Summary
In 1901, the great writer and social critic attempted to predict the future in this book, a fascinating mix of accurate forecasts - development of cars, buses and trucks, use of flying machines in combat, decline of permanent marriage - and wild misses, including the prediction that submarines will suffocate their crews and founder at sea. Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought, generally known as Anticipations, was written by H.G. Wells at the age of 34. He later called the book, which became a bestseller, "the keystone to the main arch of my work." (Excerpt from Goodreads)
