No More Worlds to Conquer: Sixteen People Who Defined Their Time - And What They Did Next by Chris Wright

What do you do with the rest of your life, after you've achieved brilliance at an early age? This is the question posed by celebrated-journalist Chris Wright to some of the most renowned adventurers, athletes and politicians of the twentieth century.

What happens if you are an athlete or gymnast and your career peaks at 14, like Nadia Comaneci, who scored the first perfect 10 in Olympic competition - and the second, and the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. What is the next challenge for the likes of adventurer Reinhold Messner, when you have climbed all the really tall mountains? Where do you take your career, when you've achieved the impossible and walked on the moon?

In this far-reaching and illuminating book, Chris Wright travels the globe, talking to Apollo astronauts, record breakers, world leaders and prisoners of war, people whose defining moments came early in their life, and asks a rare but captivating question: what happened next?
