Reviews

"Explosive . . . brilliantly formulated."--The Wall Street Journal "A spectacular outcrop of a formidable, organized intellectual effort."--Manchester Guardian "Revealing, exciting, encouraging, brilliant."--The Christian Science Monitor "Immensely readable."--Newsweek "Alvin Toffler has sent something of a shock-wave through Western society."--London Daily Express "To the elite . . . who often get committed to age-old institutions or material goals alone, let Toffler's Future Shock be a lesson and a warning."--The Times of India "The best study of our times that I know. . . . Of all the books that I have read in the last 20 years, it is by far the one that has taught me the most."--Le Figaro

Richard Scott on
 
Toffler's Future Shock is something similar to what science fiction writers have discussed many times. What happens when you throw advanced technology and concepts at a more primitive people (human/alien/mineral/vegetable) or whatever.

Here he is talking about us, and the seeming increasing pace of change, and the general inability of people to keep up with it. While this may be true for some, being in his 35 years ahead future now, with all the people on the planet wandering around with mobile phones, is this really the case for mankind in general?
