NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * The classic work that predicted the anxieties of a world upended by rapidly emerging technologies--and now provides a road map to solving many of our most pressing crises.  "Explosive . . . brilliantly formulated." --The Wall Street Journal  Future Shock is the classic that changed our view of tomorrow. Its startling insights into accelerating change led a president to ask his advisers for a special report, inspired composers to write symphonies and rock music, gave a powerful new concept to social science, and added a phrase to our language. Published in over fifty countries, Future Shock is the most important study of change and adaptation in our time.  In many ways, Future Shock is about the present. It 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.  But Future Shock also illuminates the world of tomorrow by exploding countless clichés about today. It vividly describes the emerging global civilization: the rise of new businesses, subcultures, lifestyles, and human relationships--all of them temporary.  Future Shock will intrigue, provoke, frighten, encourage, and, above all, change everyone who reads it.… (mais)

Pop pessimistic futurism, a genre that entered the mainstream after Toffler. ( )

I think that [a:Alvin Toffler|3030|Alvin Toffler|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1226226386p2/3030.jpg] had a glimpse or prophetic insight as to what the future held for a society who continue to excel at technological advances.

I read several reviews from 2007 & 2008 - I don't agree with those who were critical of [b: Future Shock|466537|Future Shock|Alvin Toffler|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1175007455s/466537.jpg|280121] but I read it as a young person, and the peek into another dimension of how humans can so easily shed their warmth and humanity never left me.

When the movie Soylent Green came out in 1973, it was a portion taken from "Future Shock," but the entire book was nothing like the movie.

I have always been leary of Soy since then - good thing for me...tofu? Hmm. ( )

Very well known book about the future seen from the aspect of the 1970s.
Efada's private copy.

After a while, Future Shock ceases to be shocking. The trends that were interesting in 1970 are just status quo in 2009. Maybe it's a generational thing: I came of age during the era of rapid change, so it's no big deal. ( )

In the three short decades between now and the twenty-first century, millions of ordinary, psychologically normal people will face an abrupt collision with the future.

...advancing technology tends to lower the costs of manufacture much more rapidly than the costs of repair work. The one is automated, the other remains largely a handcraft operation. This means that it often becomes cheaper to replace than repair. It is economically sensible to build cheap, unrepairable, throw-away objects, even though they may not last as long as repairable objects.
In the technological systems of tomorrow - fast, fluid and self-regulating - machines will deal with the flow of physical materials; men with the flow of information and insight. Machines will increasingly perform the routine tasks; men the intellectual and creative tasks. Machines and men both, instead of being concentrated in gigantic factories and factory cities, will be scattered across the globe, linked together by amazingly sensitive, near-instantaneous communications. Human work will move out of the factory and mass office into the community and the home.
As we move from poverty toward affluence, politics changes from what mathematicians call a zero sum game into a non-zero sum game. In the first, if one player wins another must lose. In the second, all players can win. Finding non-zero sum solutions to our social problems requires all the imagination we can muster. A system for generating imaginative policy ideas could help us take maximum advantage of the non-zero opportunities ahead.
