The most important positive effect of the Industrial Revolution, particularly in the long term, has been that it has given us all sorts of material goods. The Industrial Revolution made it easier to make various kinds of products (starting with clothing) much more cheaply. This means anyone can afford things that were rare before the Industrial Revolution.
The major negative effect was that the Industrial Revolution caused bad conditions for the working class. They had to work in very poor conditions for low wages. They lived in cramped and unhealthy apartments in dirty cities.

The positive effect of the industrial revolution was that people did not have to depend on farming, which is really an unstable profession. The negative effect was that they had to depend on employers, especially factories, and the work was often unhealthy.
