"The most important thing about The End of Jobs is that entrepreneurship is not a choice you can make at your leisure.
This is something that is actually happening. The train is leaving the station. You have to either jump on the train or lose your chance forever.
Now is the time and Taylor's book describes exactly how to do it."
James Altucher, Best-selling author of Choose Yourself
About the Author
Taylor spent the last three years meeting with hundreds of entrepreneurs from Los Angeles to Vietnam, Brazil to New York, and worked with dozens of them, in industries from cat furniture to dating, helping them to grow their businesses. Regardless of the industry, age, race, country, or gender, one simple fact stood out: entrepreneurship was dramatically more accessible, profitable, and safer… while jobs were riskier and less profitable than the public is typically (mis)led to believe. Based on hundreds of interactions and and dozens of recent books and studies, he wrote The End of Jobs to show others how they could invest in entrepreneurship to create more freedom, meaning, and wealth in their lives. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The End of Jobs presents an even more compelling argument on how the traditional education, career and asset accumulation script is failing. Not just failing a generation of Millennials who can't get professional jobs after 4 years and tens or hundreds of thousands of college debt, but all workers. Pearson presents the historical contexts of work throughout history, showing how these paradigms each crumbled as a result of power shifts from Monarchies to Banks to Corporations. Today, the power shift has moved from the Corporation to the Individual, and as such, a "job" in the traditional sense is doomed.
After laying the groundwork for this theory, Pearson then presents actionable steps to hedge these risks and attain freedom. Like The Four Hour Work Week, there are also specific strategies and tactics. With the rate at which digital innovation moves, it's difficult to keep these tactics timeless. But the concepts of the "Stair Step Method" and Apprenticeships will hold any fledgling entrepreneur in good stead for years to come. I for one will use it and the accompanying bonus material as a knowledgebase in my own business and personal processes.
There is a somewhat derogatory term, the Wantrepreneur: a person who gorges on entrepreneurial philosophy and strategies but is yet to pull the trigger and go out on a limb themselves. Wantrepreneurship is a necessary stage in the journey - you must first decide that being an Entrepreneur is something worth caring about. The End of Jobs provides the mission as well as the toolkit to take those first steps.
To be clear, this is not just a tactics-based "how to start a business" handbook for newbies. Nor is it insiders-only philosophical read for established business owners. It's the necessary balance of age-old philosophical theories, real-world examples of successful entrepreneurs, and nitty-gritty strategies and tactics that can create a catalyst for change: not only the WHY, but the HOW and WHEN (i.e. right now)!
Who should read this book:
• Young people wondering what to do with their lives
• Parents wondering about their children’s future and worried about not being able to pay for their college education.
• Anyone looking for a smart way to respond to the question, “When are you getting a job?”
• Those recently downsized and looking for work
I highly recommend this masterpiece and I look forward to reading more from Taylor Pearson.
There are many books where you just have to read the title and you therefore have read the entire book. At first, I thought "The End of Jobs" would be the same way. But fortunately for me, I gave the book a chance and have not regretted it. Taylor gives it his all in this book and you will undoubtedly get so much more than just a "jobs are dead" message repeated over and over again ad infinitum. This book is uplifting and practical, providing templates from Taylor's website and strategies for you to employ today, in 2015, to bring yourself into the new world that we live in.
Taylor has declared in his writing that he aspires to be a thought leader in this era, and after reading his book, I can say without doubt that he is well on his way.
A must-read for this era!
