    What a wonderful look back at where we were

    There is so much content that remains relevant. Things that really show the foresight put forth by Mr. Van Winkle. I recommend this book for anyone interested in technology and the future. Sci-Fi fans should enjoy this as well, as it's a glimpse into what really could lie ahead for humanity.
