Editorial Reviews

Review

"We're entering unknown territory in the quest to reduce labor costs. The AI revolution is doing to white collar jobs what robotics did to blue collar jobs. Race Against the Machine is a bold effort to make sense of the future of work.  No one else is doing serious thinking about a force that will lead to a restructuring of the economy that is more profound and far-reaching than the transition from the agricultural to the industrial age. Brynjolfsson and McAfee have hit the ball out of the park on this one.  It's a book anyone concerned with either business, or more broadly, the future of our society, simply must read." - Tim O'Reilly

"This is, quite simply, the best book yet written on the interaction of digital technology, employment and organization.   Race Against the Machine is meticulously researched, sobering, practical and, ultimately, hopeful.  It is an extremely important contribution to the debate about how we ensure that every human being benefits from the digital revolution that is still gathering speed.   If you read only one book on technology in the next 12 months, it should be this one." -Gary Hamel

"In social science inquiry, we badly need the right people asking, and answering, the right questions.  That's precisely what Brynjolfsson and McAfee do in this important treatise on the intersection of technology and the economy.  Moreover, they're tackling the most important question of the present and the future: where are the new jobs going to come from?" - Jared Bernstein

"Race Against the Machine is a portrait of the digital world - a world where competition, labor and leadership are less important than collaboration, creativity and networks." - Nicholas Negroponte
