About this deal

She has recently written her autobiography, which details her earlier life as an actress and dancer – and her first novel, In the Fast Lane, is shortlisted for the People’s Book Prize.

Dame Esther 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. Playing sport can get you places I grew up in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a small fishing village just outside of Charleston. I remember air raid sirens and practicing putting our gas masks on under the dining room table, and then I remember victory in Europe and the news announcer declaring the end of the war on the radio.

The doyenne of consumer champions recounts her life via an A-Z of advice she has gathered throughout an extraordinary life. 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. I listened, nodded and went to work for someone else who immediately gave me a job as a director and then as a producer and a presenter, which I did for 25 years.

It’s an easy to dip-into miscellany of observation and tips for living, penned by one of the most influential TV journalists Britain has ever embraced! He has recently released his latest book, Generation Cherry, offering inspiration for people approaching retirement.
