'Dr Anna Dixon has written a must-read for anyone interested in the future of ageing. Learn from one of the best informed about an issue, and opportunity, that is facing us all.'
Andy Briggs, Head of FTSE 100 life insurer Phoenix Group
'A very important book'
Sir Muir Gray

The Age of Ageing Better?
takes a radically different view of what our ageing society means. Dr Anna Dixon turns the misleading and depressing narrative of burden and massive extra cost of people living longer on its head and shows how our society could thrive if we started thinking differently.

This book shines a spotlight on how as a society we're currently failing to respond to the shifting age profile o and what needs to change. Examining key areas of society including health, financial security, where and how people live, and social connections, Anna Dixon presents a refreshingly optimistic vision for the future that could change the way we value later life in every sense.
