Review: "Inspired by Shakespeare's famous "Seven Ages of Man" soliloquy, Tomorrow Now is Bruce Sterling's dazzling vision of our future, with each chapter devoted to one of the seven stages of humanity: birth, school, love, war, politics, business, and old age. In his first nonfiction book since his classic The Hacker Crackdown, Sterling describes the world our children might be living in over the next fifty years and what to expect next in culture, geopolitics, and business. Tomorrow Now is an amusing and thought-provoking romp through the future."--BOOK JACKET.
