The Gig Economy: The Complete Guide to Getting Better Work, Taking More Time Off, and Financing the Life You Want (AMACOM , 2016)

This book is an absolute must-read and a huge eye-opener about the way work and our economy are evolving. The author makes a powerful case that the Gig Economy is here to stay and there’s simply no turning back. Yet she presents this as an opportunity rather than something to be afraid of or intimidated by. Although the book talks about both the pros and cons of the Gig Economy (in terms of the fact that there are both winners and losers), it convincingly presents the pros as far outweighing the cons and is extremely energizing in walking readers through the various ways of taking advantage of these pros. My all time favorite: the last line, which reads, “When we ask kids of the future what they want to be when they grow up they won’t have an answer. They’ll have a list.”
