Shock jock

Dizzyhead Thomas mentioned he'd picked up a copy of Alvin Toffler's Future Shock (with a hot pink cover). I asked what it was about, and he replied:

"Future Shock is about the present.

"Future Shock is about what is happening today to people and groups who are overwhelmed by change. Change affects our products, communities, organizations—even our patterns of friendship and love.

"Future Shock vividly describes the emerging super-industrial world—tomorrow’s family life, the rise of new businesses, subcultures, life-styles and human relationships—all of them temporary.

"Future Shock illuminates the world of tomorrow by exploding countless cliches about today.

"Future Shock will intrigue, provoke, frighten, encourage and, above all, change everyone who reads it."
