This book deserves to be a best-seller. It is challenging and informative. The data are compelling and needs to be taken seriously by individuals, companies and government. Action is needed to make sure we all fully understand the impact of an ageing population, whether it wishes to retire or remain in / return to the workplace. Stark choices need to be made and this book leaves no stone unturned (apologies for cliché). We simply cannot continue to maintain the status quo or we will all be down the dustpipe!!
