Customer Review

23 September 2017
This is one of the most insightful books I’ve read yet which succinctly captures the pace at which technological advance is happening across both our home and work landscapes. And yet in spite of the speed at which new technology is being thrust upon us, there is little debate or conversation taking place as to whether these technologies actually act in our best interest, what we, as humans, are sacrificing as we adopt them and whether society actually benefits in the longer term.
Leonhard has clearly very carefully considered the ethical dilemmas around the widespread uptake of new and emerging technologies and takes, in my opinion, a sensitive and humanitarian approach towards these considerations. The balance between a clear passion for technology and a clear passion for the human goals of happiness, purpose and meaning is apparent from the outset and I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in what the future is most likely going to look like and also what future they want to build for themselves.
