The Times and Financial Times Book of the Year
´Enticing´ Sunday Times | ´Engaging´ Financial Times | ´Essential´ Reid Hoffman
As technology accelerates, the human mind struggles to keep up - and our companies, workplaces and democracies get left behind. This is the exponential gap.
Now, a leading technologist explores how this exponential gap is rewiring our world - and reveals how we should respond.
´The sheer might of technology giants is one of the great challenges of our time . . . Azeem Azhar´s excellent book Exponential offers some solutions´ Amol Rajan, BBC News
´Azhar has a knack for interrogating and inverting conventional thinking . . . A convincing case that something extraordinary is taking place in business and society´ Economist
´Deft and clear-eyed . . . Perhaps Azhar´s most valuable insight is that conservatively managing the individual risks posed by new technologies will not suffice´ Financial Times
´Speaks powerfully about how we need to shape technology to put it back in the service of society´ Guardian
´Valuable and timely . . . A diligent and comprehensive definition of a new phase in human affairs´ Sunday Times
