This will be one of the important books you will ever read,as you prepare to negotiate an uncertain future for yourself, for your retirement and for your children's future.
The book is well researched, no doubt. Absence of behavioural science inputs - both for coping and for analysing the behavioural tendencies that push technology entrepreneurs to keep pushing the boundaries of AI and their encroachment into human domain - is a disappointment. That shows in the progress of the book from engrossing to plodding as it approaches the end.
The policy prescriptions are sincere as there is a genuine attempt to think through implications, implementation issues and unintended consequences. But, one cannot escape the conclusion that bolder thinking is missing.
All told, still a very important book. I am glad I read it.
