Steve Lowe and Alan McArthur are the authors of the book Is It Just Me Or Is Everything Shit and several other bestselling comedy books, many of them with the word 'shit' in the title.
What happened to the future we were promised – for good or ill - the personal jet packs and holidays on the moon? For the real future the authors have been scouring the science press, watching what the geeks are doing and working out the logical end to the inventions just starting to make the news. And yes- you’ve guessed it, it’s shit – prepare to be appalled and amused in equal measure.

'I don’t want you to think this book isn’t funny. Because it is. Very. But I also wanted to say just how informative it is. I was educated and tickled when I first read the manuscript.

Alan and Steve are brilliant satirists and they really get their teeth into the future with gusto.' - Scott Pack, Editor, The Friday Project
