Review: Future Shock

User Review  - Pam - Goodreads

The ideas in this book are excellent, but it drags on and on because for most of the issues the author attempts to gently introduce the idea until you are feeling your eyes close. Finally the issue is dealt with, but really it could be done in a few paragraphs. It was hard to keep reading. Read full review
