Summary

Summary

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, lifestyles, and human relationships—all of them temporary.

Future Shock illuminates the world of tomorrow by exploding countless clichés about today.

Future Shock will intrigue, provoke, frighten, encourage, and, above all, change everyone who reads it.
