Futurists will be welcoming this book by the prolific dean of the science fiction community whose 1963 classic Future Profiles defined possible futures, some of which have already come true. Clarke rejects any label as a prophet; as per the subtitle of Profiles, he deals with "the limits of the poss... ible." In July 20, 2019, he considers a day in 21st century life. The oversized, illustrated book forecasts how people are born, they live and they die. We ride space stations in orbit, watch 60-year-old, 8-foot athletes, see people being replaced with computers and robots, see most aspects of life—schools, transportation, medicine, work, movies. These are amazing but realistic perceptions by a craft master, who writes with skill, wit, clarity and remarkable intelligence as always.
