Never In A Million Years: A History of Hopeless Predictions
by Ivor Baddiel (Author), Jonny Zucker (Author)
Pages 255

Why do people make predictions? What was the first prediction? And why do we give them any credence whatsoever?

The first end-of-the-world prediction was recorded one second after the Big Bang, and since then it has become the daddy of all predictions with, to date, no one getting it right. Human beings have been around for about 200,000 years, with very little evolutionary difference, and yet we still haven't developed X-ray eyes or the ability to fly. This book examines the predictions that have been made since the dawn of time on a variety of subjects, from the end of the world and the human body to global warming, robots in the workplace, teleportation, and space exploration. With a witty and fresh tone, the authors examine how these predictions came about and why, and rate them for retrospective accuracy.
