About the Book

The centenarians highlighted in this wonderful book are noted only for the length but for the depth and breadth of their lives. In their century of living these fascinating people were able to prove that an individual can make a difference. From music greats Irving Berlin and Eubie Blake to political figures Alfred Landon and Madame Chiang Kai-shek to icons of the American scene George Burns and Rose Kennedy to the trailblazing Delany sisters, Centenarians celebrates the indomitable spirit of humanity. “People are living longer nowadays, which is great. And it appears that more and more people are achieving the centenarian stage of their lives. If you don’t believe me, just ask Willard Scott.” Bob Hope
