Pohl's life ought to be an autobiographer's dream. Still, though better chunks of Pohl biography may be found in the Aldiss-Harrison Hell's Cartographers and The Early Pohl, fans will want The Way the Future Was in full. Like many sci-fi writers, he became hooked on the stuff during a Depression childhood. By the age of 17, he was not only a member of the remarkable sci-fi Cosa Nostra known as the Futurian Society, but also a self-constituted literary agent, promoting his friends' and his own stories to John W.

Pohl is an engaging writer. The book is fast-paced and often funny. The events he’s writing about are fascinating. He went broke being an agent in the SF boom of the fifties. He collaborated with Cyril Kornbluth, Jack Williamson and Arthur C. Clarke.
