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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scott Adams Rules! I could write the same review for Adams' entire series of business books. Adams, through Dilbert and his cohorts, firmly has his finger on the pulse of the forgotten souls in North America's cubicle mazes. Hilarious books that could double as survival manuals for the workforce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes professor... This is the most fun I've ever had reading what looks to be scott adams term paper, perhaps his dissertation, if there were such a thing as Bachelor of Cartoon Art Media. It's a big hilarious essay on the predictions of Dogbert, for you intellectuals who've read the comic (with that specific storyline, i.e. the holodeck strip), but want something a little more cerebral. I give him an A+.
