Review

"Just about anybody who uses a Mac will enjoy this book." - David Fanning, Macworld, February 2004 "This is geek culture at its finest - some of which will even be accessible for non-geeks - and we can't get enough of it! Three cheers for Nitrozac and Snaggy!" - Paul Hudson, Linux Format, April [Linux Format Top Stuff Award]

Synopsis

Frustrated and frazzled by technology? Or perhaps your cynicism is starting to wane? The Joy of Tech is just the boost you need to get a fresh and funny look at the geek world and restore your sense of humor along the way. With a style that's simultaneously retro and modern, smart and sexy, The Joy of Tech comics poke fun at the latest cultural and technological trends, including those mired deep within the recesses of the IT world. From geeks to corporate giants to the funny world of Macintosh(R) culture, nothing is sacred, and The Best of The Joy of Tech will have you laughing at it all. This book is a collection of the very best from The Joy of Tech online series, the hilarious technology-centric comics created by the dual processing powers of Nitrozac and Snaggy. Long a favorite of those in the know--from the techies in the trenches to those who lead and shape the IT industry--these comics are appearing for the first time in the time-proven and stable "book" interface.

The Best of the Joy of Tech features several new, never-before-seen comics, exclusive notes from the artists about their work, an appendix of the JoyPolls, a lexicon of JoyWords, and an introduction by David Pogue, bestselling author and creator of O'Reilly's Missing Manual Series. Printed in glorious full color, it'll be the one thing on a techie's desktop guaranteed not to crash, freeze, or go "poof!" The Best of the Joy of Tech will be a welcome addition to any techie's library of geeky books. Amid the often mind-numbing brain fodder of coding how-tos, user manuals, and hardware reviews, The Best of The Joy of Tech is an oasis of top-notch humor and images sure to refresh the mind's page and reboot the will to live. The Joy of Tech celebrates our love of technology, as well as the frustrations we have with it. It empowers everyone--from cubical workers to those who work at home, from teenagers and students to full-time IT geeks, to get the last laugh on technology. Includes a foreword by the legendary Steve Wozniak, creater of Apple Computer.
