In this thought-provoking study of work, worker, and machine in the postindustrial age, Hirschhorn points out that factories will become places of learning where the worker must be able to diagnose and solve an array of problems generated by error-prone machine systems.

About the Author:

Larry Hirschhorn is principal and senior research manager at the Wharton Center for Applied Research.

Review:

Ever since Henry Ford decided to build cars on an assembly line, monotony has been the lot of a growing number of American workers. Larry Hirschhorn has good news: the postindustrial age will bring variety and challenge to factory work.

(Robert Wright The New York Times Book Review)
