Alvin Toffler

Biography:

Alvin Toffler and his wife Heidi are known around the world for their work that has influenced top leaders around the globe. Known for having forecast the acceleration of daily life, the decline of the nuclear family, the spread of loneliness and rise of religion, the Tofflers decades ago also anticipated cloning, virtual reality, niche markets, information overload, work-at-home, product customization, the "de-massification" of the mass media, the threat of terrorism and many other features of contemporary life. But in the Tofflers' works, these disparate forecasts are all mere details of a far larger canvas.
