The Shape of Shit to Come

 
9780007586400: The Shape of Shit to Come

We’ve seen the future. And it’s shit.

From the authors of the mega-selling Is It Just Me or Is Everything Shit?

Once, we were promised a sci-fi future that never arrived. But what if it really is on its way now?

The Shape of Shit to Come takes a funny tour of the future taking shape before our eyes – a future of sex robots, hotels in space, kids making their own pets with gene-splicing kits and people planning, for real, how they can turn themselves into hyper-intelligent genetically enriched cyborg immortals of the future.

Because these things are happening. As of yet only the geeks are talking about this stuff. But is that wise? Shouldn’t we all be getting with the programme? Otherwise we’re leaving the future of humanity in the hands of people who ride scooters indoors.

Review:

‘A stupendously wide-ranging compendium of what is happening in the world of tech . . . an encyclopedia for the can’t-be-arsed.’ NEW SCIENTIST

Praise for Is it Just Me or is Everything Shit?

‘Bilious old-codgering taken to the highest possible level as authors vent anger over the crassness and mediocrity of modern life cf. "juice drinks", Otis Ferry, Kabbalah, foot spas, Sam Taylor-Wood and pubs playing "mellow dance grooves".’ TIME OUT

‘A life-affirming guide to the modern world.’ ESQUIRE
