Présentation de l'éditeur

Are you a late-blooming adult? Do you think life has passed you by? Not so! This book will remind you that it’s truly “never too late.” Here are some examples:

At age 36, Julia Child savored her first French meal. It changed her life and ours.There’d be no Food Network without her!

At age 37, after years selling snake oil and pencil sharpeners, Edgar Rice Burroughs published Tarzan.

At age 39, when her husband couldn’t find backing, Bertha Benz took his invention, the automobile, on the very first road trip to generate funds.

At age 48, after another talent show rejected her, Susan Boyle electrified the world with her singing voice.

At age 49, after decades of odd jobs, English character actress Liz Smith got her big break.

At age 50, after twenty years as a personal assistant, Bram Stoker wrote Dracula.

There’s a granny who, at age 64, took up competitive hip-hop dancing (and beat teenagers), one who became a famous nightclub DJ at age 68, and one who her ran her first marathon at age 86.

These are some of the fascinating people you’ll meet in this expanded compilation from the popular blog, Now it’s your turn. In the garden of life, the “late-blooming” flower blossoms right on time!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow, this book resonated with me on so many levels! 28 décembre 2011

I just returned to college this past year at age 39, and I simply relished this book. I am usually one of the 4-5 oldest students in the classes at my community college. At this time, I am in between the winter and spring break at school and I desperately needed some inspiration and I truly found it in this book. I plan on telling others about it on Facebook and Pinterest too. The research was good. I have always enjoyed biographies, and this book is a scrapbook of mini biographies. There was something to be learned and applied from each person's life that she discussed. I used to think that the world had passed me by, but not anymore. I am just getting started! I know I will read this again. I read it so fast. I just could not put it down.

I would recommend this book to men or women, especially those who are stuck in a rut, maybe they lost their job and are having a tough time marketing themselves for a new job, and for especially for empty nesters. Happy reading!

I had never read Debra Eve's blog, but I will now be checking it out regularly because this book was really enlightening. It offers inspiring motivation for those of us who feel like we've never quite gotten it right. Debra Eve rolls out one story after the next of late bloomers -- some already in old age -- who've achieved goals, and in some cases major recognition later in life. She offers a 'lesson' motto after each one. My favorite is "Ignore your naysayers and dance to your own tune." In examining the various reasons some people don't hit their stride until they're past midlife, she includes historical figures like Ben Franklin, Charles Perrault and scientist Mary Somerville in addition to modern examples like Susan Boyle.
Looks likes this will be the first in a series, and it is one series I will definitely have on my TBR list.

I'm so glad that I found this book because I'm going through a 'what am I doing with my life' moment right now - days away from turning 40. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who ever has doubted what they want to do when they 'grow up' or if they've known all along but have had things standing in the way of realizing those goals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For those of us over 60 this is encouraging 25 mai 2012

OK, so I'm over 60, this year. And I didn't get married until I was in my mid 30's, and didn't have my first child until I was 45 and didn't get my first book published until I was 50. And my next three books came out in my mid 50's. Now, I'm getting ready to start the biggest business venture of my life this year. So, I LOVE this book. I love reading about "Late Bloomers". And you will too. What hope this book offers! Get it for someone who feels they are over the hill. Get it for someone who thinks they have not yet done what they 'really want to do'. It's a great, inspiring read!

I am 30 years young, and this book reminded me while I may not have been successful yet, I have plenty of time. It takes years to learn everything that I want to know and I have spent most of my life learning a lot of different things. I feel like in the future I will learn more and I will have more things that I want to do. Even though I may be a "later bloomer" there is still plenty of time to be "successful" if I want to be.
