When we know the future... how does that affect our present?
The popular TV Series, Flashforward was based on this book.
A scientific experiment begins, and as the button is pressed, the unexpected occurs: everyone in the world goes to sleep for a few moments and their consciousness are catapulted more than 20 years into the future.
At the end of those moments, when the world reawakens, all human life is transformed by the event and foreknowledge.
Was that shocking revelation a peek at the real, unalterable future, or was it only one of many possible futures?
What happens when a man tries to change it, like the doctor who has 20 years to try to prevent his own murder?
Publishers Weekly: “This first-rate, philosophical journey, a terrific example of idea-driven Science Fiction."

Library Journal: “Sawyer brings a fresh and startling approach to the familiar theme of time travel in a tale that explores the repercussions of knowing the future.”
