Editorial Reviews

Review

"Frey’s story is well argued and―at times―deeply alarming."―John Thornhill, Financial Times

"An excellent analysis of past industrial revolutions, the technologies that emerged within them, and the way societies adapted to those changes."―Adi Gaskell, Forbes

"The Technology Trap may well ensnare doom-seekers’ attention with its ominous-sounding title. But it should ultimately hearten anyone who reads it."The Economist

"A provocative, original long view on current concerns."―Andrew Hill, Financial Times

"Bracing . . . Carl Frey extrapolates from the history of the industrial revolution to offer a vision of the future in which Amazon Go, AI assistants and autonomous vehicles are 'worker replacement' technologies."―Greg Williams, Wired

"An important book. . . . Frey is erudite and thoughtful."―Joel Mokyr, Journal of Economic History --This text refers to the paperback edition.
