Future Shock is about the present. Future Shock is about what is happening today to people and groups who are overwhelmed by change. Change affects our products, communities, organizations--even our patterns of friendship and love.
Future Shock vividly describes the emerging global civilization: tomorrow's family life, the rise of new businesses, subcultures, life-styles, and human relationships--all of them temporary.
Future Shock illuminates the world of tomorrow by exploding countless clich s about today.
Future Shock will intrigue, provoke, frighten, encourage, and, above all, change everyone who reads it.
