Review

As improvements in medical science and living standards ensure that most of us now live to be old. How do we make sure that we age well-that we are 'evergreen'? That is the question at the heart of Andrew Scott's striking new book, which argues persuasively that aging is as big a challenge for humanity as climate change or artificial intelligence. Scott has some wise suggestions as to how exactly we can do it -- Niall Ferguson, author of THE ASCENT OF MONEY

Finally, a manifesto to guide the longevity revolution . . . A revelation on every page. This should be required reading for every physician and politician. On almost every page, I found myself saying, "Really, I didn't know that!" -- David Sinclair, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School, author of New York Times bestseller LIFESPAN

Inspiring, enlightening and uplifting, The Longevity Imperative demands a radical rethink of aging by putting forward a blueprint for how to live well today, tomorrow and in the future. A wake up call for business leaders and politicians, and a must read for anyone who wants a life well lived -- Noreena Hertz, author of THE LONELY CENTURY

The world is undergoing an unparalleled demographic change. We are witnessing not just aging, but a longevity revolution as billions around the world are set to live longer, healthier lives. This engaging book does not just draw attention to this underappreciated transformation. It also outlines how we need to change our economy, with an "evergreening" strategy that allows people to flourish many times during their lives, and remake our norms and institutions. This is a must-read book with an important message and many lessons -- Daron Acemoglu, author of POWER AND PROGRESS

Once in a while, a book comes along that resets our thinking - this certainly does that! It is an important work will stimulate you to rethink your own, and our, collective future -- Linda Yueh, author of THE GREAT CRASHES: LESSONS FROM GLOBAL MELTDOWNS AND HOW TO PREVENT THEM

In every sense, longevity is the opportunity of our lifetime. The "evergreen agenda", brilliantly and compellingly set out in this book, provides the key to unlocking this opportunity for the benefit of individuals, economies and societies alike -- Andy Haldane, former Chief Economist at Bank of England, CEO Royal Society of the Arts

In this striking book, Scott outlines why changing how we age is so important, what needs to be done to succeed and just how large the potential gains are to both individuals and nations

-- Nouriel Roubini, author of MEGATHREATS

The good news is that, globally, we're living longer, healthier lives than ever before - the even better news is that Scott has written the perfect guidebook to this brave new older world . . . The Longevity Imperative shows us how we should reshape our thinking, and create a more optimistic, happier, healthier and wealthier future together. Whether you're a government planning for the future of education, healthcare and public finances, or an individual wondering what extended lives might hold for your family and your pension, you can't afford not to read this -- Andrew Steele, author of AGELESS

Wide ranging yet personal, The Longevity Imperative definitively places population aging on the very short list of megatrends that will transform how we live tomorrow -- Joe Coughlin, founder and director of the MIT AgeLab

An extremely important book addressing one of the most important phenomena the human race has ever encountered, that is the ability to live longer and healthier lives . . . you must read this book -- Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University

Andrew Scott is uniquely positioned to explore the opportunities and challenges of longer lives in the 21st century . . . Scott paints a picture of a range of possibilities that will emerge from scientific discoveries and technological advances. He also argues that if we change the way we live, longer lives can greatly improve the quality of life at all ages. The lessons Scott teaches readers will not only educate them but introduce them to a consummate storyteller and remarkable man -- Laura Carstensen, Director of the Stanford Center on Longevity

A must read for anyone concerned about the world. There are issues we should all be advocates for and the Longevity Imperative is right up there with climate change and geopolitics. It is equally important as those and without someone of Andrew's ability writing about it we would be none the wiser. Please read and please talk about this -- Jim Mellon, Chairman of Manx Financial Group
