About the Author:

Alvin Toffler (1928–2016) was an American writer and futurist whose list of bestselling books includes Future Shock, The Third Wave, and Powershift. He was a cofounder of Toffler Associates, a consulting firm for companies and governments worldwide on advances in economics, technology, and social change. In France, where his work won the prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger (Best Foreign Book Prize), Alvin was named an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Review:

“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
