In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system. He explores the dangers of a society built on credit. He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential. He even asks whether we should rethink our roles in life – as students, parents, workers, and voters – and what the aims of an ideal society of the future should be.
Provocative and thoughtful as ever, he sets out the questions we all need to ask ourselves - and points us in the direction of some of the answers.

Good for prompting your own thinking
A good overview about labor and society issues of the 21th century, by somebody who has years reflecting on these issues. You begin to ask yourself where you agree and where not and why, a first step in forming your own ideas about the issues brought about by the information revolution. I enjoyed also the reading, it sounds very authentic; no intention to create any theatrical effect.
