  • Approachable and fundamentally optimistic

    This is a very well written short and easy to approach read for anyone, and tackles the spectre of what everyone has been dreading about where everything seems to be leading: an unprecedented loss of jobs due to optimization, automation. Although it might seem at first that Yang paints a bleak picture, this is a fundamentally optimistic book filled with great ideas about ways we can creatively reorganize ourselves to adapt to this future. I would caution readers against pre-judging this book in light of Andrew's own political activity and affiliations - these ideas are radical for anyone of any political background, but they really give the reader a framework to start thinking about how we can even begin to deal with what awaits us. Highly recommended!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Thought provoking book

    This well written book describes many the challenges that the job market and broader American economy are likely to experience up and down the income ladder due to automation. It is well considered and research. After this, her gets into policy proposals, most notably universal basic income. I found all of this informative. If I had something I wish the book had done, it's that it would have been more detailed and precise in linking the policy proposals with the challenges (for insurance, why $1,000 a month and not $800 or $1,500). Even that hai however might be informative as a reflection of the state of conversation about universal basic income. I'd really recommend this book to your hoping to learn about automation and universal basic income.

    Thanks for your feedback!
