    Book details


One of the pivotal minds of the 20th century was none other than Sir Arthur C. Clarke. No other forecaster of the future even comes close. This newly released book from the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation, entitled The Oracle of Colombo and written by Dr. Joseph N. Pelton and skillfully edited by Peter Marshall, provides a thoughtful, delightful and often wry romp through Clarke’:s extraordinary range of predictions. The list of accurate and compelling forecasts is truly mind-boggling. Here we find amazing predictions about communications, navigation and weather satellites, new types of “:green”: energy systems, new concepts in transportation, artificial intelligence, “:smart”: robots, “:driverless”: cars, e-commerce, the Internet, DNA testing, Project Safeguard to protect our planet ... and the beat goes on and on. For the serious futurologist, Pelton has provided a readable, well documented and compelling guide to Clarke’:s many predictions, inventions, and even conceptions yet to be realized. These tables are neatly stowed in the appendices at the back, but those who would like to explore Arthur’:s many “:profiles of the future”: should just sit back and read Oracle from cover to cover. This is truly a well-crafted presentation of over a hundred of his many wonderful forecasts and “:Clarkian inspirations”:. Chapters not to be missed include: “:When Clarke Got It Wrong”: and “:Why Arthur Clarke is Still Relevant.”: Get your copy today. Proceeds go the admirable work of the Clarke Foundation’:s many educational programs.
