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.

Mr. Adams has no great faith in human nature. He’s certain that three things about human nature will remain constant: selfishness, stupidity, horniness. Because of that, the future envisioned by Star Trek devotees just ain’t gonna happen.

Hilarious, acerbic, acidic, Mr. Adams doesn’t give you ways of dealing with your fellow men as removing you from their gun sights while keeping a sharp eye on their rotten behavioral tactics. His keen insight for human foibles remains unabated and this book is just a reminder of how humor doesn’t leaven misery so much as rides atop it like a cowboy on a bucking bronco.
