The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'The Dilbert Future: Thriving on Business Stupidity in the 21st Century':

Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
This is not another book with collected Dilbert strips, but a humourous view of Scott Adams on the future. He plays with the standard views of the future (like Star Trek) and goes on with his view on management. Subjects like health, technology, democracy, capitalism, the gender balance, working (including managers and job searching), marketing and social security are discussed. And in a quite well-thought way and at the same time being quite funny. He predicts airline seats will still be to small and stupid managers will stay. All in all a reasonably funny book, but not as accessible and easy to read as some of the other Dilbert books. Whether this is good or bad for you is up to you :)

Book description:

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.
