Waterstones Says

An indispensable guide to the gap emerging between human and technological capabilities, Azhar's piercing analysis provides practical solutions to a range of concerning problems.

As technology accelerates, the human mind struggles to keep up - and our companies, workplaces, and democracies get left behind. This is the exponential gap.

Now, a leading technologist explains how this exponential gap is rewiring business and society. Exploring corporations and the workplace, diplomacy and big tech, Exponential makes sense of a period of dizzyingly fast change - and reveals how we should respond.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A powerful argument ... Azhar's writing is informative and accessible, and his prescient ideas are only going to become more important.' - Hannah Fry

'Azhar is unapologetically bullish about the power of technology ... He speaks powerfully about how we need to shape technology to put it back in the service of society.' The Guardian

'Valuable and timely ... The importance of the book lies in its diligent and comprehensive definition of a new phase in human affairs ... An enticing and necessary read.' - The Sunday Times 

'Every generation fears technology is changing frighteningly fast. Usually it is hyperbole, the fear of the unknown. But today technological shifts are posing challenges to our security, our democracies, our way of life, our sanity. Azeem Azhar's brilliant book demystifies these exponentially fast changes and - importantly - shows how the chronic volatility can be harnessed for good. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how to reclaim a good society from the snapping jaws of looming chaos.' - Robert Peston
