Amazon Editorial Review

In The Dilbert Principle and current bestseller Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook, Scott Adams skewers the absurdities of today's corporate world. Now he takes the next step, turning his keen analytical focus on how human greed, stupidity and horniness will shape the future.

With this book, Adams follows in the footsteps of other great futurists, i.e., sitting at home making stuff up that can't be proven wrong for many years. Featuring the same mix of essays and cartoons that made The Dilbert Principle so uniquely entertaining, The Dilbert Future offers predictions on business, technology, society and government. Nobody is spared this time. Some predictions:

  • 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.

  • Longevity: We'll all live to 140. The Olympics will expand to include new events such as Complaining and Slow Driving.

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