About the book:

Take a look into Scott Adams' crystal ball and catch a glimpse of the future of technology, democracy, ageing, capitalism, marketing, jobs, relationships, and (of course) work, illustrated with the doings of Dilbert and the gang.

So what does the Dilbert future hold in store? An acronym shortage, for one thing. Since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, all the good ones will eventually be used up--a major problem for acronym-hungry businesses. In the future, your clothes will be smarter than you. Food stains will slide off their non- stick surfaces and you'll clean your clothes by taking them outside and shaking them off. All barriers of entry will go away and confusopolies will form: groups of companies that make similar products and that intentionally confuse customers instead of competing on price. In the future, men who use computers will be (gasp) sex symbols. Finally, rest assured that the future will bear no resemblance to Star Trek, because Star Trek didn't take the stupidity and selfishness of humans into account.
