Narrator Jeff Cummings walks a line between dramatic narration and animated lecturing as he guides listeners through this look at the high-tech future. The authors provide listeners with an upbeat, informative discussion of what the economy may look like in the coming "laborless" world. Cummings's approach lightens some of the material as the audiobook veers between a trendy survey and a future policy manual. Technology may not be the white horse that carries us to a happy ending, but, the authors argue, we can still preserve our species with a combination of humanism and technical advances such as self-driving cars, robotics, massive free online courses, and artificial intelligence.
