After Shock: Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock 50 years later

Summary: The Abundant World Institute presents a book of leading futurist reflecting about the past 50 years and the next 50 years.

Futurizonte Editor’s Note: I still remember reading Toffler’s book in Spanish decades ago and, later, in English. I also read many of John Naisbitt’s books, including, of course, Megratrends. It is good to know there is still a lot more to read and learn about the future.
