So how old were some of late bloomers when they did there best work?
Consider Harry Bernstein. Harry Bernstein was devastated after the death of his wife. To help him cope, the 93 year old wrote The Invisible Wall which is a memoir about his childhood. The book became a huge success. It was published when Mr. Bernstein was 96 years old.
“If I had not lived until I was 90, I would not have been able to write this book… It just could not have been done even when I was 10 years younger. I wasn’t ready.”
— Harry Bernstein
