Publisher's Summary

In this timely, counterintuitive and highly practical guide to the age of A.I. and automation, a New York Times technology columnist argues that the key to success is making yourself more human, not less.

The machines are here. After decades of sci-fi doomsaying and marketing hype, advanced A.I. and automation technologies have leapt out of research labs and Silicon Valley engineering departments and into the centre of our lives. The world's biggest corporations are racing to automate jobs and some experts predict that A.I could put millions of people out of work. But all is not lost. With a little effort, we can become futureproof. 

In Futureproof: 9 Rules for Machine-Age Humans, New York Times technology columnist Kevin Roose lays out an optimistic vision of how people can thrive in the machine age by rethinking their relationship with technology and making themselves irreplaceably human.

Overall interesting but...

The VO for this audiobook sounds very machine like. I heard Kevin Roose on an episode of Pivot. He’s got such a great voice. Wonder why he didn’t read the book himself.
Otherwise a good listen.
