About this product
- DescriptionThe future holds many unkwns: advances in medical techlogy, increased airport security and critical new inventions like sentient, polygraph-enabled, wireless toasters. Luckily, Maclean's columnist Scott Feschuk has written a survival guide -- part how-to manual, part product guide, part apocalypse analysis and part sardonic observation -- to help us navigate these troubled times. Or at least make us laugh while we try. The Future and Why We Should Avoid It envisions the daunting, depressing era we have to look forward to with the best of Feschuk's musings on aging, death, techlogy, inventions, health and leisure. Combining quizzes, voiceovers and speeches, and employing snark, innuendo, toilet humor and shameless mockery -- because how else do you cope with the fact that one day you will die? -- Feschuk contemplates the fate of humanity and the planet in the upcoming years, poking fun, provoking thought and dredging up silver linings in even the darkest forecasts.
- Author BiographyScott Feschuk is the author of two previous books, Searching For Michael Jackson's Nose (McClelland Stewart, 2003) and How Not to Completely Suck as a New Parent (McClelland Stewart, 2004, with Paul Mather). He is the two-time winner of the Gold Award for Humour at the National Magazine Awards and has written for Maclean's, Sportsnet, the Globe and Mail, National Post and This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Feschuk was also chief speechwriter for former Prime Minister Paul Martin.
