    Move over Great Pacific Garbage Patch, Mama has a new issue to plague her sleepless nights. In The War on Normal People, Yang, outlines the upcoming employment crisis to hit the United States. With increasing measures by businesses and organizations to make all things automated for ...

    When Donald Trump was elected President in 2016, I was living in Miami, FL. At the time, I had lived through three cycles of boom and bust in the United States. The great recession, in particular, sparked my interest in economics and its impact on society. At the time, learning abo...

    Americans are becoming more angered, more frustrated, even more depressed and despondent in this Dog Eat Dog world we currently reside in as they struggle for basics to simply survive. Jobs are being replaced by automation, innovation, technology as the new norm. What happened to be...

    I read The War On Normal People. I recommend it to everyone, which makes it a different kind of book. Even though I love, say, detective novels, and biographies, I won't recommend them to every kind of person. The War On Normal People stands out to me as being able to improve the lives...

    It?s hard to be in the year 2018 and not hear about the endless studies alarming the general public about coming labor automation. But what Yang provides in this book is two key things: automation has already been ravaging the country which has led to the great political polarization...

    I found this amazing book to be incredibly powerful. The effect of reading Yang's book is literally like waking up and seeing the world in a new way. It's so easy to think of automation as someone else's issue, or a decades-away problem, but the book decidedly convinces the reader that...

    Human Capitalism is an excellent economic system that should be institutionalized within America. Yes, radicalizing an entire economic system seems crazy at first; but once you wrap your head around how basic it could be to implement & how effective it could be for 350,000,000 peop...

    I literally jumped out of my bed in excitement halfway through reading this book. Andrew Yang completely nails what has caused many of the problems in the US. His simple description of the human effects from automation, and his major policy recommendations to fix them are both a str...

    First and foremost, before I get into anything, I fully recommend this book. I'm giving it a perfect score...... But if I could I'd give it a higher score. Get it from the library, Amazon, or borrow it from a friend. Read it asap, it's easily one of the best books of the year. I hop...

    I was absolutely shocked by this book and can't stop talking about it. The author gives a background of the largest income sectors in the US, all of which have lost or will lose jobs to automation, including retail and trucking, and the impact this will have on income inequality, famil...

    Andrew Yang is a gifted writer who explains his ideas with incredible clarity and a palpable sense of urgency. His well reasoned arguments in favor of Universal Basic Income have convinced the skeptic in me that it would provide a lot of net positive results to the country and the worl...

    Andrew Yang paints a bleak picture of the future. If it were painted by a child, it would take him to a psychiatrist's office. But the author is no child, and no psychiatrist could conceivably deliver us from the menace of technological and sociological change. The book is a powerfu...

    There's a stark patronizing tone to this book that bugs me. It would have been a lot less evident if the author hadn't begun with "Your sort probably aren't reading this book." Well, thanks for that man. Yeah, yeah, statistics, I know - but there is such a thing as tact and it matters....

    Mostly this is about job displacement in the mid and low skill labor force brought on by artificial intelligence. The author predicts major job losses over the next 10 years, with most of the casualties being men in transportation (truck driving) and similar blue collar positions who, ...

    Normal Americans can sense that the economic systems in the US are rigged against them, but they can't always see the gears at work. The War on Normal People is a thorough, cogent, data-driven explanation of the state of our nation and exactly how things have gone so wrong. In sum, the...

    If this book were an emoji, it would be an eyeroll. If it were a rapper, it would be Kanye West. If it were a freshman composition paper, I would give it a B-/C+. The argument itself is pretty solid but presented in a Chicken Little way, i.e., the economy is failing and robots are taki...

    This is a really insightful book, it is a really great take on what is happening politically and economically in America and by extension in many other places including Australia. What I like is the very positive approach that does not just look at problems but suggests productive and ...

    This book gets off to a good start describing the crisis that AI and robotics will cause. Wang builds his case skillfully. However, I find the solutions in his final section are unsatisfying. Wang recommends a $12,000 yearly UBI. With such a low amount, people will try supplementing th...

    I find myself optimistically cautious about our fast approaching automated future. It?s going to take a seismic shift in understanding and consciousness to adapt to what?s coming down the pike. It?s going to be a tsunami and our Governments are no where near prepared. Andrew Yang...

