The Robots are Coming by John Pugliano – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the book “The Robots are Coming” by our own John Pugliano.  John and I have been discussing the coming age of automation on the air for more than two years now.  Specifically how this represents both a major disruption to society and a major opportunity at the same time for people who are paying attention.

Here are the key things I love about John’s new book.

Ease of Reading – I thought this book would be like reading a massive text book, wrong.  While packed with content at over 200 pages the book is broken into chapters as you would expect but each chapter is broken into small, concise and easy to understand subsections.  Most subsections are 3/4ths to 2 pages long.  This makes reading this complex topic almost like snacking on knowledge. School books should be written by someone like John!

Action Plans – Rather than just dumb 17 chapters on you John gives you an action plan outline at the end of each one.  By answering a series of questions at the end of each chapter you actually form the basis of your personalized action plan.

No BS – While forward looking this book examines the next 5-50 years, not the next 500 years starting 200 into the future.  This isn’t science fiction that will one day be science fact, rather real technologies, many already developed and simply now being deployed.  This books isn’t just what is going to happen, it is also a lot of what is already happening, but no one seems to yet realize is happening.

Full of Ideas for Anyone – What are you going to do to adapt to the next few decades?  Most of us will live at least that long.  Most of us are actually aware that change is coming in a way that will make the last 50 years look like we had the throttle on slow and finally discovered that we can push it to full.  We no to be prepared but we don’t know exactly how to do that.  This book won’t give you that answer but it will give you tons of real doable ideas so you can find answers for your own life as you move forward.

I highly recommend adding this book to your library.  The Robots are Coming by John Pugliano is available in both Paperback and Kindle Editions, so choose your format and get your copy today.
