Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richard Green Chambers Review from previous edition Perhaps the forthcoming tidal wave of technology set to engulf us all will throw up new opportunities for the legal profession which is probably why just about every lawyer in London, so we are told, has bought a copy of this challenging, provocative, timely and important book. If you care about the future of your profession and wish to add further comment to the raging controversies surrounding it, better get yourself a
copy now.


Richard Waters, Financial Times In The Future of the Professions, father-and-son authors Richard and Daniel Susskind do a remorselessly effective job of demolishing the self-deception most people engage in when comparing themselves to machines.


The Economist The authors are undoubtedly right that the professions will change more in the next quarter-century than they have in the previous three.


Tom Watson, The Guardian Remarkable work.


Giles Wilkes, Prospect This is a bold book ... The Future of the Professions helps us to recognise the professions' current methods as convoluted, self-serving rituals designed to wrap simple tasks in mystique.


David Pannick, The Times The Future of the Professions is a paradox that only a human mind could appreciate: the inevitable death of the professions is presented in an expert, original and witty work by two professionals whose skills (in thinking, writing and consultancy) are unlikely any time soon to be replicated by a machine.


Dan Pinnington, Slaw The Future of the Professions: How Technology Will Transform the Work of Human Experts, is a must read for anyone who wants to gain insights into where the legal profession is going ... Nothing else I have read more clearly and convincingly elucidates the future of legal services and how technology will transform the traditional practice of law.


Prospect Magazine An act of delicious iconoclasm.


Chris Yapp, Future Tech Blog Both a good read and a good starter for strategic planning in professional firms


Dan Bindman, Legal Futures I suggest that everyone who considers themselves 'professional' reads this book, especially those who are aged, say, 20-45, who need to secure their role in the new world of work. The authors predict that "our professions will be dismantled incrementally". If they are right, todays lawyers need to prepare for it, and the sooner the better.


Medium A fascinating and challenging book.


Network Review The study is exceptionally well informed and important contribution to thinking about the future of professional work


Law Skills As the saying is, the future is now and we ignore it at our peril. Please read this book.


Jeremy Hopkins, Future of Law The book is written in a relaxed, flowing and easily-consumable style ... a read of The Future of the Professions is time very well-spent.
