Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab, read by Nicholas Guy Smith.
The founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum on how the impending technological revolution will change our lives.
We are on the brink of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. And this one will be unlike any other in human history.
Characterized by new technologies fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will impact all disciplines, economies and industries - and it will do so at an unprecedented rate. World Economic Forum data predicts that by 2025 we will see commercial use of nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than human hair; the first transplant of a 3-D-printed liver; 10 percent of all cars on US roads being driverless; and much more besides.
In The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Schwab outlines the key technologies driving this revolution; discusses the major impacts on governments, businesses, civil society and individuals; and offers bold ideas for what can be done to shape a better future for all.

Boring and way too vague, no proper examples

Very highl level view, machines and robots are going to take over ... political shifs... social tension increases ... sounds like author tried to scare, tells super obvious things and overall boring book. I suggest to chech Third industrial revolution in Vice documentary, it is much much better snd fown to real examples

If you want to understand the future read this

A detailed analysis of the technologies of the future and the impacts that they may have socially and politically. A must read for these confusing and worrying times
