'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
We are living longer and healthier lives which creates momentous challenges. But as this wonderful book points out, it also presents huge opportunities, ranging from changes in how we invest in our education, how we work, consume, form our social lives and even govern ourselves. This thought-provoking book is a must-read -- Daron Acemoglu, Institute Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of 'Why Nations Fail'
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'
