In this vitally important new audiobook, Robert Colvile explains how the cult of disruption in Silicon Valley, the ceaseless advance of technology and our own fundamental appetite for novelty and convenience have combined to speed up every aspect of daily life.
Drawing on the latest research, this book traces the path of this acceleration through our working and social lives, the food we buy and the music to which we listen. It explains how it's transforming the media, politics and the financial markets - and asks whether our bodies, and the natural environment, can cope.
As we race towards the future - into a world packed with new technologies, new ideas and new discoveries - this scintillating and engrossing book is an invaluable, must-listen guide to the wonders and dangers that await us.

Interesting but nothing new
After reading/listening to many Ai or automation books etc there was little to be learned from this book but it was entertaining.

a good balanced view
Although, a rehash of several books on my list he has a good tempo and some new information that is helping me to form a vision for the future... a good listen all around
