Predicting is a risky business, but for bystanders, faulty forecasts have the makings of great fun. For decades, for instance, the pundits of Popular Mechanics rolled out illustrated features about flying cars and buses, mail-sorting robots, and underground cities that piqued our youthful interest but didn't always achieve widespread fruition. All these utopian fancies and more reemerge in this refreshingly retro, delightfully rich collection of past predictions of our future. The illustrations alone are worth the price of the book. Every chapter features an introduction by scientist and science fiction writer Gregory Banford.
