Wells considered this book one of his most important, a natural follow-up to such works as his Man of the Year Million and The Time Machine. His goal was to get people to think and act in new ways. The book starts with a look at how humans get along socially and how they carry out their business ventures. It then discusses how these elements influence others, such as politics, the world of work, and education. H. G. tried to make clear how the current social order was disintegrating without preparing another to take its place. He then traced the roots of democracy, which in its present state he saw as unworkable. Instead, he proposed a new republic. He also critiqued modern warfare. (Summary by Bill Boerst) (8 hr 31 min)

HG Wells was ahead of his time many of his predictions have unfortunately come true as the Advent of world wars 1 and 2 have shown how cruel mankind can be to each other with as weapons of war and utter disregard for humanity particularly the Nazi Holocaust on any and all who oppose them. however and forwarded the belief that the mentally insane, physically handicapped, Jews and Asians along with many others we're deserving of death, quite shocking

He keeps talking about mechanicals. And I was under the impression it was the mechanisms of the human thought and life. I'll re-review it when I get more intellectually in depth?
