9780091939366: Amortality: The Pleasures and Perils of Living Agelessly

Does your real age match the age you feel?

When do we reach middle age?

When, if ever, are we old?

The way we age and the way we perceive age has changed radically. As we embrace new experiences, relationships and gadgets, we barely stop to look at our watches let alone consider whether our behaviour is 'age appropriate'.

In this provocative and timely book, Catherine Mayer looks at the forces that created amortality - the term she coined to describe the phenomenon of living agelessly. As she follows this social epidemic through generations and across continents, she reveals its profound impact on society, our careers, our families and ourselves.

Why be defined by numbers?

Are you amortal?

Review:

"Brilliantly documents The End of Growing Up" ( Oliver James)

"Clever, witty and absorbing, Amortality is a much-needed anatomy of our profound malaise about ageing. Its charms will never fade." ( David Baddiel)

"A smart, entertaining and winningly astringent look at a very important topic" ( William Gibson, Bestselling science-fiction author)

"Mayer has most acutely struck a nerve. Extraordinarily revealing." ( Jon Snow, Broadcaster)

"This spooky sounding condition turns out to be very nice, I'm definitely hoping I've got it'" ( Matthew Collings, Artist and Cultural Commentator)

Book Description:

A timely, provocative book about the ageing revolution and the radical shift in how we perceive age and growing older.
