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.
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. How can you fashion a career and life path that defines you and your values and creates a shifting balance between work and leisure?

Comments about The 100-Year Life:
Medical professionals I have spoken with cite falling birth rate, poor diet of sub 40 yr olds and the obesity epidemic to name a few contra points which contradict the hypothesis on which this book is based. It's an interesting read...but there are lots of holes in the 'live to 130' arguments.
