ULTIMATE BOOK OF THE FUTURE

The year 2050 is only 28 years from now, but by then we could be living in a world much different than now. This fantastic and honest look at the inventions that are on the horizon will affect us in areas of medicine, transportation, space travel, and how we have fun. Eight colorful and eye opening chapters are part speculation, part reality.

  1. THE FUTURE OF YOU
  2. GETTING AROUND
  3. GOING TO SPACE
  4. SAVING THE WORLD
  5. OUT AND ABOUT
  6. INSPIRED BY ANIMALS
  7. BUILDING BETTER BODIES
  8. FUTURE FUN

Based on what is coming, the world could truly be a better place to live and work in the future. All that is needed are brilliant minds to pursue those dreams—like the young readers of this book.

Many enticing features well get you excited by the possibilities. Scattered throughout are two-page spreads about the Jobs of Tomorrow. Maybe you will apply to become a Robot-Human Communicator or a Conservation Technologist. Another fun and engaging feature is about future ideas that have failed like Instant Healing or a Mission to Alpha Centauri.

ULTIMATE BOOK OF THE FUTURE is perfect for at home or in school. It will surely get readers talking about what they want to have happen in their own future. Let’s pull this one out every few years to see just how close we are getting to the predictions laid out here.

Inspiring and thought provoking, Don’t miss this one! A thrilling and eye opening ride all the way.
