    Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age

    Learn how to develop abilities that machines don’t have so you can thrive in this Smart Machine Age.

    "I loved this book. Drawing from research on human cognition, the authors explain why all of us are ill-equipped to cope with the coming smart machine age. And they offer a path forward in the form of five NewSmart principles, which are profound and powerful. This is a book about new thinking-the kind of generous, curious thinking that will allow us to thrive in a world in which machines do so many things better than we ever will." - Amy C. Edmonson, Professor at Harvard Business School
