Now, in Age Is Just a Number, Dara reveals how the dream of an Olympic comeback first came to her when she was months into her first, hard-won pregnancy. With humor and candor, Dara recounts how she returned to serious training while nursing her infant daughter and contending with her beloved father's long battle with cancer.
Dara talks frankly about diving back in for this comeback; about being an older athlete in a younger athlete's game; about competition, doubt, and belief; about working through pain and uncertainty; and finally about seizing the moment and, most important, never giving up. A truly self-made legend, her story will resonate with women of all ages and with anyone daring to entertain a seemingly impossible dream.

This is a beautiful recording of a fantastic book. It is written to reflect a couple of decades of personal, physical amd philosophical challenges. An inspiring story that accurately reflects the title. It is also a historical reflection of the evolution of swimming. Enjoy!

Overall I enjoyed it. It just ended. I replayed the ending a few times just to make sure I didn't accidentally fast forward.
I listened to it over the span of a week. Taking my time mostly. It don't believe it to be a reflection of how I perceived the story or narration. Mostly, I enjoyed savoring the motivational segments.
