As the year 2000 approaches, Berry uses current research information, technology, and scientific knowledge to offer an imaginative and wide-ranging look at the amazing possibilities of life in the next five centuries.

The next 500 years: life in the coming millenniumUser Review - Book Verdict
Berry is the science correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and writes a regular column for Astronomy Now magazine. This is not a Nostradamus book of predictions but an extrapolation of scientific fact. Stimulating and thought-provoking, it is divided into two sections: the future on earth and the future in space. Perhaps Berry's most unsettling prediction is the storage of human personalities on computer disk for retrieval after death. He also firmly believes that space--the Moon and Mars--will be settled by private industry and not by government-sponsored programs. Judging by the number of people who have inquired about my review copy, there is considerable interest in the future--a future that many of us will not live long enough to see. Four appendixes, a glossary, informative footnotes, and substantial notes and references round out this well-written tome. Recommended for public libraries and academic libraries that collect popular science works.--James Olson, Northeastern Illinois University Lib., Chicago
