In nearly every industry, smart machines are replacing human labor. It's not just factory jobs - automated technologies are handling people's investments, diagnosing illnesses, and analyzing written documents. If we humans are going to endure, Edward Hess and Katherine Ludwig say we're going to need a dose of humility. We need to be humble enough to let go of the idea that "smart" means knowing the most, using that information quickest, and making the fewest mistakes. Smart machines will always be better than we are at those things.

This is old material piecemealed together with a futuristic name slapped on the front. It's not a bad book; there is just nothing new. Also, it takes on a "New Age" vibe at times which is a large turn off for me.
