It describes the dissemination of knowledge, as well as how the global economy will develop.
For professionals, such as lawyers, accountants, architechts and economists, this book should answer a type of question that plague us: Why do we have a feeling that our traditional working method is on the decline, threatened? How can we adapt? What should we do?
It gives us answers to all that and more.
A good buy. Highly reccomend it.
Avaliações mais úteis de consumidores na Amazon.com
It is best read (I think) in 30-45 minute segments with pauses to digest what you’ve read and to reflect upon your own thinking.
The primary criticism of this book (and its predecessors) is that it represents “doom and gloom.” In some respects, that is true. The authors do indeed believe that a radical shift is coming and that the unprepared may not fare well if they don’t change how they think.
The book suggests that we need to “race with the machines” rather than fight against them (surely a losing battle). As the book notes, machines are becoming increasingly capable. There is an extensive discussion (fascinating) of the second generation of artificial intelligence (AI) which examines the ongoing development of IBM’s Watson and its deployment in a host of professions.
Is it a certain amount of work to read this book, which tackles a complex subject in great depth? Assuredly. But well worth the effort. The authors take great pain to leaven their research with colorful quotes and statistics from others and to translate the complex subjects into more digestible and sometimes humorous tidbits.
Any professional who is worried about the future would be well-advised to read this book thoughtfully.
My only beef with this book is the length. I think the overall argument could just as well been made with about 100 fewer pages.
