'It might just save your life - and your children's lives. The Globotics Upheaval is a manifesto for future-proofing our jobs and prosperity . . . His prose is snappy . . . as good a summary as you'll read of the techno-revolution that is about to hit us' * Sunday Times *
'The book offers valuable insights into the long-term impact that globalization and AI will have on workers . . . Baldwin presents a compelling view of the future of work and the challenges ahead while there is still time to prepare' -- John Peha * Science magazine *
'An important new book that delivers a timely warning to the world's business elite . . . confirms his place as one of the most important thinkers in this era of global disruption' -- James Crabtree * Financial Times *
Globotics is the first book I've come across that ties together the two main forces shaping our world - globalisation and technological change - in an accessible way... Much of the research Baldwin shows in his book can be summarised as: when our job depends on our obedience, we are in trouble. When our job depends on our humanity, we are going to be okay. * THE BUSINESS POST *
Baldwin has written an engaging and informative book that guides the reader through this disruptive technological change. The Globotics Upheaval distils complex ideas into measured and understandable language that readers with no prior understanding of artificial intelligence and economics will be able to digest. * THE TIMES *
A provocative argument. * REUTERS *
