    In Age Is Just a Number, Dara Torres 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. A truly self-made legend, her story will resonate with women of all ages and with anyone daring to entertain a seemingly impossible dream.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't let others define your limits or deter you from pursuing your passions


    Any additional comments?

    It was great to hear all of the details of her life and the obstacles she had to overcome. The only suggestion would have been relating more to the reader on how the reader could take steps to improve themselves and really live the slogan "age is just a number". I think some readers will say that worked for Dara because she was always a phenomenal athlete and so won't relate as well.
