Publisher's Summary

From Uber to the presidential debates, the gig economy has been dominating the headlines, and for good reason. Today, more than a third of Americans are working in the gig economy - mixing together short-term jobs, contract work, and freelance assignments. For those who've figured out the formula, life has never been better!
The Gig Economy is your guide to this uncertain but ultimately rewarding world. Succeeding in it starts with shifting gears to recognize that only you control your future. Next is leveraging your skills, knowledge, and network to create your own career trajectory - one immune to the whims of an employer.
Packed with research, exercises, and anecdotes, this eye-opening book supplies strategies - ranging from the professional to the personal - to help you:

Construct a life based on your priorities and vision of success
Cultivate connections without networking
Create your own security
Take more time off
Build flexibility into your financial life
Face your fears by reducing risk
Prepare for the future
And much more

Layoffs...recessions...Corporate jobs are not only unstable - they're increasingly scarce. It's time to take charge of your own career and lead the life you actually want.

interesting and informative

An interesting look at economics with a touch of "self-help" and motivation. Very relevant and informative. Not too political or opinionated.

Better work, or just some work?

Well narrated, with useful illustrations. No gigs in medicine or government. Different outsourcing chores vs specialisms.

Good ideas and concepts

I got a lot of good ideas from this book. The performance was very good also.

Only down side is that many of the comments are US-centric and not relevant for people living outside of the United States. An international version of this book might be an improvement.
