Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Step aside, Bill Gates! Here comes today′s real technology guru and his totally original, laugh-out-loud New York Times bestseller that looks at the approaching new millennium and boldly predicts: more stupidity ahead.

In The Dilbert Principle and Dogbert′s Top Secret Management Handbook, Scott Adams skewered the absurdities of the corporate world. Now he takes the next logical step, turning his keen analytical focus on how human greed, stupidity and horniness will shape the future. Featuring the same irresistible amalgam of essays and cartoons that made Adams previous works so singularly entertaining, this uproariously funny, dead-on-target tome offers half-truthful, half-farcical predictions that push all of today′s hot buttons - from business and technology to society and government.

Children - they are our future, so we′re pretty much hosed. Tip: Grab what you can while they′re still too little to stop us.

Human Potential - we′ll finally learn to use the 90 percent of the brain we don′t use today, and find out that there wasn′t anything in that part.

Computers - Technology and homeliness will combine to form a powerful type of birth control.

Synopsis:

Warning: more stupidity ahead (also selfishness and horniness)

Nostradamus, step aside. Scott Adams has turned futurist and gives us a much needed look into his skewed crystal ball.

Here's a taste of what you'll learn in The Dibert Future:

  • in the future, life definitely won't be like Star Trek (or else we'd never leave the holodeck)

  • there will be a huge market for technology products that help workers goof off and still get paid

  • Internet capacity will increase indefinitely to keep up with the egos of the people using it

  • it will be increasingly easy to find customers gullible enough to buy any product, no matter how worthless and stupid it is

  • your competitors will remain just as clueless as your are

There's only one word to describe life in The Dibert Future: HILARIOUS.
