Seit fünfundzwanzig Jahren inspiriert Julia Cameron mit ihrem Weltbestseller „Der Weg des Künstlers“ Millionen von Menschen, ihre Kreativität zu leben. Die bekannte Seminarleiterin stellt nun ein neues 12-Wochen-Programm vor, mit dem es gelingt, nach dem Arbeitsleben endlich lang gehegte Träume zu verwirklichen. Ihr Lebenshilfe-Ratgeber ermöglicht in zwölf Kapiteln, Altes loszulassen und noch einmal einen Neuanfang zu wagen. Für die damit verbundene Lebensrückschau wird die eigene Lebenszeit durch zwölf geteilt, und man beschäftigt sich jede Woche mit einem Lebensabschnitt. Diese Bilanz, die wöchentlich in einem Memoir zusammengefasst wird, ist die Basis, um wirklich Frieden mit der Vergangenheit zu schließen und frei zu werden für einen Neuanfang. Julia Cameron, die selbst 65 ist, wendet ihre erfolgreichen und bewährten Tools für mehr Kreativität mit viel Know-how auf die besondere Situation der Best-Ager an: das handschriftliche Schreiben von drei Seiten am Morgen, Kreativ-Tage, Inspirations-Spaziergänge. Eine Fülle inspirierender Fallgeschichten erzählt von Menschen, die in der Rente angefangen haben Klavier zu spielen, zu malen oder in ferne Länder zu reisen. Sie machen Mut und zeigen, wie lebenserfüllend es ist, wenn man auf seine innere Stimme hört und sich selbst verwirklicht. Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann?

Libraries are filled with volumes containing recipes for growing old gracefully. Most of them are based on mountains of research and statistics. Career correspondent and author Roy Rowan read many of these books, and found in them some good advice. Never Too Late is no such manual. It is simply one man’s views of the pleasures and potentials of old age based on a long life of adventure as a correspondent for the world’s leading magazines—and the lessons learned along the way from diverse groups of people, from the world’s most powerful leaders to some of the world’s most hapless individuals. Rowan interweaves quotes from experts in gerontology and other sage writers with his own experiences and insights. He addresses a spectrum of topics, including the subjectivity of the label “old,” the importance of optimism, and the fight to maintain independence as the years go by. He also encourages retirees to start a second career or activity, naming the Three E’s of Enthusiasm, Exertion, and Energy as the keys to pursuing a new passion.

Chronicling the transformation of a socialite to powerful politician and diplomat, this account of a nonagenarian's unexpected career demonstrates that it is never too late for a determined woman to make a difference. The trajectory of Anne Blair Clark's life took an unexpected detour into politics late in her life. Born into a wealthy and reserved American family, the first 50 years were lived in a predictable fashion—as an heir to the Coates & Clark thread fortune, she was raised in rarified atmosphere. Summoned home from Smith College after her freshman year—since her father did not approve of educated women—she did not become politically active until her 50s when she observed firsthand the injustices of the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. While serving in the New Jersey senate, she developed a reputation as a no-nonsense politico who refused to let outdated stereotypes or old-boy alliances deter her. During the Carter administration she became involved at the national level, serving in several positions including director of the office of U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Relief, and as President Carter's appointee as the first female ambassador to New Zealand.

But as much as he still carries the scars of that betrayal, he cannot ignore the stirring feelings within his heart. And soon, both Maude and Luke realize that perhaps it is never too late for true love. But even as they finally come together, there are those who will do anything to keep them apart . . .

A Prosecutor's Story of Justice in the Medgar Evars Case

In June 12, 1963, Mississippi's fast-rising NAACP leader Medgar Evers was gunned down by a white supremacist named Byron De La Beckwith. Beckwith escaped conviction twice at the hands of all-white Southern juries, and his crime went unpunished for more than three decades. Now, from Bobby DeLaughter, one of the most celebrated prosecutors in modern American law, comes the blistering account of his remarkable crusade in 1994 finally to bring the assassin of Medgar Evers to justice. This is the fascinating, real-life story of the assistant district attorney -- played by Alec Baldwin in Rob Reiner's Ghosts of Mississippi -- who brought closure to one of the darkest chapters of the civil rights movement. When the district attorney's office in Jackson, Mississippi, decided to reopen the case, the obstacles in its way were overwhelming: missing court records; transcripts that were more than thirty years old; original evidence that had been lost; new testimony that had to be taken regarding long-ago events; and the perception throughout the state that a reprosecution was a futile endeavor. But step by painstaking step, DeLaughter and his team overcame the obstacles and built their case. With taut prose that reads like a great detective thriller, Never Too Late is a page-turner of the very highest order. It charts the course of a country lawyer who, concerned about the collective soul of his community and the nature of American justice in general, dared to revisit a thirty-one-year-old case -- one so incendiary that everyone warned him not to touch it -- and win a long-overdue conviction. DeLaughter's success in this trial stands today as a landmark in the annals of criminal prosecution, and this bracing first-person account brings the saga to life as never before.
