Multi-award-winning broadcaster, founder of Child Line and Silver Line, campaigner, journalist, author, not forgetting mother and grandmother, joyous life force of our times Dame Esther Rantzen dazzles in the glory of getting older and ever bolder.

And now in this punchy, energizing A-Z, 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. Although she covers her most recent challenge in a powerful Afterword, this is a book about living, not dying.

We may not all achieve what Dame Esther has, but here we can soak up her wisdom, laugh with her, learn from her, embrace the passing years and march boldly on.
