Not a bad place to begin (though I think Super Crunchers is better) if you want to know where the world's heading, but much of this smells of pure promotion for the start ups he's invested in. A lot of glib and glitzy stuff, with a complete absence of deeper analysis on the ramifications of how this stuff will transform the labour market of ALL professions. His solution is basically " we need better math teachers at the high school level", but can't bring himself to talk about how their pay is crap or the constant abuse they're subject to by politicians. A shallow book, but an easy read for the uncritical who want some anecdotes on this "new" thing...
