5.0 out of 5 stars Today predicted 32 years ago, 1 Aug 2002

This review is from: Future Shock (Paperback)
Future Shock is an amazing book. Perhaps the most remarkable feature is how relevant it is to today when it was written in 1970 in an almost unrecognizably different world. It describes the many aspects of change in our current world in a lively and relevant fashion. Amusingly the only bit which is really wide of the mark is the predictions of the future where Toffler interviewed various people at the then cutting edge and asked them about the year 2000. Robots were vastly over-rated and computers vastly under-rated amongst other anomalies. In most other respects it is a brilliant description of current Western society which should convince the most conservative mind that the world is undergoing a revolution of a greater order than any before.
