He also admits that his “competitive spirit” has aided his determination to keep going, and at one point admits that he has his eye on the record for the oldest person to go skydiving, which currently stands at 103. It’s hard not to finish the book, counter-intuitively, with the feeling that its 100-year-old author was cut off in his prime. But at least it gives us a chance to spend a bit longer in his company, to enjoy his wry humour again and to understand how his apparently ordinary life equipped him for his final extraordinary year.
