About this deal

At their age, I was so very fortunate to shadow Esther Rantzen from her green room to live broadcast on BBC That’s Life and Hearts of Gold. She was awarded a DBE in 2015 for her services to children and older people, through her pioneering work as founder of Childline and The Silver Line. Los Angeles-based skydivers Pat and Alicia both hold multiple skydiving world records and between them have made almost 10,000 jumps. in this life-affirming book, she looks back from her ninth decade, and shares her most significant memories, from meeting Princess Diana to creating a national outrage with a short film about a driving dog, and reflects with candour and humour on the lessons she's learnt, revealing the hints, hacks and personal philosophies that have been her secrets of surviving almost everything. In this easy to access A-Z, drawing on her own life experience and hard-earned wisdom, Dame Esther uses her combination of cheery humour, empathetic advice and frank taboo-breaking to provide a trusty handbook for all her fellow golden agers, who enjoy being the life the soul.
