Soft CoverMega-Life, by Ben-Shaul, follows his hugely successful Hebrew book, The Second Life Cycle – The New Education for Life Cycles and Careers, published in Israel which is noted for longevity rates among the highest in the Western world. The author describes a world in which we can already guarantee our children a “mega-life” — a much longer life than we have known — till now. With Western populations changing so drastically, the world as we know it is transforming before our very eyes. This book explains why there hasn’t been a grand psychological theory of aging for over 50 years and formulates a new and revolutionary definition of aging — different from the World Health Organization’s.
Since the publication of Mega-Life in 2011, Ben-Shaul has become the Israeli media’s leading expert on the effects of increasing longevity. He “tells you what no one has said in a long time — there’s time, for all of us, plenty of time . . . Ben-Shaul’s euphoria, I have to say, convinced me.” (R. Shaked. “7 Days” Supplement, Yediot Aharonot, Israel’s leading newspaper).
