Product description

Review

Brilliant, timely, original, well written and utterly terrifying. (Niall Ferguson Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History, Harvard University)

A fascinating and thought-provoking book . a brilliant read for individuals, but should be mandatory reading for our politicians. (Shirley Cramer CBE Chief Executive Officer, Royal Society for Public Health)

This timely, important, easy-to-read and intriguing book will make you pause and think, as well as better plan your life . Gratton and Scott's book is a wake-up call for individuals, organizations, governments and societies. (Boris Groysberg Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School)

The authors understand implicitly that not only is the world as we know it changing beyond all recognition, but the way we lead our lives too. This book could not be more timely or necessary. (Julia Hobsbawm Founder and CEO, Editorial Intelligence Ltd, and Honorary Visiting professor in Networking, Cass Business School)

This playfully original book . makes a compelling case that as our lives become longer and healthier, the future might just be very, very different from what we have known until now. (Daron Acemoglu Elizabeth and James Killian Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

[This] wonderful new book prepares us for the possibilities of this brave new world of longevity, and teaches us what it will take to thrive in it. (Professor Herminia Ibarra INSEAD)

Too many books bemoan the economic problems facing ageing societies. This splendid book is quite different . it should be read by anyone who wants to understand how life chances and choices will be transformed in a world where living beyond 100 will become the norm. (Lord Adair Turner Senior research Fellow of the Institute for new Economic Thinking, and previously Chairman of the UK Pensions Commission)

To understand how and why things might change, there can be nowhere better to start than with the fascinating The 100-Year Life. (Baronness Alison Wolf Sir Roy Griffiths Professor of Public Sector Management at King’s College, London)

Book Description

In this book, the authors show how living to 100 will have a profound effect on society and the economy, and result in a complete restructuring of everyone's professional and personal lives.
