Description:

In The New Division of Labor, Frank Levy and Richard Murnane show how computers are changing the employment landscape and how the right kinds of education can ease the transition to the new job market. They merge stories of people at work with insights from cognitive science, computer science, and economics to show how computers are enhancing productivity in many jobs even as they eliminate other jobs. Using detailed examples, the authors describe how our adjustment to the computerized workplace can begin in earnest.
