Bolderis on a mission to change perceptions about growing older. Old age tends to conjure up visions of loneliness, rocking chairs and possibly some tea and biscuits. But this book captures a journey to find 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. One of the stories in the book features a woman who fell in love and married, aged 82. Another centres around a man who swims a mile in the Mediterranean Sea every morning, aged 85. From well-known names including Zandra Rhodes, Barbara Hulanicki and Michel Roux, to lesser-known people who will become your new heroes, you won't be able to put this book down. Nearly all of the interviewees are still working or creating in some way. And so many of them cite the happiest time of life as now, not then.

This book champions people over the age of 70 who are still creating, inspiring or working, and the goal is to change perceptions about growing older. 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.
