Rest Less Interview with Andrew J Scott

Leading authority on longevity and an esteemed economist

Longevity is a wonderful thing and at its core we’re all leading longer, healthier lives. Yet too often this has been portrayed as a negative.

Stuart Lewis (Founder and CEO of Rest Less) talks to leading economist and co-author of the global best seller “The 100 Year Life: Living and Working in an Age of Longevity”, Professor Andrew J Scott. 

In a wide ranging and thought provoking interview, they cover the genesis of the 100 Year Life, the importance of re-framing longevity into a positive, the stark inequalities of the ageing experience across the UK and the impact of COVID-19 on the longevity agenda.

Andrew also talks about his new book, written pre-pandemic but with a very prescient title – “The New Long Life: A Framework for Flourishing in a Changing World” – which covers the intersection of longevity with rapid technological advancement.

    Than you, that was so interesting and so true. As a healthy 60 year old with a multi dimensional career path I find myself out to graze. And yet have so much experience that I can offer in the workplace.

    Thank you Andrew for such a thought provoking interview. Longevity is certainly something that interests me – partly because like everybody else , as we get older we have to adjust and plan for our future to stay healthy in mind and body . It feels like being a pioneer in a new and undiscovered land with not much to go on in terms of role models or any narrative that has gone before. I will definitely read your book.
