Debora Spar, author of Work, Mate, Marry, Love is a Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and the former president of Barnard College. Her previous books include Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection and Ruling the Waves: Cycles of Discovery, Chaos, and Wealth from the Compass to the Internet. Her new groundbreaking book covers decisions we make in our most intimate lives—whom to marry, how to have children, how to think about love and romance and families. Spar argues that all of these choices have always been driven by technology. Technology not only promises to change our commercial and economic lives, but also our family lives, our sexual lives, and ultimately the very nature of life itself.
