Book published by the People's Almanac
(the Book Of Lists people
) in 1981.
Contained predictions made by various scientists, psychics and celebrities about what life would be like over the next 50 years.
Predictors included Arthur C. Clarke
, Timothy Leary
, Isaac Asimov
, Charlie Gillett
, Jim Fixx
, Shere Hite
, Benjamin Spock
, Andrei Sakharov
and Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder"
. I find it interesting to reread it every few years just to see how wrong and of their time the predictions were (although it is even harder to predict ahead today of course).
Also contained a section of predictions made over the past few hundred years by people and places such as Nostradamus
, Mother Shipton
and the Great Pyramid of Cheops
