The Times and Financial Times Book of the Year'Enticing' Sunday Times 'Engaging' Financial Times 'Excellent' Amol Rajan, BBC NewsAs technology accelerates, the human mind struggles to keep up - and our companies, workplaces, and democracies get left behind. This is the exponential gap. Now, a leading technologist explains how this exponential gap is rewiring business and society. Exploring corporations and the workplace, diplomacy and big tech, Exponential makes sense of a period of dizzyingly fast change - and reveals how we should respond. __'Valuable and timely . . . The importance of the book lies in its diligent and comprehensive definition of a new phase in human affairs.' Sunday Times'A sweeping, engaging, nuanced, and ultimately conflicted look at how recent innovations in computing and other emerging technologies have radically transformed human existence . . . Deft and clear-eyed.' Financial Times'Azhar has a knack for interrogating and inverting conventional thinking . . . A convincing case that something extraordinary is taking place in business and society.' Economist'Comprehensive but lively . . . An essential addition to the ongoing discourse about where remarkable new technologies can take us, and where we should be aiming to go. Highly recommended!' Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and author of Blitzscaling'Azhar is unapologetically bullish about the power of technology . . .
