"The Longevity Imperative" will be released 14 March in the UK and 23 April in the USA.

intro

We live at a unique time in human history. For the first time ever, the young and middle-aged can expect to live long enough to become old. That requires all of us, regardless of age, to behave differently. We need to ensure lives are not just longer but also healthy, productive and engaged for longer.

In a book of impressive sweep, Scott looks at the implications this brings for every aspect of life and how individuals and society can achieve a longevity agenda which keeps us ‘evergreen’.

 

about

“The Longevity Imperative” outlines the changes needed in our health system, the economy and the financial sector. It also looks at the critical cultural and political shifts that need to happen as we adapt to a new longevity era.

“The Longevity Imperative” demands you think of your life and the world around you totally differently to reflect this new reality. It points to how we can seize new and exciting opportunities to improve our culture, institutions, and individual lives in preparation for longer futures and a new era for humanity. It demands we move away from the negativity of an ageing society and elevate a longevity society, alongside climate change and AI, as a key factor determining our individual and collective future.

intro

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.

about

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?

· What are the most effective ways of boosting your physical and mental health over a longer and more dynamic lifespan?

· How can you make the most of your intangible assets – such as family and friends – as you build a productive, longer life?

· In a multiple-stage life how can you learn to make the transitions that will be so crucial and experiment with new ways of living, working and learning?

Shortlisted for the FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award and featuring a new preface, 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.

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

‘This important book will help reframe the global debate about how to help every citizen to flourish’ Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

about

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 and longevity have not been matched by supporting innovations to our social structures. In our era of unprecedented change, we haven’t yet discovered new ways of living and working and that’s creating a growing tension between our traditional patterns of behaviour and the world in which we live.

intro

Macroeconomics: Understanding the Global Economy, 3rd Edition  is to help students – and indeed anyone – understand contemporary and past economic events that shape the world we live in, and at a sophisticated level.  But it does so without focusing on mathematical techniques and models for their own sake.

Theory is taken seriously – so much so that the authors go to pains to understand the key aspects of theories in a way that will not put people off before they see how theories are useful to analyse issues.  The authors believe that theories are essential to better understand the world, thus the book includes a wealth of historic and current episodes and data to both see how theories can help interpret the world and also to judge their validity.

about

Economies today are very inter-connected; what happens in China matters pretty much everywhere; and what happens in one (even small) country in the euro zone has implications for the whole euro area and beyond, consequently Macroeconomics, 3rd Edition adopts a very international focus.
