It really makes you look forward to parts of our future, but also worry about others. You can't help but worry about shortages in the future. Hopefully some of the ideas brought forth in this book will help us deal with the drastic changes we are bound to see

I briefly read some of the authors ideas after going to his website and purchasing his book. I would have to say I was thinking along similar lines about 3D Printers and their potential, about Biological engineering, but disagreed on the topic of fusion as a potential source of power in the future. I would have liked to hear about magnetic self powered alternators generating energy instead. I have written also about potential problems in the future, concerning humankind population growth, biological engineering, waste recycling, future computers, subatomic assemblers, and many other topics. I do, however, recommend this book as a start.

Written in a manner that does not require a degree or diploma to understand The topics are all addressed as separate concerns &/or possible options for solution or development.

Fascinating & at the same time scary.

Politicians and corporations, both past & present, continue to promote the idea to 'blind-folded' populations and consumers that the party will never end. Everything is great now, forget about the future - and, don't bother about the mess, someone else will clean it up!

Personally, I would recommend this to be compulsory reading for any students from High School entry onwards. The youth/students of today are the people who have the opportunity to raise these issues with the present-day parents and adults who will be or are currently acting in manners that will affect their very future & the sustainability of a healthy lifestyle.
