    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...

    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...

    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...

    I wanted to read this book after hearing the author being interviewed on a podcast: https://samharris.org/podcasts/130-un... I actually listened to some of it in an audio-book format, read by the author, and then finished up by reading a physical book. (The author's audio performance...

    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...

    Universal Basic Income is a really interesting idea and it seems it would have something for everyone. Conservatives should like it because it can eliminate the cumbersome bureaucracy and disincentive to work of the current welfare state. Liberals should like it because it provides a s...

    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...

    This review is long overdue and I find myself often referring back to bits and pieces I?ve read. The War On Normal People is a frightening commentary of our American economy and how ever advancing technology has already and will continue to create an epic scale of unemployment. M...

    I?ll admit. When I first heard about the idea of Universal Basic Income (UBC), I cynically thought that the chance of that happening in this country was as likely as gun control being implemented. Zero chance. Then I read Andrew Yang?s book The War on Normal People. He makes a very...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Firstly, this book has a misleading title. It didn't describe a "war" - there are no clearly defined antagonists - but more describes the miserable decay of the flourishing 20th-century American way of life. There's also not that much about UBI in it - a chapter or two - but it's st...

    Very thought provoking book that touches on many social issues we face today. Worth a read just to expand the mind and to explore possible solutions to our world's social issues. I really like the idea of "humanistic capitalism", where humanity should trump profits even in a capitalist...

    This book/warning is a cry out for more people to see beyond themselves and their immediate instance. I cannot understand how the information in this book is not common sense. I guess so many just care too much about the next big app, the next food trend, just wanting more material. I ...

    4 takeaways from this book: 1) Universal Basic Income needs to become a reality. A rising tide lifts all boats. -It would reduce stress, improve health, decrease crime, and strengthen relationships. -It would make our society more equitable, fair, and just. -It could be ...

    Very thought provoking book that touches on many social issues we face today. Worth a read just to expand the mind and to explore possible solutions to our world's social issues. I really like the idea of "humanistic capitalism", where humanity should trump profits even in a capitalist...

    This book/warning is a cry out for more people to see beyond themselves and their immediate instance. I cannot understand how the information in this book is not common sense. I guess so many just care too much about the next big app, the next food trend, just wanting more material. I ...

    4 takeaways from this book: 1) Universal Basic Income needs to become a reality. A rising tide lifts all boats. -It would reduce stress, improve health, decrease crime, and strengthen relationships. -It would make our society more equitable, fair, and just. -It could be ...

    THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK I'VE READ THIS YEAR. The first time I heard about Andrew Yang was when he was on Sam Harris' podcast, "Waking Up". Yang is a current 2020 presidential candidate and successful entrepreneur that has spoken to many about creating jobs efficiently, includin...

    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, ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I wanted to read this book after hearing the author being interviewed on a podcast: https://samharris.org/podcasts/130-un... I actually listened to some of it in an audio-book format, read by the author, and then finished up by reading a physical book. (The author's audio performance...

    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...

    Like many others, I discovered Andrew Yang by way of his excellent interview with Sam Harris last month. Yang, who is running for President in 2020, immediately struck me as honest, intelligent, well-informed, and profoundly reasonable??a heroic foil for the repugnant personalities...

    Universal Basic Income is a really interesting idea and it seems it would have something for everyone. Conservatives should like it because it can eliminate the cumbersome bureaucracy and disincentive to work of the current welfare state. Liberals should like it because it provides a s...

    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...

    This review is long overdue and I find myself often referring back to bits and pieces I?ve read. The War On Normal People is a frightening commentary of our American economy and how ever advancing technology has already and will continue to create an epic scale of unemployment. M...

    I?ll admit. When I first heard about the idea of Universal Basic Income (UBC), I cynically thought that the chance of that happening in this country was as likely as gun control being implemented. Zero chance. Then I read Andrew Yang?s book The War on Normal People. He makes a very...

    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 describes with precision many of the social and economic woes plaguing society at present, painting a bleak, dismal, and all too plausible picture of how the near future may have some very tough times in store due to automation, AI, and the eternal quest of businesses to in...

    Andrew Yang makes the case that the federal government needs to reformat society (his words) to deal with the automation wave, which he says will make so many people unemployed and unemployable that social upheaval and even revolution may occur if we don?t take steps now to prevent i...

    A great take on about how robots and artificial intelligence will drastically change jobs, including how many jobs are going to disappear for humans. It's something serious that we can't ignore and he argues that it's coming a lot sooner than we think. He urges that now is the time to ...

    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...

    I wanted to read this book after hearing the author being interviewed on a podcast: https://samharris.org/podcasts/130-un... I actually listened to some of it in an audio-book format, read by the author, and then finished up by reading a physical book. (The author's audio performance...

    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...

    Like many others, I discovered Andrew Yang by way of his excellent interview with Sam Harris last month. Yang, who is running for President in 2020, immediately struck me as honest, intelligent, well-informed, and profoundly reasonable??a heroic foil for the repugnant personalities...

    Universal Basic Income is a really interesting idea and it seems it would have something for everyone. Conservatives should like it because it can eliminate the cumbersome bureaucracy and disincentive to work of the current welfare state. Liberals should like it because it provides a s...

    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...

    This review is long overdue and I find myself often referring back to bits and pieces I?ve read. The War On Normal People is a frightening commentary of our American economy and how ever advancing technology has already and will continue to create an epic scale of unemployment. M...

    I?ll admit. When I first heard about the idea of Universal Basic Income (UBC), I cynically thought that the chance of that happening in this country was as likely as gun control being implemented. Zero chance. Then I read Andrew Yang?s book The War on Normal People. He makes a very...

    Yang is running for America presidency 2020. He is the founder of Venture For America which distributed talents into developing cities in America, to staunch the brain drain of smart people into the coastal cities. Yang described the future jobless scenario when most things would b...

    ?More men aged 18-34 are now living with their parents than with romantic partners...? Andrew Yang has written a provocative little book. The majority of the work presents us with an unmistakable truth: society has changed, conventional jobs are disappearing, there are two Ameri...

    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 describes with precision many of the social and economic woes plaguing society at present, painting a bleak, dismal, and all too plausible picture of how the near future may have some very tough times in store due to automation, AI, and the eternal quest of businesses to in...

    Andrew Yang makes the case that the federal government needs to reformat society (his words) to deal with the automation wave, which he says will make so many people unemployed and unemployable that social upheaval and even revolution may occur if we don?t take steps now to prevent i...

    A great take on about how robots and artificial intelligence will drastically change jobs, including how many jobs are going to disappear for humans. It's something serious that we can't ignore and he argues that it's coming a lot sooner than we think. He urges that now is the time to ...

    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...

    Firstly, this book has a misleading title. It didn't describe a "war" - there are no clearly defined antagonists - but more describes the miserable decay of the flourishing 20th-century American way of life. There's also not that much about UBI in it - a chapter or two - but it's st...

    Very thought provoking book that touches on many social issues we face today. Worth a read just to expand the mind and to explore possible solutions to our world's social issues. I really like the idea of "humanistic capitalism", where humanity should trump profits even in a capitalist...
