  • Description or summary of the book: What do you do next if you have walked on the moon? How do you follow the first perfect 10 in Olympic history? How do you move on after surviving a plane crash? Some people will forever be defined by a single moment. Chris Wright has travelled the globe tracking down a remarkable assortment of high achievers. From the astronaut who turned to painting to the World Cup-winning footballer who became an undertaker, each has grappled with the challenge of finding meaning once their fame has faded. In a series of revealing interviews with strikingly contrasting personalities, we discover Chuck Yeager's irascibility, John McCarthy's extraordinary even-tempered decency, the tough practicality of Nadia Comaneci and the fastidiously structured mind of mountaineer Reinhold Messner. Though very different, all these oddly feted individuals have one trait in common: after their appointment with destiny the did not spend the rest of their lives looking backwards. No More Worlds to Conquer explains why.
