2015's Business Book of the Year
Since 2005, Financial Times & McKinsey has awarded the business book of the year to the book that provides "the most compelling and enjoyable insight into modern business issues". For tackling the question, "can accelerating technology disrupt our entire economic system to the point where a fundamental restructuring is required?", Rise of the Robots has been named the 2015 recipient of the award. It argues that unless we radically reassess the fundamentals of how our economy works, we could have an enormous unemployed population whose jobs have been rendered superfluous by automated and intelligent machines.
