I recommend all books by this author, but I prefer the works of Wang Xiaoping, published by 1stWorld much better.
I also love the fact that the publisher, 1stWorld Library (or 1stWolrd Publishing) has made the text slightly larger which is a blessing for my thirty-something eyes. Great job. I have dozens of books by this publisher…

The Culture Consumers: a Study of Art and Affluence in America by Alvin Toffler

This book shows us the potentials our lives can have if we join the “fast” civilization rather than remaining mired in the “slow” First and Second Wave civilizations. The Third Wave brings power shifts, including a shift in the nature of power itself, and it invites us to use more high-quality power—knowledge—and less lower-quality power, like force and wealth, in order to live better ourselves and help others do the same.

Future Shock is a book written by the sociologist and futurologist Alvin Toffler in 1970. The book is actually an extension of an article of the same name that Toffler wrote for the February 1970 issue of Nature. The book has sold over 6 million copies and has been widely translated.

Future shock is also a term for a certain psychological state of individuals and entire societies, introduced by Toffler in his book of the same name. Toffler's shortest definition of future shock is a personal perception of "too much change in too short a period of time". The concept of future shock bears resemblance to the late 20th/early 21st century concept of "the technological singularity", and may have been influenced by Kuhn's concept of a paradigm shift.

A documentary film based on the book was released in 1972 with Orson Welles as on-screen narrator.

Alvin Toffler se hizo conocido a partir de la publicación en 1970 de su ensayo El "shock" del futuro que se convertiría en un auténtico bestseller.
Este libro trata de lo que le pasa a la gente que se siente abrumada por el cambio.
Trata del modo en que nos adaptamos —o dejamos de adaptarnos— al futuro.
Mucho se ha escrito sobre el futuro. Sin embargo, la mayoría de los libros sobre el mundo venidero tienen un áspero sonido metálico. Estas páginas, por el contrario, se ocupan de la cara «suave» o humana del mañana. Más aún: se ocupan de los pasos que hemos de dar para poder alcanzar el mañana. Tratan de materias corrientes y cotidianas: los productos que compramos y los que rechazamos, los sitios que dejamos atrás, las corporaciones en que vivimos, las personas que pasan, cada vez más de prisa, por nuestras vidas. Sondean el futuro de la amistad y de la vida de familia. Investigan extrañas y nuevas subculturas y estilos de vida, junto con una serie de temas diversos, desde la política y los campos de deportes hasta los vuelos espaciales y el sexo…

Alvin est déjà de retour ! Hautière et Dillies clôturent ce diptyque au son du banjo ! Après avoir traversé les États-Unis dans la bonne humeur (« J'ai mal aux pieds. - Marche sur les mains. »), Gaston, Alvin et « le Bizarre » atteignent le Bayou. Objectif : trouver la famille du petit orphelin dans cette bonne ville du sud pétrie de préjugés. Heureusement, la philosophie et la poésie trouvent toujours à se loger dans les petits riens de l'existence et ce d'autant plus sous le trait virtuose de Renaud Dillies !

Régis Hautière et Renaud Dillies signent la suite d'Abélard avec le nouveau diptyque Alvin. Son ami disparu, l'ours mal léché Gaston traîne son désespoir à New York. Mais rien à faire ! Son karma doit être d'aider les petits êtres aux mille questions ! Alvin, un jeune orphelin revêche, profitera de sa belle âme. Les voilà sur les routes, accompagnés, pour ne rien arranger, d'un prédicateur fou ! Poésie, dialogues truculents et virtuosité graphique se mêlent pour une très belle ode à la différence et à l'entraide.
