"Explosive . . . brilliantly formulated."--The Wall Street Journal "A spectacular outcrop of a formidable, organized intellectual effort."--Manchester Guardian "Revealing, exciting, encouraging, brilliant."--The Christian Science Monitor "Immensely readable."--Newsweek "Alvin Toffler has sent something of a shock-wave through Western society."--London Daily Express "To the elite . . . who often get committed to age-old institutions or material goals alone, let Toffler's Future Shock be a lesson and a warning."--The Times of India
"The best study of our times that I know. . . . Of all the books that I have read in the last 20 years, it is by far the one that has taught me the most."--Le Figaro
