"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

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!"

"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."
