A changing future
on 11 August 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
As both a scientist and a science fiction fan, I was quite taken with Nick Sagan's new book. He clearly, yet critically, reviewed many of science fiction's (both written and video formats) predictions about the future, and he described how reality had followed those predictions or had taken a completely different turn. I would recommend this book for any "futurist" who wants to see what the world does -- and could -- look like.
