Everyone knows that we are on the verge of a new world, a world in which the inventions, the discoveries, the potentialities of the past decade can no longer be held in leash. Mr. Leonard introduces us to the wonders of a new fairyland, untapped sources of power, new raw materials, machines that see and think -- virtually -- for themselves, goods that can be produced at much lower cost, transportation and communication eliminating time and space, houses, built in factories, run by electricity. He shows us too the responsibilities of this new world, the challenge of individual and group adaptation to greater wealth, greater leisure, the problem of the man who is no longer needed. A thrilling book, which bears out the prophecies made by the technocrats.
