    On the very first day I began reading this book I was in a meeting where someone asked me for examples of significant trends businesses and employees needed to have in mind for now and the future I basically recounted the first chapter of this book and then referred the asker to it This is a well researched and actionable glimpse of what the future of work looks like and a must read for anyone who is looking to stay ahead of the curve

    Like you I can share all sorts of anecdotes about how technology has modified my functions and tasks in the workplace in the last 10 15 years alone A great example documents and materials that were pieces of evidence to be used in litigation used to be produced by photocopy machines in which dozens if not hundreds of banker's boxes would be filled with sheets of photocopies of the original files It was not uncommon at the time to task several junior personnel to spend weeks in a typically windowless room going through those documents to identify relevant materials Today that process has been mechanized into ediscovery databases that allow for complex search strings that account for the source document type date and whether it was an attachment to an email What previously took weeks or months by several humans now takes seconds by computersHow lucky we are that technology has allowed us to mechanize those mundane tasks The junior personnel once stuck in a room for weeks trying to find anything remotely useful are now tasked with replicating modeling and adjusting complex models in formula linked Excel spreadsheets and presenting those findings to their supervisorsSuch anecdotes fill me with both amusement and awe I marvel that technology has so powerfully transformed a mundane slow process into an instant click of a few buttonsBut I also have a vague notion that much of what seasoned professionals like myself do in our day to day jobs could one day be mechanized by machines After all those machines lack the human error factor innate to all of usLevit's book allows us to think critically about the ways in which our uniuely human ualities will keep ourselves our children and grandchildren employed with rich meaningful important work even as the computers take over many of the tasks currently conducted by humans For example as we nurture our children to pursue STEM fields we ought to also make sure that they are strengthening their empathy collaboration creativity judgement and leadership These human traits Levit argues will be central to our success in the future workplaceInsightful well researched and an enjoyable read this is an instructive book with an overall optimistic outlook Humanity Works helps us address fears about the future workplace and strategically plan today for the changes that we expect will occur tomorrow but in fact are already present in our livesHighly recommended especially as a graduation gift or for anyone with a new job or position

    only the future is here In the interest of full disclosure I am a friend of the author as we started writing career books for new grads back when Alex wrote the excellent They Don't Teach Corporate in College And in all this time over a decade now I've watched as Alex has caught on to one workforce trend after another with precision wisdom and heart I recommend Humanity Works to anyone who wants to know how to build better teams and shift your culture in a workforce where the old rules of power no longer apply

    The topic is interesting but the book is a collection of ideas already present in the media The effort seems to be to offer a mosaic of contemporary issues but there is not a main idea a clue to understand the world A good wine to lose focus and attention