    Reading this book does not require any great leaps of the imagination ? Andrew simply lays out truths most of us can agree with, but when looking at these truths side by side and with the context of how it is affecting so many in our country the picture is frighteningly closer than I...

    When it comes to automation, Andrew clearly and thoughtfully paints the current state of affairs. Spoiler: the picture is bleak. Not only does he present how automation will impact the domestic and global economy (and more importantly the individuals who makeup this interconnected ecos...

    A necessary read for understanding the problems facing America's economy in the coming years of automation and artificial intelligence. Even if I have some disagreements with the viability or effectiveness of his policy suggestions, the topics covered by Yang in this book are far more ...

    I simply cannot recommend this book highly enough. Yang is a prime example of the vision drawn from knowledge and experience that the next generation of leaders has to offer. His insights on the current economic, technological, educational, and political situation we find ourselves in ...

    This is a book that every American should read. It is enlightening and fact based about our society and economy. It gives some solid, clearly reasoned solutions that we can work toward for our future. ...

    Andrew seems attached to reality and provides solutions that have experimental evidence to support them. I've read enough of the books he references to see that he cites them accurately. Well done. ...

    Normal Americans can sense that the economic systems in the US are rigged against them, but they can't always see the gears at work. The War on Normal People is a thorough, cogent, data-driven explanation of the state of our nation and exactly how things have gone so wrong. In sum, the...

    If this book were an emoji, it would be an eyeroll. If it were a rapper, it would be Kanye West. If it were a freshman composition paper, I would give it a B-/C+. The argument itself is pretty solid but presented in a Chicken Little way, i.e., the economy is failing and robots are taki...

    This is a really insightful book, it is a really great take on what is happening politically and economically in America and by extension in many other places including Australia. What I like is the very positive approach that does not just look at problems but suggests productive and ...

    This book gets off to a good start describing the crisis that AI and robotics will cause. Wang builds his case skillfully. However, I find the solutions in his final section are unsatisfying. Wang recommends a $12,000 yearly UBI. With such a low amount, people will try supplementing th...

    I find myself optimistically cautious about our fast approaching automated future. It?s going to take a seismic shift in understanding and consciousness to adapt to what?s coming down the pike. It?s going to be a tsunami and our Governments are no where near prepared. Andrew Yang...

    Reading this book does not require any great leaps of the imagination ? Andrew simply lays out truths most of us can agree with, but when looking at these truths side by side and with the context of how it is affecting so many in our country the picture is frighteningly closer than I...

    When it comes to automation, Andrew clearly and thoughtfully paints the current state of affairs. Spoiler: the picture is bleak. Not only does he present how automation will impact the domestic and global economy (and more importantly the individuals who makeup this interconnected ecos...

    A necessary read for understanding the problems facing America's economy in the coming years of automation and artificial intelligence. Even if I have some disagreements with the viability or effectiveness of his policy suggestions, the topics covered by Yang in this book are far more ...

    I simply cannot recommend this book highly enough. Yang is a prime example of the vision drawn from knowledge and experience that the next generation of leaders has to offer. His insights on the current economic, technological, educational, and political situation we find ourselves in ...

    When Donald Trump was elected President in 2016, I was living in Miami, FL. At the time, I had lived through three cycles of boom and bust in the United States. The great recession, in particular, sparked my interest in economics and its impact on society. At the time, learning abo...

    I read The War On Normal People. I recommend it to everyone, which makes it a different kind of book. Even though I love, say, detective novels, and biographies, I won't recommend them to every kind of person. The War On Normal People stands out to me as being able to improve the lives...

    It?s hard to be in the year 2018 and not hear about the endless studies alarming the general public about coming labor automation. But what Yang provides in this book is two key things: automation has already been ravaging the country which has led to the great political polarization...

    I found this amazing book to be incredibly powerful. The effect of reading Yang's book is literally like waking up and seeing the world in a new way. It's so easy to think of automation as someone else's issue, or a decades-away problem, but the book decidedly convinces the reader that...

    Human Capitalism is an excellent economic system that should be institutionalized within America. Yes, radicalizing an entire economic system seems crazy at first; but once you wrap your head around how basic it could be to implement & how effective it could be for 350,000,000 peop...

