Advance Praise for Everyday Chaos

Seth Godin, author, This Is Marketing--
"My copy is filled with notes on the margins of every page. This is what books are for--a mind-blowing, game-changing, fun-to-read race into the future. Wow."

Reid Hoffman, cofounder, LinkedIn; Partner, Greylock--
"If you want to better understand the possibilities that machine learning and other forms of AI are creating--and harness the power of these breakthroughs--read this lively and illuminating book!"

Aneesh Chopra, former (and first) US Chief Technology Officer, Obama Administration--
"Weinberger's thought-provoking call to action is a must-read for business leaders pushing the envelope on innovation, for policy makers seeking to protect the public from undue harm, and for the rest of us who are keen to live better lives but mindful of any unintended consequences."

Robin Chase, cofounder and former CEO, Zipcar--
"David's writing is just so pleasing, and his ideas so interesting and useful, that I found myself reveling in his words, nudging my partner and saying, 'Let me read you this bit . . . '"

Joichi Ito, Director, MIT Media Lab--
"With classic Weinberger wit and brilliant insight, this book shatters the myth of predictability while delivering grounded, actionable advice for anyone trying to thrive in the everyday chaos that has become our world. A page-turner must-read for everyone."
