What will your 100-year life look like? Does the thought of working for 60 or 70 years fill you with dread? Or can you see the potential for a more stimulating future as a result of having so much extra time?
Many of us have been raised on the traditional notion of a three-stage approach to our working lives: education, followed by work and then retirement. But this well-established pathway is already beginning to collapse. Life expectancy is rising, final-salary pensions are vanishing and increasing numbers of people are juggling multiple careers.
Whether you are 18, 45 or 60, you will need to do things very differently from previous generations and learn to structure your life in completely new ways. The 100-Year Life is here to help. Drawing on the unique pairing of their experience in psychology and economics, Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott offer a broad-ranging analysis as well as a raft of solutions, showing how to rethink your finances, your education, your career and your relationships and create a fulfilling 100-year life.
The 100-Year Life is a wake-up call that describes what to expect and considers the choices and options that you will face. It is also fundamentally a call to action for individuals, politicians, firms and governments and offers the clearest demonstration that a 100-year life can be a wonderful and inspiring one.

I made myself listen to one hour but then gave up
I had high hopes from the title but I learnt nothing on any level
To be negative is to fail so I will not!
They do not sound as if they are are enjoying it either
"Just a thought on 100 years life."
This is not how to book and in my opinion a bit slow futuristic view on 100 years life.
If you wants practical advices then this book is not the right one for u.
"not enough substance for a book"
This is a drawn out treatment of a basic idea that we'll live longer, and should perhaps switch from a 3-stage mental model of our life to a 3-,4- or 5-stage model. It's all true and reasonable, just kind of stretched too thin.