    I read The War On Normal People. I recommend it to everyone, which makes it a different kind of book. Even though I love, say, detective novels, and biographies, I won't recommend them to every kind of person. The War On Normal People stands out to me as being able to improve the lives...

    It?s hard to be in the year 2018 and not hear about the endless studies alarming the general public about coming labor automation. But what Yang provides in this book is two key things: automation has already been ravaging the country which has led to the great political polarization...

    I found this amazing book to be incredibly powerful. The effect of reading Yang's book is literally like waking up and seeing the world in a new way. It's so easy to think of automation as someone else's issue, or a decades-away problem, but the book decidedly convinces the reader that...

    Human Capitalism is an excellent economic system that should be institutionalized within America. Yes, radicalizing an entire economic system seems crazy at first; but once you wrap your head around how basic it could be to implement & how effective it could be for 350,000,000 peop...

    First and foremost, before I get into anything, I fully recommend this book. I'm giving it a perfect score...... But if I could I'd give it a higher score. Get it from the library, Amazon, or borrow it from a friend. Read it asap, it's easily one of the best books of the year. I hop...

    I was absolutely shocked by this book and can't stop talking about it. The author gives a background of the largest income sectors in the US, all of which have lost or will lose jobs to automation, including retail and trucking, and the impact this will have on income inequality, famil...

    Andrew Yang is a gifted writer who explains his ideas with incredible clarity and a palpable sense of urgency. His well reasoned arguments in favor of Universal Basic Income have convinced the skeptic in me that it would provide a lot of net positive results to the country and the worl...

    Andrew Yang paints a bleak picture of the future. If it were painted by a child, it would take him to a psychiatrist's office. But the author is no child, and no psychiatrist could conceivably deliver us from the menace of technological and sociological change. The book is a powerfu...

    There's a stark patronizing tone to this book that bugs me. It would have been a lot less evident if the author hadn't begun with "Your sort probably aren't reading this book." Well, thanks for that man. Yeah, yeah, statistics, I know - but there is such a thing as tact and it matters....

    Mostly this is about job displacement in the mid and low skill labor force brought on by artificial intelligence. The author predicts major job losses over the next 10 years, with most of the casualties being men in transportation (truck driving) and similar blue collar positions who, ...

    Normal Americans can sense that the economic systems in the US are rigged against them, but they can't always see the gears at work. The War on Normal People is a thorough, cogent, data-driven explanation of the state of our nation and exactly how things have gone so wrong. In sum, the...

    If this book were an emoji, it would be an eyeroll. If it were a rapper, it would be Kanye West. If it were a freshman composition paper, I would give it a B-/C+. The argument itself is pretty solid but presented in a Chicken Little way, i.e., the economy is failing and robots are taki...

    This is a really insightful book, it is a really great take on what is happening politically and economically in America and by extension in many other places including Australia. What I like is the very positive approach that does not just look at problems but suggests productive and ...

    This book gets off to a good start describing the crisis that AI and robotics will cause. Wang builds his case skillfully. However, I find the solutions in his final section are unsatisfying. Wang recommends a $12,000 yearly UBI. With such a low amount, people will try supplementing th...

    I find myself optimistically cautious about our fast approaching automated future. It?s going to take a seismic shift in understanding and consciousness to adapt to what?s coming down the pike. It?s going to be a tsunami and our Governments are no where near prepared. Andrew Yang...

    Reading this book does not require any great leaps of the imagination ? Andrew simply lays out truths most of us can agree with, but when looking at these truths side by side and with the context of how it is affecting so many in our country the picture is frighteningly closer than I...

    When it comes to automation, Andrew clearly and thoughtfully paints the current state of affairs. Spoiler: the picture is bleak. Not only does he present how automation will impact the domestic and global economy (and more importantly the individuals who makeup this interconnected ecos...

    A necessary read for understanding the problems facing America's economy in the coming years of automation and artificial intelligence. Even if I have some disagreements with the viability or effectiveness of his policy suggestions, the topics covered by Yang in this book are far more ...

    I simply cannot recommend this book highly enough. Yang is a prime example of the vision drawn from knowledge and experience that the next generation of leaders has to offer. His insights on the current economic, technological, educational, and political situation we find ourselves in ...

    This is a book that every American should read. It is enlightening and fact based about our society and economy. It gives some solid, clearly reasoned solutions that we can work toward for our future. ...

