    I spent five years as an engineer frustrated every time a co-worker did something incorrectly, or a factory worker did their job poorly, and started to say to myself "what I wouldn't give to have a bunch of robots doing their work". After reading this book, I understand that I am part of the problem. It is our humanity that makes life worth living. This book may have been written in 1989, but it prophecies the world we live in now to a chilling degree.

This book may have been written in 1989, but it prophecies the world we live in now to a chilling degree. That being said, technology does not need to be used to dehumanize, and there are clear areas where a synergy between humans and machines is better for both parties. I eagerly look forward to finding that space.

    Reading this was so weird because you're reading from 2016 or whatever, looking at a book set in the '80s where computers are just being introduced into the workplace. To any of us, this is common sense. We know things get done faster, cheaper and more efficiently, but at the time, so many people were resisting change. It makes me wonder, what are we resisting now that will soon be the future?

    Great book, far ahead of its time. I especially like when the author mentions the rise of a freelance/gig economy, keep in mind this book was written decades ago -- so many of the hot topics in today's digital economy are not new. Some of the case studies/individual interviews are kind of slow and boring. But I absolutely love when the author bridges some conclusions from her field work. Great book, far ahead of its time.
