About the Author
Camilla Cavendish is an award-winning Times columnist and a radio and TV broadcaster, who is well-known for her campaigning journalism. She was the head of the Downing Street Policy Unit under Prime Minister David Cameron and she now sits in the House of Lords and continues to write high-profile journalism pieces for The Financial Times and The Sunday Times. There is nobody better qualified to write this timely and necessary book.
‘Extra Time should perhaps be called “About Time” because it is a long overdue and brilliant counterpoint to all those pervasive arguments that our ageing societies will be poorer and sadder. Growing old, as individuals and nations, need not mean growing frailer and duller. Camilla Cavendish has written an empowering and important manifesto for how an older society can be a better society.’ ROBERT PESTON
‘You will want to read this book: it is about how we could all grow older and stay fitter. Camilla Cavendish has trawled labs across America, Japan and Europe to discover the latest developments in the many ways of ageing… she sets out her findings with clarity and enthusiasm. More than this she addresses the social and political dimensions of how best to share these benefits among us all. A welcome and optimistic voice.’ JOAN BAKEWELL
‘In this remarkable and frequently optimistic book Camilla Cavendish sets out what is part warning and part redefinition of what it is to live longer. Her statistics and her observations of how different rich and poor will age are breathtaking. But it is above all her bravery in challenging our very notions of ageing that makes this a must read book for all those struggling to understand the enormity of change that longer life now brings.’ EMILY MAITLIS
‘Extra Time by Camilla Cavendish is an optimistic, uplifting and practical book about the huge potential for humans to live not just longer lives, but more fulfilling lives. An inspiring and essential read.’ ARIANNA HUFFINGTON, FOUNDER & CEO, THRIVE
‘A brilliant analysis of how to live longer better’ SIMON JENKINS
