About the Author

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book, when taken in the context of it's publication date. It is even more amazing today.
By swapping out communism for one of today's evils, it would be frighteningly contemporary.

There are 5-6 pages toward the middle where a newspaper editor writes on of the most powerful op ed pieces I have every read about the American condition.

This is truly a timeless read. The names have changed, but the stakes have not......

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Didnt have too much hope for this book because it was written in the 50's but just let me say I was totally wrong and I thoroughly enjoyed it; enough so that I am in the middle of reading his other book, "TRIUMPH". I highly recommend this book written by one of the original pioneers of Science Fiction. It gives you an excellent glimpse into the mindset of post Word War II when everyone went to bed everynight wondering if the "Reds" would be dropping the atom bomb on them at any moment. I also found the idea, practice and implementation of Civil Defense interesting. Living in earthquake prone California, I beieve that Civil Defense is something that should be brought back with a vengence and taken seriously. Afterall, do you really want to sit around after a disaster and wait for the Government to show up and help you? Can anyone say "Katrina"? Great book that will provoke intelligent thinking. What more can you ask for?

15 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Craig Chilton -- xanadu4@ibm.net on December 3, 1997
Format: Textbook Binding
Several characters are followed through this fascinating novel, setting great groundwork for their experiences when nuclear war suddenly comes to America... and their city.
Wylie wrote this at the time when it was JUST becoming possible for nuclear warheads to be delivered by missiles, so bombers and missiles both come into play. So does germ warfare. And the result is a horrendously realistic account of nuclear war as only such a masterful author and researcher as Philip Wylie could portray it. The TV movie, "The Day After," came along decades later, and scared the wits out of many of its viewers... but that was a Sunday walk in the park compared to THIS story. THIS is the real deal, and when you set this book down, you'll find that it's a story you'll never forget.
By the way, if you enjoy this, then you MUST track down a copy of Wylie's LATER nuclear war novel, "Triumph," and decide for yourself whether or not he topped this earlier work. It's a toss-up!

Format: Textbook Binding
A moderately well written "end of the world as we know it" book. A great book gets me concerned about the well being of the characters but I just didn't get worked up about them. (Especially the kid who sometimes seemed more a device for exposition than a real child.) The action was good though and the underlying cold war "duck and cover" paranoia seeps through beautifully. Very good with minor flaws.

"Tomorrow" is a good book. However, I thought "Triumph" was a better read, despite being considerably darker. Still, this is worth reading, especially for those of us too young to know about "civil defense" drills firsthand.
"When Worlds Collide" and "After Worlds Collide" are Wylie's best, and I'd recommend them above "Tomorrow." If you can find them.

Format: Textbook Binding
Some of the descriptions of destruction in "Tomorrow" read almost like the news reports of the World Trade Center tragedy in New York.
Although we now know that the aftermath of a nuclear strike would be much worse than Wylie describes, one of the small points near the end of the book may have a greater significance than the author realized.
After the destruction caused in the downtown area, one character comments about future workplaces. The premise was that since people would no longer want to work in the dense, high-rise buildings that were such an easy target, rebuilding would be done as numerous smaller, scattered buildings on the periphery of the city.
Have we finally discovered what Wylie wrote 30 years ago: an impressive address - whether the WTC in New York or Peachtree Street in Atlanta - may have value only in its ability to attract unwanted attention and create a target?
