Narrator Richard Lyddon performs an almost impossible feat--making a very theoretical audiobook sound absorbable in a truly entertaining way. Oxford Fellow Carl Frey offers a sweeping examination of technological revolutions and their impact on society. With a slight British accent, Lyddon employs perfect phrasing and an engaging lightness of tone. This serious work powerfully argues that technological revolutions have ultimately yielded substantial benefits to the very same people who at their outset became unemployed and unemployable with their older skills no longer in demand. Frey suggests that attitudinal adjustments are necessary for people to prevail in changing technological times. Cheers to both Frey and Lyddon, a pairing that listeners may wish to hear again.
