Gr 9 Up—Techies will appreciate the comprehensive nature of these text-heavy resources. Beginning with a detailed visual time line charting the evolution of the technology, each volume begins with a brief overview of the subject's history, then goes into great detail exploring its myriad contemporary uses and its possible future applications. Benefits and risks are addressed in a matter-of-fact tone, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. The writing effectively balances clarity and detail, avoiding needless complexity and ambiguity when communicating key concepts. Interestingly, the series opts not to highlight key words in bold print but rather places a "Words in Context" sidebar on that page to define the important term. Confident readers won't mind the scarcity of photos and other images but will relish the thorough list of source notes.
With the directness of textbooks, the books in this series explore exciting, interrelated areas of technological innovation with in-depth, straightforward text; clear organization; and well-documented sources. Sidebars contain supplementary information and "Words in Context," a user-friendly alternative to a glossary. Introductory timelines are difficult to navigate, and minimal visual elements and unremarkable covers do little to draw in readers. Reading list, websites. Ind. Review covers the following Future of Technology titles: What Is the Future of Artificial Intelligence?, What Is the Future of Nanotechnology?, What Is the Future of Drones?, What Is the Future of 3D Printing?, What Is the Future of Virtual Reality?, and What Is the Future of Self-Driving Cars?
