it was amazing

I borrowed this one from the library, accidentally got some of my lunch on it and I'm secretly hoping the library makes me buy them a new one so I can keep this book. I feel like this is the most balanced book about the emerging group of creative workers I've read so far, explaining why they're necessary to the economy (and becoming more important) and why the rise of this group means the end of society as we've known it for the last 50 years or so (for good or bad).
