I would have never picked this book off the library shelves myself, but on a recent road trip, my husband surprised us by playing this one, and I must admit, I was entertained. Not only does Wilson discuss the misguided predictions of science fiction authors of 50 years ago and where progress now stands with inventions such as jetpacks, artificial gills, underwater cities, moon colonies, turning invisible, x-ray goggles,etc., but he also presents it with laugh out loud humor. He articulates some interesting concepts, which I would assume to be true, and gives ample terse tidbits of information with his "fun facts to know and tell". This was enjoyable.
