*The Second Machine Age*

The authors are Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, and the subtitle is Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies.

I have written enough on related issues that a review seems pointless, but after having read it through I will say a) it will be one of the most important books of the coming year, and b) everyone should read it.  It will be out January 20, 2014.

Here is Pethokoukis on the book, with a handy summary.  Here is a new Tim Harford column citing the book.
