** The 100-Year Life by Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott

The authors of The 100-Year Life: Living and Working in an Age of Longevity explore the consequences of very long life spans, focusing on developing a new way to organize one’s working life away from the traditional three-step model of education, work, and retirement and towards a more flexible mix of all three, adapting to a life with multiple careers (and apparently no “real” jobs, just a series of gigs).

The scenarios are a little rigid but the ideas are interesting.
