This is an exploration of the 21st Century.

On the surface nothing seems to be changing, but behind the façade of normality the future is taking shape.

First Margolis takes a look at the history of futurology and then he attempts to predict the world that's yet to come.

Jonathan Margolis inoculates himself against the pitfalls of prophecy with a chastening look at the history of futurology.

Then he takes courage in both hands and sets out to describe the world that's yet to come in the fields of medicine, mind, spirit, home, food, work, leisure, politics, war, society, transport, environment and space.

External Reviews

'A Brief History of Tomorrow is a classic instance of book-length journalism: well-researched, occasionally thoughtful and incessantly entertaining' - Spectator Magazine.

"Readers will be so effectively drawn in that they will be able to see the subtle ways that the future is already upon us (smart-lawn mowers, mobile phones) and ways in which we have fallen behind our own imaginations (space travel, farming the sea). This is a clever look at how the world could have been, how it might be and how it won’t be.” - Publishers Weekly.
