What Mohamed El-Erian says

An optimistic analysis of the breathtaking technological changes that are changing both the workplace and our homes; provides us with a terrific feel for our rapidly changing world, including what it takes to better understand and navigate it.

What Dominic Barton says

I enjoyed how the authors describe that, unlike the Industrial Revolution, the digital revolution has created technology that replaces human labor instead of complementing it. The authors urge that this unprecedented pace of innovation should both excite us and prompt us to reflect on our values and choices.

What Jeffrey Sachs says

An important contribution to the economics of the new age of robotics and artificial intelligence.

What Marc Andreessen says

Brynjolfsson and McAfee are right; we are on the cusp of a dramatically different world brought on by technology. The Second Machine Age is the book for anyone who wants to thrive in it.  I’ll encourage all of our entrepreneurs to read it, and hope their competitors don’t.
