Reviews

"Geoff Colvin's fresh take on how to respond to the rise of brilliant machines and the changing nature of work is as wise as it is inspiring."
--DOMINIC BARTON, global managing director, McKinsey & Company

"Beautifully written and deeply researched, Humans Are Underrated is one of the most creative and insightful leadership books I have ever read. It is a triumph!"
--DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian

"A powerful exposition of the strengths and limitations of technology in shaping our lives and addressing today's greatest challenges. More than ever, as Colvin demonstrates, we need people who embody the most human of qualities. An uplifting account of the enduring potential of humanity itself."
--PAUL POLMAN, CEO, Unilever

"As machines inexorably become ever more competent at doing machinelike things, interpersonal skills, irreplaceable skills of human interaction, will come to be recognized as being even more valuable than they've always been. This is an extremely important, highly practical, and indeed exhilarating book."
--SIR MARTIN SORRELL, CEO, WPP
