The Tomorrow File - Lawrence Sanders This book speculates about a number of technologies, conventions and social concepts that, by this date, actually didn't end up too far off the mark. Sanders envisioned ATM's when that idea was still long in the future.
While some of his concepts, by now, may seem a little dated and even quaint, the vision he presented of the future is, at times, uncomfortably revealing of the present.
An important book, these days, if viewed as a cautionary tale.
Interesting, none of the Lawrence Sanders books I've read since (although I liked them) came even close to this in theme or style.
