Summary

A practical guide to how we can flourish as longevity and technology change our world, from the internationally best-selling 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. Both a personal road map and a primer for governments, corporations and colleges, The New Long Life is the essential guide to a longer, smarter, happier life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.
