Five Talents for the Robotic AgeBook - 2013
The Industrial Age has taught us how to break problems into parts, but not how to build parts into solutions. We're baffled when we're confronted with complex challenges like recession, political gridlock, climate change, childhood obesity, pollution, and failing schools. We see them as separate ills, each requiring a separate remedy-if we can imagine a remedy at all. It's not that our problems are too difficult, he argues, but that our skills are too basic. Neumeier presents five metaskills-feeling, seeing, dreaming, making, and learning-that can help you reach your true potential. They'll keep you two or three steps ahead of the machines, the algorithms, and the outsourcing forces of the "robot curve". They'll also bring you greater creativity, higher purpose, and a deeper sense of fulfillment. Perhaps more important, it's a long-overdue examination of what it means to be human in the 21st century -- book jacket.
