This book succinctly captures the pace at which technology is transforming both our homes and workplaces. Significantly however, Leonhard challenges the current lack of debate as to whether these technologies actually act in our best interests and also questions what we, as humans, are potentially sacrificing as we adopt them and whether society actually benefits in the longer term. 

Whilst clearly a technology enthusiast, the author also takes a sensitive and humanitarian approach to the various ethical dilemmas posed by the mass adoption of new and emerging technologies. 

​This is a great read for anyone interested in building a more solid understanding of both the opportunities and threats posed by a more technology-dependent future. ​
