    "The Talent Revolution: Longevity and the Future of Work persuasively makes the case for a transformation in the way companies think about age and work. Taylor and Lebo offer a ground-breaking perspective on the intergenerational workforce and practical advice that will be invaluable to any organization seeking to understand and profit from its older workers."


    Benjamin Nadler, Chief Operating Officer at Sensei Labs

    "This book turns thinking about the aging workforce on its head. It’s a must-read to tap the potential productivity of a truly intergenerational workforce, and to make companies more profitable."


    Ali Velshi, Senior Economic and Business Correspondent, NBC News, and Co-anchor, Velshi & Ruhle, MSNBC

    "This is a very important book, one that sheds a light on an extremely significant management issue that every organization in the Western world has to face: continued engagement of older workers. As the CEO of a knowledge based business, one where experience is vital for the ongoing benefit of customers and the organization's competitive advantage, maintaining and extending the organization's capabilities is a significant challenge that demands more creative thinking and solutions. The Talent Revolution provides great insights and a path forward."


    David Blinick, CEO Blinco Systems Inc.
