Beyond Age Segregation
How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive? Encore.org CEO Marc Freedman tells the story of his 30-year quest to answer that question in his new book, How to Live Forever: The Enduring Power of Connecting the Generations. His answer: Uniting the generations. It’s what young people want and need, and it’s the surest route to happiness and well-being in later life.

Longer description of the book
In How to Live Forever, Encore.org founder and CEO Marc Freedman tells the story of his thirty-year quest to answer some of contemporary life’s most urgent questions: With so many living so much longer, what is the meaning of the increasing years beyond 50? How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive? How do we find happiness when we know life is long and time is short?

In a poignant book that defies categorization, Freedman finds insights by exploring purpose and generativity, digging into the drive for longevity and the perils of age segregation, and talking to social innovators across the globe bringing the generations together for mutual benefit. He finds wisdom in stories from young and old, featuring ordinary people and icons like jazz great Clark Terry and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

But the answers also come from stories of Freedman’s own mentors—a sawmill worker turned surrogate grandparent, a university administrator who served as Einstein’s driver, a cabinet secretary who won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and Freedman’s own father, a gym teacher who spent his retirement years organizing track meets for elementary school students.

How to Live Forever is a deeply personal call to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us.
