More than twenty years ago, in 1990, writer and futurist Alvin Toffler (October 4, 1928–June 27, 2016), whom you might recall as the author of the Future Shock, penned Powershift: Knowledge, Wealth, and Violence at the Edge o. .

More than twenty years ago, in 1990, writer and futurist Alvin Toffler (October 4, 1928–June 27, 2016), whom you might recall as the author of the Future Shock, penned Powershift: Knowledge, Wealth, and Violence at the Edge of the 21st Century (public library) - a visionary lens on how social, political, and economic power structures are changing at the dawn. Knowledge itsel. urns out to be not only the source of the highest-quality power, but also the most important ingredient of force and wealth. Put differently, knowledge has gone from being an adjunct of money power and muscle power, to being their very essence. It is, in fact, the ultimate amplifier.

After "Future Shock" I was anxious to see how Mr. Toffler would carry forward the account of accelerating change and what we can do differently to anticipate its impact by joining it. As we face this shift which includes monopolization of violence (law and order); sublimation of violence into law; and population's dependence on money I couldn't help wondering whether the next power shift should be ethics. That is stop wasting resources on protection from the ravages of greed and dishonesty. Could we develop a society that has learned how to control the selfish ego while harnessing the ingenuity and initiative that have often been driven by selfish greed? Thank you, Alvin, for opening my mind with deeply researched and very understandably expressed logical theories that summarize the human condition and enabling readers to "see the way forward."

Why should you read a book written almost 30 years ago? Because there are special people like the Toffler's that can see the future. This book I read when it was released and just re-read it. When I read it for the first time, my painful conversations with my blue-color friends, on why it was okay to be in a service economy vs.a manufacturing economy led to a painful breakdown on why we were moving toward a knowledge economy. This book needs to be read, so that, we all can understand, that just as it is ignorant to forget the past, it is just as erroneous to ignore the future. Toffler's book is an amazing seminal reading of how special people can see into the future. When you read it you will be amazed as to how almost everything predicted happened over the last 30 years did happen in retrospect. And it will lead you to understand why time is being compressed and what took 30 years to unfold will likely happen in 1/10 of the time.

Powershift is one of the best readers' books on new transformation at the edge of 21st Century with 25 assumptions on power, knowledge, wealth and violence. It serious has predicted the contribution on new forces arise to tower over the earth and recognized the potential of using information as a fighting tool, published the initiative to make command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) systems responsive to the fighter; to field these systems quickly; to capitalize on advances in technology; and to shape our doctrine to reflect these changes. Alvin Toffler has drawn the roadmap on how the societies speed toward their collision with tomorrow. The enduring success of nation in the 21st Century is assured by its inherent ability to capture change. This book `must read' for everyone who want to know the possibilities of the future.
