User Review  - Doug - Goodreads

Some of the predictions on technology are unintentionally hilarious (people with gills! flying cities!) but his premise about man's limited capabilities to deal with change and how this affects ... Read full review

User Review  - Lori - Goodreads

I'll admit it. I had to read it in high school. But certain concepts definitely resonated with me at 17. Even more resonated at 27, particularly even though the book had been written in 1970, some concepts had come true, and were continuing to come to fruition. Read full review

Review: Future Shock

User Review  - Victoria - Goodreads

Reading, in 2011, a book written in 1970 about the future was interesting. Frankly, a lot of what Toffler said then could still be said today. Meaning: not much progress in preparing for the future. Read full review

User Review  - Sean Meriwether - Goodreads

I cannot believe how much Future Shock is a part of my background. While reading it I remembered direct quotes spoken by my mother and teachers; it was hugely popular in the 70's. Toffler's overall ... Read full review

Still one of the most important and influential books of all time. Alvin and his wife Heidi are still active futurists and as such give us all hope. Read full review
