Waterstones Says

A game-changing read on ageing and social innovation, The New Long Life serves up a positive vision of the ways in which ways new technologies can help individuals, employers and governments to navigate future challenges and improve quality of life.

A practical guide to how we can positively adapt to a changing world, from the internationally bestselling authors of The 100-Year Life.

Smart new technologies. Longer, healthier lives. Human progress has risen to great heights, but at the same time it has prompted anxiety about where we're heading. Are our jobs under threat? If we live to 100, will we ever really stop working? And how will this change the way we love, manage and learn from others?

One thing is clear: advances in technology have not been matched by the necessary innovation to our social structures. In our era of unprecedented change, we haven't yet discovered new ways of living.

Drawing from the fields of economics and psychology, Andrew J. Scott and Lynda Gratton offer a simple framework based on three fundamental principles (Narrate, Explore and Relate) to give you the tools to navigate the challenges ahead. The New Long Life is the essential guide to a longer, smarter, happier life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A manifesto for better later years - Financial Times

Wonderful . . . This thought-provoking book is a must-read - Daron Acemoglu, Institute Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of 'Why Nations Fail'

‘The London Business School professors Andrew J. Scott and Lynda Gratton have been predicting how society must adapt for years. Now they have a post-pandemic road map for us all - Sunday Times

In this fresh and striking book, Scott and Gratton address the central question of our age: how to achieve human flourishing at a time of radical new technology and longer lives. The optimism oozes out, as unlike most attempts to tackle this question, they never forget that, done right, new technology and longer lives are forces for good - Rt Hon Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care

The combination of rapid technological change and ageing are causing deep anxiety about the future. Gratton and Scott show us how social ingenuity by individuals, employers and governments can turn sources of fear into sources of hope - Dame Minouche Shafik, Director, London School of Economics and Political Science

Stimulating, insightful and inspirational. This book is an essential work on how longevity and technology affect us all. Read it to not only learn about ageing and robots, but also how to use that knowledge to positively transform our lives - Linda Yueh, author of 'The Great Economists: How Their Ideas Can Help Us Today'

A fascinating book grappling with a critical topic: how to embrace technological change and longevity. A recommended read for business leaders with the job of nurturing a happy and productive workforce - Anne Richards, CEO, Fidelity International

Brilliant, timely, original, well written and utterly terrifying - Niall Ferguson, Praise for 'The 100-Year Life'

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, Praise for 'The 100-Year Life'
