really liked it

Remember the 80s, when we wondered what the 2000s would be like? Remember figuring that we'd all be wearing collarless, reflective space suits and riding hovercraft to our offices in the sky? This book answers your questions about the "science fiction future that never arrived" and more interestingly, the ones that did. (Teleportation and x-ray vision have actually been done, although maybe not how we hoped they would). This book is funny, easy to read, and informative. The author writes with fun style and a quirky voice that would appeal for sure to any one with an inquiring mind. Bonus: teenage boys would probably drool on it.
