In Take The Robot Out of The Human, Julian Boram writes to help readers adapt to the new digital world and develop the right mindset and habits that are likely to improve their chances of succeeding in business. Readers are provided with different case studies of top companies around the world and several comprehensive exercises for full understanding and incorporating the recommendations. The first part of the book looks into why building digital muscle or digital EQ is important and why adaptation must be realized to survive current and future changes. Following this, Julian introduces readers to the five key pillars that will help them build their digital EQ. In the final section, readers are taught how to deliver effective digital transformations as they build their digital EQ.

Julian Boram's practical and in-depth book is like a map for reaching desired financial destinations in an industry that is quickly becoming more sophisticated with technology. My understanding of technology's role in today's businesses has increased immensely through the book's insight. Take The Robot Out of The Human is filled with well-researched information and lessons, like the news that Gucci’s revenue and market growth was "attributed to their internet and digital strategies." With clear language and a helpful, generous tone, the book brings readers up to speed on the technological changes that are happening in the top companies around the world and what is needed to succeed and stay ahead of the curve. Skeptics and businesspeople who still stick to traditional ways of doing business will be convinced to accept using and learning more about technology when they go through this book. Every business owner and enthusiast should read it!

We live in an age where every company that wants to survive has to adapt to the technological revolution taking place. Since many processes have now been or are going to be automated soon, business and finance professionals must understand what they need to do to stay relevant in the next decade. In the book Take The Robot Out of The Human, Julian Boram offers these professionals five key pillars to make it possible for them to keep up with the times. They will discover why and how to build a digital EQ (Emotional Quotient) and how to apply it. Among the many topics, they will understand why continuous learning is indispensable, why partnerships and ecosystems are important, and what a modern entrepreneurial spirit is.

Take The Robot Out of The Human is a handy manual that every professional should have on their desk. I like that Julian Boram clearly organizes the topics, dividing them into three sections and adding many case studies, exercises, and practical summaries at the end of each part. In this way, his book will help professionals get a clear picture of the situation. I am sure this book will help thousands of readers clear up any doubts they may have and help them understand the new digital age that could otherwise overwhelm them. Boram has been a great help to them, and I am sure his book will enlighten countless professionals. I recommend Take The Robot Out of The Human to anyone wanting to be successful in the new era.
