Lives & Times
Available in Stock
Edmund Morrison's compilation of human achievements is arranged by age, starting at 5 years, the age at which Mozart completed his first compositions, and ending with a 92-year-old Vera Lynn topping the UK album chart. The temptation is to look up your own age and see if there's hope for you yet, but once opened this kind of book is difficult to close. Morrison not only provides details of some 1,000 subjects' great works, but briefly describes their lives and other achievements.
