Qu'avez-vous particulièrement aimé dans le livre audio The Future of the Professions ?
The book is is written in simple language and is rife with examples just when one thought the future could only be described in abstract terms. The author makes a powerful case for the end of the professions which would not be an "overnight revolution" but will come into being through the gradual "withering" of the professions. It takes insight from numerous works in philosophy, mathematics, information technology and many other fields (medicine, law, finance, government). This book is not only about professions but about education of future professionals and about the future of government and economics, too. As such, I see it more like a book about the future of the world and not just the professions. That's why I think of it as transformational.
Avec quel autre livre pouvez-vous comparer The Future of the Professions ? Expliquez pourquoi.
It is extremely difficult to find a book like the Susskinds' because this book gathers insight from so many fields to make for the case it so ardently supports—the authors cite Marx, Adam Smith, Michael Sandel, Marvin Minsky, Harold Lasky, Robert Hart, Lawrence Lessig, Baggini, Weizenbaum. Some instances of the book reminded me of works I've read before, especially Michael Sandel's What Money Can't Buy—which is an equally fascinating book, but is more about moral philosophy.

It would be difficult to listen to this book in one time because firstly I never do that; I prefer to enjoy the book. Secondly, this book is very constructive in that the author invents concepts or describes them and then uses them later to demonstrate something more complex. Those concepts chiefly include "practical expertise", "Grand Bargain", "gatekeepers", "reactive and proactive services", "disintermediation and decomposition of jobs", "latent demand", "communities of experience" as well as technical terms borrowed from other disciplines (non-rival goods, embedded knowledge, affective computing), as well as many professions (knowledge engineers, computational linguistics).
