ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS WE CAN GIVE ANOTHER GENERATION IS OUR EXPERIENCE, OUR WISDOM. Desmond Tutu

Multi award winning photographer and film maker Andrew Zuckerman has recorded the thoughts and ideas of fifty of the world’s most prominent over 65 year olds to reveal profound and honest portraits captured in their voices, their physical presence and the written word.

Dj slightly bumped on front top edge, lightly stained on bottom edge and slightly discol around all edges: Dj slightly creased on top back edge 40mm: 216pp with 50 biographies of high achievers all over 65 y o. ‘The Wisdom Film’ DVD intact and unopened at back of book: 215pp incl index: This is a confusing book to catalogue/ Many booksellers have not understood that it is a very heavy book and for this reason was published in various countries, by various publishers, probably more or less simultaneously. It appears that each country’s edition (impression ?) would have had a different dust jacket. For instance this S African edition has 7 thumbnail portraits on the front dj, of whom 5 are S African . There are another 36 portraits on the rear. The USA edition has Clint Eastwood on the front. The U K edition has Judi Dench on the front but both were published by Abrams. It appears that all editions had the same 50 biographies. In all cases, overseas postage would tend to be prohibitive. The book is also illustrative of how a ISBN could be misleading. This book has ISBN 9781919790756. My second copy (q v) has ISBN 9780733623509. The bottom line is that the book is nowhere near as rare (total 19 copies on offer as at Mar 2021) as some book dealers are valuing it. It remains valuable as a very worthwhile source of wisdom.
