Review published Mar 2007.
This is the culmination of decades of work predicting the future, and is thought-provoking reading for anyone interested in the direction the world is headed. The knowledge revolution has been underway long enough for it to be clearly identified as a revolutionary trend, as the world's workers shift away from manufacturing to the thinking and services sectors. The rate of change is increasing, and traditional dollar economics is falling short of charting the changes in the world economy, because it fails to count a great deal of important human endeavor. The Tofflers' machine-gun presentation may leave the reader breathless at times, but the book is good medicine for those who hope that by sticking their heads in the sand, they can escape the increasingly rapid changes in the world around them.
