The Authors

“We’re immensely proud of how much attention The 100-Year Life has received, and not least that it has successfully positioned the longevity debate to be about being younger for longer rather than older for longer. And this is only the beginning – interest is building from all sides, business, individuals and government alike. We invite you to check out the latest news about the book, read stories from individuals who are shaping their lives in multiple stages, and to browse all the coverage the book has got.”
