Humans Are Underrated
What High Achievers Know That Brilliant Machines Never Will
Geoff Colvin is an award-winning thinker, author, broadcaster, and speaker on today’s most significant business trends. His brand-new and already-acclaimed book, Humans Are Underrated, looks at how machines are becoming more and more competent—and as a result, how irreplaceable, interpersonal human skills are becoming more crucial than ever before.
As a longtime editor and columnist for Fortune, Colvin has become one of America’s sharpest and most respected commentators on leadership, globalization, wealth creation, and the info-tech revolution. As a speaker, Colvin has engaged hundreds of audiences around the world, ranging in size from 10 to 10,000. Audiences especially appreciate his remarkable perspective: He has analyzed companies and business leaders worldwide as they confront the largest issues of our time, and has seen what distinguishes the winners from the losers.
“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
Colvin is also the author of The Upside of the Downturn, an guide to business management during a recession, and Angel Customers & Demon Customers, the book that launched today's mushrooming interest in customer-centricity. His latest book is a follow-up to his groundbreaking bestseller Talent is Overrated, which looks at the factors which separate world-class performers from everyone else. As the former anchor of Wall Street Week with FORTUNE on PBS, he spoke each week to the largest audience reached by any business television program in America.
