Who Can You Trust?

Who Can You Trust? How Technology Brought Us Together and Why It Might Drive Us Apart,
Rachel Botsman, Penguin, 2017 | First edition: November 2017.

100-year Life

The 100-year Life – Living and Working in An Age of Longevity,
Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott, Bloomsbury Business, 2017

The three phase life (education, employment, retirement) is history now: gone forever. Maybe we will have (learn, work, rest, learn, work, rest…).
