Readers will benefit from fluid, well-researched reviews of technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, quantum computing, augmented reality, 3D printing, and nanotechnology, and will acquire the factual contexts needed to make insightful decisions as these technologies slowly, but surely, pop up in their occupational nexuses.
