Reviews

"Is this time different? Most economists say "no" - we've adapted to many technological revolutions before. In contrast, Jeff says "yes". And thus begins a journey of ideas as he takes the reader on a tour de force, making his case for why that's so and sharing revelations from his personal relationships with tech industry leaders along the way. To harness the power of technology for good, we need to understand how it is linked to humanity. In a sweeping analysis that draws upon economics, science, innovation, politics, psychology, sociology, and business, Jeff offers an intriguing thesis predicated on the deflationary impact of technological advance coupled with increasingly easy credit. True to his impulse as an entrepreneur - a thinker, but also a doer - he concludes with a call to action. Business leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and youth committed to working towards a brighter future should read this book."--Ajay Agrawal, Professor at the University of Toronto and Founder of the Creative Destruction Lab "As someone who understands the exponential rate that technology is advancing, Jeff Booth has a unique ability to connect the dots to something bigger in this must read book. Few books offer a more succinct, provocative, and enlightening view of the world as it is today, and what it could be tomorrow. Your world view will transform instantly."
--Salim Ismail, Founding Executive Director, Singularity University and bestselling author of Exponential Organizations
