About the book:

Straight from Conan O'Brien and the "Late Night" staff, a collection of startling and thought-provoking predictions for... oh, a couple of months from now.

What will happen in the year 2000? Well, according to Conan O'Brien and the other comic geniuses from NBC's "Late Night," robots will do 80% of our houseworkand we will do 90% of theirs. All medical procedures will take 30 minutes or less, as doctors switch to the Domino's Pizza Health Plan. And scientists will discover the secret ingredient in Starbucks coffee: a chemical that makes people forget they are paying $4 for a cup of coffee.

Straight from "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" comes a saucy serving of outrageous--yet spookily plausible--predictions, and the last word on how the world may look on the other side of the millennial divide.

Conan O'Brien became the host of "Late Night" in 1993. In the year 2000 he will have to come up with a new sketch.
