An excellent short book that tells explains the current employment crisis in terms of the effects that technology has had on work. What I loved about this book was that they got right to the point, without wasting the reader's time with hundreds of pages of explanation and examples. There is just enough in this book to convince the reader that, yes, the computer and networked industrial revolution is happening and you should think seriously about what this means for your career, as well as for the types of government and educational policies that will ensure a successful transition from the old economy.
