There are at least two books that I think everyone should read: Software for the Brain and Robots Will Steal Your Job... (Both are also available as free downloads on the authors' websites.)

Having interviewed Federico, listened to a few of his talks, and read this, his first book, it is quite obvious to me that he is very intelligent, very eager to be unbiased, using scientific evidence wherever possible, and very knowledgeable.

The reason this book means so much to me, is because understanding the topics that Federico discusses is essential for humanity to make better decisions about where to go from here. I'm not particularly good at explaining these topics verbally, but now I can just say, "Read Robots Will Steal Your Job..."

The book covers how we can transition to a better world through open sourcing everything, but I would have liked it to have included more about the end goal. The good news is that Federico is planning to publish a new book this month, "A Tale of Two Futures," in which two scenarios will be presented, one where things have gone terribly wrong, and the other where things have amazingly right. Although it's a science fiction book, I think his goal is to give us an idea of where humanity is headed based on the choices we make today.

I blazed through this book in about a week, I think it's definitely worth your money and I really enjoyed the first two thirds of the book where it presents you with the situation we have at hand based on facts. So basically I would say the first two thirds are about explaining why robots will steal your job, and why it should be ok. The last third is dedicated on what you "should" do to survive the apocalypse... this is where I thought the book doesn't really bring added value. I think the only really good advice is to educate yourself, which is pretty obvious... un-qualified jobs will disappear so obviously you have to qualify yourself... other than that I didn't find the last part all that interesting. Still definitely worth a read though!

Format: Paperback
This book examines the various aspects of our economy and the patterns of increasing mechanization and exponential technology growth. Concluding with machines taking most if the jobs today, while foreshadowing two possible futures. One future involving the stifling of technological improvements and medicines to maintain an obsolete human workforce in job sectors that have little or no true contributional Merritt to society considering we can do more with machines and much less with human labor.
Around a little over a third of the end of the book is practical solutions on how to reduce dependence on money for needs such as food, energy
