The Future and Why We Should Avoid It

November 2014

“…Feschuk, the popular Maclean's magazine columnist, has to be our country’s most-persistently entertaining and relevant humorist…. If this was the future, I would pick Feschuk to be our standard bearer and tribute in The Humour Games… an uncommon ability to string absurdities and funny sentences together back-to-back in a way that makes you laugh and laugh and laugh.”

October 2014

“When he straddles the line between completely ludicrous and actually real, The Future and Why We Should Avoid It is gut-bustingly hilarious… It’s Feschuk’s sense of outrage and bafflement at the folly of humanity that make this book such an enjoyable read… The Future and Why We Should Avoid It is a hilarious read that makes for great light reading or a solid Christmas gift for your curmudgeonly uncle…”

The Future and Why We Should Avoid It

October 2014

“Feschuk is the country’s funniest wise guy …his new book The Future And Why We Should Avoid It is every bit as delightful as his magazine columns…Feschuk takes a sardonic yet sobering look at what’s over the horizon for our tech-obsessed culture. But sober is the last thing you’ll want to be in Feschuk’s future world, in which microwaves sneer at you and dancing robots play the trumpet when not doing “a piss-poor job of vacuuming.”…Feschuk has an easy, conversational style underpinned by deadpan wit... My personal plan for the future is to read everything Feschuk writes — a strategy I think of as Guffawing Through the Apocalypse. You probably could use more laughter in your life. This book is a great place to find it.”

“Feschuk, a columnist for Maclean’s, infuses humour and mockery into his idea of what the fate of humanity holds. Buckle down and get ready for satirical look at our modern day world.”
