Work[edit]

Books[edit]

McAfee's first book, Enterprise 2.0: New Collaborative Tools for Your Organization's Toughest Challenges, brings together case studies and examples with key concepts from economics, sociology, computer science, consumer psychology, and management studies of how leading organizations are incorporating the web's novel tools and philosophies.[7]

His second book, Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy, co-authored with Erik Brynjolfsson, brings together a range of data, examples, and research to show that the average US worker is being left behind by advances in technology.[8]

In September 2014, he co-authored the book Leading Digital – Turning Technology into Business Transformation, with George Westermann (MIT) and Didier Bonnet (Capgemini Consulting).

In 2016 and 2018 McAfee cowrote two more books with Brynjolfsson, titled The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies and Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future respectively.

In October 2019, Scribner published More from Less: The Surprising Story of How We Learned to Prosper Using Fewer Resources — and What Happens Next.[9]
