Books on RPA (Robotics Process Automation) that I mentioned in the webinar

Below are links to books I showed during the webinar. I put them into two groups (those I like/recommend and those I don’t). I’m more of a “glass is half-full” kind of guy and think technology is good. The books I don’t recommend were much more negative towards technology. While I don’t recommend them, I think time will tell who is right/wrong.  Personally any of the following you buy I’d try and buy as used.  Many are pretty expensive new (probably because of the small market size)

Recommended Robotics Process Automation books

Service Automation: Robots and the Future of Work 2016 -Great book!
