The author narrates his complex but compelling audiobook in what might be called the English explanatory style. In rounded British- inflected tones, he explains that the fear of job loss to robots and computers is real but the reality will be quite gradual. An Oxford economics professor, Susskind has a patient delivery that benefits from his authoritative voice and scholarly view of this speculative subject. An expert on AI and longtime student of how work in the future will be expropriated by thinking machines, Susskind provides a precise delivery that makes his data-driven arguments understandable. While his prognostications do lean heavily on what he dubs "Big Tech" and "the Big State," this is an important and eye-opening audiobook.
