Cover design for Being Human by Debra Stevens
Being Human is addressed to those who are used to thinking, especially thinking about the future. Technology is penetrating our lives, robots are learning to do the work that humans used to do. Will the professions of a driver or a cardiac surgeon still remain in twenty years, or will they disappear just like lamplighters and telegraph operators? What qualities should we develop to remain professional in those areas where robots will surely not replace humans? How to make effective use of the opportunities of the new world? These questions are discussed by Debra Stevens in her book.
The cover hints that even in the world of robots, humans can take the leading place by using their definitive advantage: the ability to change.
