Biography

His new book More From Less: How We Finally Learned to Prosper Using Fewer Resources – and What Happens Next has been published in October 2019.

His 2014 book The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies, coauthored with Erik Brynjolfsson, won several awards and has been both a New York Times and Wall Street Journal top ten bestseller. Another book with Brynjolfsson, Machine | Platform | Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future, published in 2017, offers an executive’s guide to succeeding during this turbulent era. These books have been translated into more than 15 languages, and McAfee and Brynjolfsson are the only people named to both the Thinkers50 list of the world’s top management thinkers and the Politico 50 group of people transforming American politics.

McAfee has written for publications including Foreign Affairs, Harvard Business Review, the Economist, the Wall St. Journal, and The New York Times. He’s talked about his work on CNN and 60 Minutes, at the World Economic Forum, TED, and the Aspen Ideas Festival, with Tom Friedman, Fareed Zakaria, and Tom Ashbrook, and in front of many international and domestic audiences.

McAfee was educated at MIT and Harvard. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, watches too much Red Sox baseball, doesn’t ride his motorcycle enough, and starts his weekends with the NYT Saturday crossword.
