Excellent manual to navigate current - to next gen technology

Well written organized and comprehensive overview of technology trends and their impact. 2 minor issues: anyone who understands research and trends, do NOT generalize and imply that ALL millennials are this or that. Secondly, while the narrator has talent, and is much more preferable to boring monotonous unenthusiastic narrators, can someone please tell him that 8 hours of constant unbridled enthusiasm at level 9 can also be monotonous and makes it difficult to discern or extract or comprehend what is truly important. Not every word/sentence is equal. Some is just the necessary bread to hold the sandwich together. Lastly for audio listeners reading a litany of statistics is pointless. Just use pdf and perhaps 1 insight.

Enlightening

I was delighted by the book, it is written in an understandable language, very interesting, a bit scary (when talking about risk) but truly convincing. It covers many dimensions from home to business, strategy and execution, HR, not only IT funcion. It even offers insights about new generations of young people. This book is a must for anybody in business, education, healthcare, defence, infrastructure, as a matter of fact everybody. The only important aspect that is lacking for me in this book is the impact of new technologies on the health of people and environment. In my opinion, this should be a consideration accompanying any progress.

A very fast journey through the digital revolution

I was thinking that I am in the center of a hurricane named digital transformation and nothing would surprise me. The SPEED showed me how I was wrong. I couldn't wait for a printed book, so I decided the first time to listen to another book than a triller or mister. Mike Luoma who narrates is so energetic that listening to the SPEED is an unremarkable experience. The author gives in the book many examples and explains the mechanics of a digital revolution. Thanks to Aleksander Poniewierski, I understand better my job and with new power, I can help my clients in changing their business processes from caterpillars to butterflies.

Interesting ideas

Interesting ideas, going to have to listen to it a couple more times though to really digest the content, I'm sure listening at 1.5x didn't help though haha. The narrator is good too, feels natural with his delivery and is pleasant to listen to.

Excellent Manual of Applied Futurology!

As an enthusiast of technological futurology I am not surprised that for all intents and purposes the not-that-long fabled technological singularity is here. However, I’m surprised and delighted that there’s a manual how to apply it to business already! Plus, Speed with No Limits in the Digital Era is a catchier way to describe the situation where technology-driven change happens faster than people can keep up. Listening to the book let me appreciate the possibilities of emerging technologies transforming the world in exciting ways very soon, leaving no excuse to stay offboard!
