Until they turn 25 years old, most individuals are really only life “interns.” Full life begins once we enter our mid-20s.
At its core, that is what Robert L. Dilenscneider’s latest book, Nailing It: How History’s Awesome Twentysomethings Got It Together, is about.
Dilenschneider, an accomplished author and communications consultant, tells the story of 25 well-known personalities when they were 25 years olds — from Mozart to Edith Paif, Albert Einstein to Steve Jobs — and the one defining trait they shared on their path to immortality.
To help interview Dilenschneider, host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart enlisted his multi-talented daughter, Avital, who not coincidentally, turns 25 years old this week. As Avital points out, there is a great deal to be learned from history, no matter your age.
