The Optimistic Jew  Aug 31, 2007
This final volume of Toffler's trilogy argues that the control of knowledge has become the principal means to create wealth and power. In a way, the book predicted the productivity explosion of the 90's and the birth of the knowledge economy even before the "invention" of the www. His arguments about the growing conflict between the flexibility required by the knowledge economy and the inherent inflexibility of bureaucratic structures were a natural continuation of his Third Wave vs. Second Wave mentality: "...all bureaucracies discourage out-of-frame thinking and the examination of root premises." This book, along with "The Third Wave", provides useful methodological metaphors for critically analyzing 21st century Jewish life and proposing alternative Jewish futures based on the opportunities of globalization. This is what I tried to do in my book "The Optimistic Jew: a Positive Vision for the Jewish People in the 21st Century".
Fifteen years later A different world. Toffler as the author of 'Future Shock'  Dec 7, 2005
Toffler is the man who gave the world ' future shock'. He is one of the principal popularizers in helping the broader public understand the social implications of scientific and technological changes. The pace is too fast, taught Toffler, for our bodies and minds to really keep up.
Having shocked the world with 'Future Shock' and tried to revolutionize our thinking with 'The Third Wave' Toffler here again makes an effort at coining an Age-Defining- Concept. However here as with 'The Third Wave' a whole bookful of intelligent insights are not enough to make a concept strike home. For all of us Toffler will be in the years to come , 'Mr. Future- Shock' and nothing else.
As for the Power shifts, I would simply point out Reality usually defies our predictions for it. Toffler's book did not have the 'Internet' it did not have the rise of Radical Fundamelist Islam. It did not have suicide bombers and a huge China and a growing India standing greedily at the Middle East petrol pump.
Even the greatest prophet mises a lot.
Great Book  Apr 24, 2005
This is a great book though i read it in 2005, 15 years after its publishing!!! A great futuristic reading
As good as it can get  Oct 18, 2004
Amazing insights .... coupled with relevant interlinking between the socio- eco - political environment ..... makes it an interesting reading. Did someone say its all about paradigm ? Guess YES.
Excellent Book  Jun 6, 2004
All of Toffler's books are amazing. I can't say enough good things about them. Those who do not like his books are clearly just those types who hate anything that becomes too popular. Someone should explane to them that just because something is well-liked doesn't mean it suddenly lacks value. Toffler has predicted so much that has become true. His great ability to use social science to show us the future is beyond impressive. Future Shock, The Third Wave, and Powershift. Read all three.
