Product description

Review

Optimistic and intriguing.--Steven Pearlstein

Fascinating.--Andrew Leonard

Maddeningly reasonable and readable.--Thomas Claburn

Offers important insights into how digital technologies are transforming our economy, a process that has only just begun.--Reid Hoffman, cofounder/chairman of LinkedIn and coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Start-up of You

In this optimistic book Brynjolfsson and McAfee clearly explain the bounty that awaits us from intelligent machines. But they argue that creating the bounty depends on finding ways to race with the machine rather than racing against the machine. That means people like me need to build machines that are easy to master and use. Ultimately, those who embrace the new technologies will be the ones who benefit most.--Rodney Brooks, chairman and CTO of Rethink Robotics, Inc

What globalization was to the economic debates of the late 20th century, technological change is to the early 21st century. Long after the financial crisis and great recession have receded, the issues raised in this important book will be central to our lives and our politics.--Lawrence H. Summers, Charles W. Eliot University Professor at Harvard University

An important book on the technology-driven opportunities and challenges we all face in the next decade. Anyone who wants to understand how amazing new technologies are transforming our economy should start here.--Austan Goolsbee, professor of economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers

A masterful job of exploring both the promise of computer technology and its profound societal impact.--Carl Bass, CEO of Autodesk

My favorite book so far of 2014. Both hopeful...and realistic.--Joshua Kim

After reading this book, your world view will be flipped: you'll see that collective intelligence will come not only from networked brains but also from massively connected and intelligent machines.--Nicholas Negroponte, cofounder of the MIT Media Lab, founder of One Laptop per Child, and author of Being Digital
