Books on the Digitalization of Industry
Most of my books are technical ones and revolve around industry, specifically their use of digital tools and processes, that is, their digitalization, the digitalization of their processes. Books about engineering and technology, but understandable also for non-technical people.
My books are meeting with great interest not only in German and English-speaking countries, but also in China. The first one on Industry 4.0, for example, became a bestseller there, with well over 200,000 copies sold. (The picture shows it from the departure lounge at Beijing airport).
The more digitalization and connecting became state of the art, the more digitalization permeated not only industry but our entire lives, the further I stretched the arc in my books as well.
Without meaningful digitalization, we will neither be able to slow down climate change nor shape our life on Mother Earth peacefully and with a promising future.
With “The Web of Digitalization,” I have written a popular nonfiction book. A book that is not aimed at experts, but at the general public. Numerous book launches provided the opportunity for discussions with an audience that extended far beyond my previous readership. I would like to continue this discourse.
Many media have been newly added by the digital in the last three decades. They make writing books easier and faster. Not least because they simultaneously help to access books and knowledge stored in other ways more quickly. But only in a book can you really deal with a topic in the appropriate depth. That’s why there will continue to be books from me. Here is a partial list of recent publications, with a direct link to the respective publisher.
