Summary
Reveals predictions made in "Popular Mechanics" magazine between 1903 and 1969 about what the future would hold! "Surrounded by wonders and a fast-evolving culture of innovation, it's just as chalenging today for us to imagine the next century as it must have been for our early 20th century colleagues to envision the fabled year 2000." -- p.6
