"This book is an example of the richness of analysis possible from information that connects labour demand and labour supply information... some of the thinking behind the methodology of Vanishing Jobs has proved to be an important spur and guide to the development of such data in Canada..."

— Canadian Journal of Economics

"Co-authors Lars Osberg, Fred Wien and Jan Grude discuss what business and governments can do to ease job loses during this transition in a book with the working title Vanishing Jobs."

— Quill & Quire

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"This book looks at the impact computer technology has had primarily in the traditional work place, where machine is replacing man and how those businesses are coping with the change."
