Summary

Survive the coming Digipocalypse! The combined power of all things digital is destroying and remaking everything: business, society, and your life. And it won't all be for the better. Think you've seen the biggest changes? You're wrong. The digital juggernaut is only beginning to accelerate. Don't get flattened: read Digital is Destroying Everything.

 

One institution, industry, and idea at a time, this explosive book reveals how digital is wiping out virtually everything you or anyone else ever held dear. Drawing on his unique perspective as both a futurist, entrepreneur, and Big Data pioneer, Edwards shows how digital is wiping out conventional media industries; long-cherished ideas of privacy, history, and human interaction; governments and the national consensuses they're founded upon; approaches to education that have survived for centuries; professions like law, medicine, and accounting; foundational ideas of value and profit and more.

 

Along the way, Edwards reveals the explosive implications of technical innovations like Google Glasses, previews the cyberwars and mass knowledge worker unemployment headed our way, and imagines the deep implications of a world where virtually all media is available all the time. Above all, he offers powerful advice for surviving the coming "Digipocalypse" in both your business and personal life – and maybe even coming away a winner.
