    1. Federico has written a much needed assessment of where jobs in the economy are already headed in the US and around the world. By now it should be clear that technology and automation will become the dominant means of production, and the transition will mean less and less people being employed. The question for us now is not how do we create more jobs, but more so how do we create a society in which less and less people need to work.The first half of Federico's book describes well the issues of u [...]

    2. Overall this is an excellent book, although I think some of the recommendations in the later chapters are a bit expensive for most people and don't consider the problems of actually owning a house in the first place.I also think some of the economic issues are slightly brushed over. For example, automation may cease to be profitable if the resulting unemployment creates a new equilibrium of lower wages/working conditions (one can look at the lack of automation in sweatshops for an example of thi [...]

    3. The book is perhaps worth a read, if you aren't up-to-date with the modern digital/hacker culture but is lacking in many ways despite some good ideas and to be honest one would probably learn more just from hanging out on Reddit's various tech-based subreddits and /r/futurology.The book seems to have an abundance of references (a good thing!) for relatively uncontroversial statements and yet then makes bold statements like: It turns out that just giving people money is not enough. We know that b [...]

    4. There is much I appreciate about this book, including the author's obvious enthusiasm and attention to the subject of automation and robots replacing human labor for good. There are particular sections about happiness and some good advice that I found personally useful. Unfortunately, the book as a whole does not quite gel into a cohesive exploration of these important topics, and in fact, the book ends abruptly, without an explanation as to why the last topics are important to any overarching t [...]

    5. Very poor book. The author stated at the beginning he knew little about the topic and it's shows. Wild generalizations and many assumptions. He shouldn't be allowed to publish books.Second machine age is much much better.

    6. Don't read this Book.Buying it is a vast of your money, and reading it a vast of your time.I has high expectations of the book, as I am very interested in the topic, and was shocked by the poor quality of the discussion presented in this book. The author fails completely to convince me using any of the strange arguments and lines of reasoning presented in the first part of the book. The second part seems to be a collection of live-insights by the author, mostly unrelated to the topic of the book [...]

    7. Si no se sabe de qué va a ir el futuro próximo (el presente más bien, al ser un libro de 2012, y un poquito más) en el terreno laboral y se quiere indagar un poco, leer el libro no hará daño; pero estando más o menos informado, probablemente queda más un libro de autoayuda y autosuficiencia que de tecnología. Teniendo en cuenta [la primera parte de] el título, con optimismo se salva la Parte I aunque quizá únicamente los capítulos 7 a 8. Como se menciona en un párrafo, la motivaci [...]

    8. I enjoyed this book. Pistono combined convincing data with a realistic but slightly optimistic outlook. I think this is an important book if you're curious about the future of work and if you're questioning our culture's way of defining it. I think this is also a good book if you're curious about how technology will shape our working lives which (not surprisingly) is one of the core aspects of our lives and that is about to change soon. I finished the book feeling slightly scared but more invigo [...]

    9. Going by the title and the synopsis, I thought this was going to be a book about how automation is going to continue on its exponential path, the social changes that are going to happen as a result, and how to weather them. Not so.While it does tackle current trends in automation, and the concept of technological unemployment, it doesn't project much into the future and doesn't even start to speculate about social changes. It does however tell you how to be less dependent on energy and money in [...]

    10. While the topic at hand is really interesting, the author offers but a superficial glance at the most engaging topics, offering nothing but regurgitated ideas from others without any criticism or originality.I'm an optimist and transhumanist/singularity enthusiast myself, but I know there are problems with the utopian view of an automated world. Dismissing strawman versions of cherry-picked arguments with the same widely circulated arguments the community spouts frequently is no way to foster a [...]

    11. Whilst the central discussion of the book is pretty interesting, I found a lot of the other material pretty disjointed. The book leads with several chapters around the science and technological advances that will lead to loss of jobs through automation and what society will become as a result etc. Then the second half includes such random pieces of advice as growing your own food and eating less meat. Although these are presented in a reasonably convincing manner - I thought they had zero relati [...]

    12. A pleasantly written book that gives a good overview of the technological unemployment idea. It is nice that the autor is so optimistic about the future, but I'm afraid that more is needed than the advise he is giving in the en of his book to tackle the problems we are probably facing. The solutions he gives are from a liberal and positive mindset. He proposes that people school and develop themselves to be happier and have a better chance when automatiob is going to take away jobs. But I think [...]

    13. Uno sguardo finalmente fresco ed "ottimista" al futuro che ci attende: un sano cambiamento di prospettiva che può aiutarci a valutare quanto accadrà e quanto sta già accadendo nelle nostre vite con una diversa "forma mentis".Si può essere d'accordo con tutte le argomentazioni di Federico Pistono oppure dissentire su alcune di esse, non importa, ciò che importa è che ci vengono offerti nuovi strumenti per valutare situazioni nuove.

    14. Federico Pistono, a young mind and yet so much to share, gives us this humorous book, full of insights and truthness.Our economy is collapsing and there are better ways to solve our problems than to create debt out of debt. Robots are here to make our lives easier, and better. We can use our free time to take part on activities that really pleases us and that makes of us better persons.We shouldn't be afraid of technology, it will not rule us. But, certainly, will change our world view.

    15. Nothing bugs me more than someone that can't keep a promise. Even worse is someone who intentionally misleads to try to pass as something they're not.Sorry, Federio, you're not RMS. Free shouldn't be gimped and plastered with guilt inducing advertisements. Quit trying to pass yourself off as something you're not.This book isn't worth the time to read, let alone any money.

    16. Good bookThis book help me understand the world around me understand myself. I hope this book will inspire others to happiness.
