Scott and Lynda Gratton have been predicting how society must adapt for years. Now they have a post-pandemic road map for us all' Sunday TimesSmart 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. The New Long Life is the essential guide to a longer, smarter, happier life.

In this fresh and striking book, Scott and Gratton address the central question of our age: how to achieve human flourishing at a time of radical new technology and longer lives. The optimism oozes out, as unlike most attempts to tackle this question, they never forget that, done right, new technology and longer lives are forces for good
Rt Hon Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care
