From Publishers Weekly:

Dent (The Great Boom Ahead) maintains, "It won't be long before you... find something important missing from your career. Your job may vanish, or maybe your company will go AWOL." Using 50-year economic forecasts, the author delineates his controversial theories: the economic future is positive and predictable; information technologies will revolutionize businesses, creating teams, entrepreneurs and home-based specialists and generalists; and revamped companies free from bureaucracies and organized around customer needs will emerge. While well crafted, Dent's untempered optimism is debatable. Despite a carload of useful suggestions to prepare the go-getter for the future job market, he evades the issue of how a changing economy will impact on individuals working at low-level service or manufacturing jobs, or on those lacking language or computer skills.

From Library Journal:

Did you lose your job to a computer? Dent, a management consultant and speaker, "foretells" a revolution in the workplace caused by changes in information technology. The story is an old saw, but one with two edges. Dent asserts that although many of us will lose our jobs as "bureaucrats," information technology will free us to use our creative side to make our living. In the end, all of this "downsizing" will yield a prosperous and more productive society. Most of Job Shock is a well-worn litany of management imperatives, but there are moments of inspiration. The key to riding the next employment wave is to become an entrepreneurial consultant, not unlike Dent.
