Reviews

A masterpiece of science fiction that teaches youngsters and parents alike essential lessons about designing the best future for humanity. A must buy and essential reading for the young and older among us.

- Philip Zimbardo, Professor Emeritus in Psychology, Stanford University
It's always fun for kids to think about the future, but it's not easy to keep the conversation going because everything becomes complicated. This book changes the rules--figuring out the future of transportation, food, energy, the environment and more--it all becomes an elaborate game. And not just a game, but a serious exercise in scenario planning, decision sciences and collaboration disguised as a game. What a great way to encourage kids to use their imagination to invent the future--I only wish there was a similar book for adults (who probably need it even more than kids do). - Howard Blumenthal, Senior Scholar, The University of Pennsylvania, Creator/Producer of "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?"
