CRITIC AND READER REACTIONS
"In Future Shock, the Tofflers warned that many people 'will find it increasingly painful to keep up with the incessant demand for change that characterizes our time. For them, the future will have arrived too soon.' These days, from Baghdad to Bangalore to Boston, it seems more likely that people worry that the future will arrive too late. That's no small change, and it's one on which the Tofflers have been shining a light for years."
-- New York Times Book Review
"Revolutionary Wealth is a continuation of the work of futurist couple Alvin and Heidi Toffler ... They show no signs of losing touch with the bleeding edge or slowing down. Their book is loaded with bits of intelligence....
-- USA Today
"Revolutionary Wealth ... takes a hard look at the changing economies of the world and where we're heading in the increasingly global marketplace. I've always believed in planning ahead and have made some wise investments as a result. They [the Tofflers] share my forward thinking."
-- Donald Trump
"Both shocking and stimulating ... Their books are irresistible."
-- Investor's Business Daily
"Like other books by the Tofflers, [Revolutionary Wealth] seeks to shake, rattle and roll us out of wrong-headedness and into preparedness. Even if you can't agree with the authors' every prediction ...you must admit they've mastered the art of integrating - in clear, engaging prose - a torrent of up-to-date global information [and] historical arguments to support their points of view and research from the frontiers of science. So dinosaurs give up!"

-- People's Daily
"Much like their earlier path-breaking seminal work with Future Shock, The Third Wave and Powershift, the Toffler's new book, Revolutionary Wealth too is about looking at established thought and wisdom through a new prism ... the book is a holy grail of everything from management thinking, sociology, history, science, trade & commerce, consumer behaviour, developmental economics, political thought and poetry, besides much else ... highly insightful ... simply a treat."

"Profoundly important and thought-provoking concepts ... a wake-up call."

"Revolutionary Wealth serves well in explaining why most societies face difficulties ... The Tofflers take up what many consider the most important geopolitical question today: Can America stay on top? ... The book's most important contribution is its explanation of how Second Wave elites are delaying the arrival of Third Wave prosperity."
-- Gordon Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China, in the South China Morning Post
"The world the Tofflers describe (in Revolutionary Wealth) is exciting, challenging and rich in opportunity. The tale they tell mirrors the pace of change: The book is structured around compelling headlines and organized into bite-size, easily readable chunks. Many of us authors wish we were half as accessible and engaging."
-- Across the Board magazine
"Revolutionary Wealth paints a picture of a world in overdrive, with vast potentials for creating a higher standard of living across the globe ... Makes you entertain possibilities you never thought of before."
