Review quote

"Revealing, exciting, encouraging, brilliant."--The Christian Science Monitor

"In the risky business of social and cultural criticism, there appears an occasional book that manages . . . to shape our perceptions of its times. Alvin Toffler's immensely readable yet disquieting study may service the same purpose for our own increasingly volatile world."--Newsweek

"Alvin Toffler has sent something of a shock-wave through Western society."--Daily Express (London)

"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 Time of India
