What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I read Flash Forward and this is a more personal perspective of that book. So although many of the ideas were dated because it is a 1990's course I think, it still had transferability and relevance to be utilized today. I would have given it a 4+ star had it used topical predictions for the 2015 and beyond.