    Andrew seems attached to reality and provides solutions that have experimental evidence to support them. I've read enough of the books he references to see that he cites them accurately. Well done. ...

    Human Capitalism is an excellent economic system that should be institutionalized within America. Yes, radicalizing an entire economic system seems crazy at first; but once you wrap your head around how basic it could be to implement & how effective it could be for 350,000,000 peop...

    I literally jumped out of my bed in excitement halfway through reading this book. Andrew Yang completely nails what has caused many of the problems in the US. His simple description of the human effects from automation, and his major policy recommendations to fix them are both a str...

    First and foremost, before I get into anything, I fully recommend this book. I'm giving it a perfect score...... But if I could I'd give it a higher score. Get it from the library, Amazon, or borrow it from a friend. Read it asap, it's easily one of the best books of the year. I hop...

    I was absolutely shocked by this book and can't stop talking about it. The author gives a background of the largest income sectors in the US, all of which have lost or will lose jobs to automation, including retail and trucking, and the impact this will have on income inequality, famil...

    Andrew Yang is a gifted writer who explains his ideas with incredible clarity and a palpable sense of urgency. His well reasoned arguments in favor of Universal Basic Income have convinced the skeptic in me that it would provide a lot of net positive results to the country and the worl...

    Andrew Yang paints a bleak picture of the future. If it were painted by a child, it would take him to a psychiatrist's office. But the author is no child, and no psychiatrist could conceivably deliver us from the menace of technological and sociological change. The book is a powerfu...

    There's a stark patronizing tone to this book that bugs me. It would have been a lot less evident if the author hadn't begun with "Your sort probably aren't reading this book." Well, thanks for that man. Yeah, yeah, statistics, I know - but there is such a thing as tact and it matters....

    When Donald Trump was elected President in 2016, I was living in Miami, FL. At the time, I had lived through three cycles of boom and bust in the United States. The great recession, in particular, sparked my interest in economics and its impact on society. At the time, learning abo...

    Americans are becoming more angered, more frustrated, even more depressed and despondent in this Dog Eat Dog world we currently reside in as they struggle for basics to simply survive. Jobs are being replaced by automation, innovation, technology as the new norm. What happened to be...

    I read The War On Normal People. I recommend it to everyone, which makes it a different kind of book. Even though I love, say, detective novels, and biographies, I won't recommend them to every kind of person. The War On Normal People stands out to me as being able to improve the lives...

    Mostly this is about job displacement in the mid and low skill labor force brought on by artificial intelligence. The author predicts major job losses over the next 10 years, with most of the casualties being men in transportation (truck driving) and similar blue collar positions who, ...

    Normal Americans can sense that the economic systems in the US are rigged against them, but they can't always see the gears at work. The War on Normal People is a thorough, cogent, data-driven explanation of the state of our nation and exactly how things have gone so wrong. In sum, the...

    If this book were an emoji, it would be an eyeroll. If it were a rapper, it would be Kanye West. If it were a freshman composition paper, I would give it a B-/C+. The argument itself is pretty solid but presented in a Chicken Little way, i.e., the economy is failing and robots are taki...

    This is a really insightful book, it is a really great take on what is happening politically and economically in America and by extension in many other places including Australia. What I like is the very positive approach that does not just look at problems but suggests productive and ...

    This book gets off to a good start describing the crisis that AI and robotics will cause. Wang builds his case skillfully. However, I find the solutions in his final section are unsatisfying. Wang recommends a $12,000 yearly UBI. With such a low amount, people will try supplementing th...

    I find myself optimistically cautious about our fast approaching automated future. It?s going to take a seismic shift in understanding and consciousness to adapt to what?s coming down the pike. It?s going to be a tsunami and our Governments are no where near prepared. Andrew Yang...

    Reading this book does not require any great leaps of the imagination ? Andrew simply lays out truths most of us can agree with, but when looking at these truths side by side and with the context of how it is affecting so many in our country the picture is frighteningly closer than I...

    When it comes to automation, Andrew clearly and thoughtfully paints the current state of affairs. Spoiler: the picture is bleak. Not only does he present how automation will impact the domestic and global economy (and more importantly the individuals who makeup this interconnected ecos...
