Ford writes on key technologies like IBM's Watson and describes how they are and will likely further impact jobs. His understanding is excellent and his analysis is probably sound.
In the latter half of the book Ford concentrates on economic implications. This half is very poor because Ford clearly is a layman in economics. Ford essentially throws together erratic thoughts based on his left-oriented political lens which detract from the main focus of the book. In his defense he does mention other viewpoints on these contentious issues - but why put politics in a tech book? Thankfully you can skip through this.
