playwright and
screenwriter Jack Adler, the book recognizes 52 achievers who are recognized for their
creativity, political and scientific contributions, personal expression and community
involvement. Reading about Alexander Graham Bell, Mary Baker Eddy and Benjamin
Disraeli, whose lives were rich with purpose in their later years, is an inspiration to all that it's
never too late to pursue a passion. As Frank Lloyd Wright said, "The longer I live, the more
beautiful life becomes."
