Unquestionably, the advance of technology has made life much simpler for the human race, harnessing the power of automation to reduce the toil of manual labor and help speed up our busy lives. The question many fail to ask is: at what cost?

Managing Editor Nathan Evans talks with technology writer and Pulitzer Prize finalist Nicholas Carr to talk his latest book, The Glass Cage: Automation and Us, available now. From Paul Bunyan to Einstein, Inuit navigation to self-driving cars and much more, hear why Mr. Carr thinks adding a little caution to the digital winds may not be such a bad idea.
