Mega 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).
