The Joy of Tech comic has burst on to the publishing scene with a spectacular spectacular!

We are so proud to announce our first major book, published by O'Reilly, and what an incredible collection indeed!

It's printed in full colour, bursting to the brim with the very best Joy of Tech comics. And more! It also features an introduction by the fabulous David Pogue, and hold on to your mouse... a foreword by Apple Computer founder and tech legend Steve Wozniak!

We're getting some insanely great reviews...

Just in... an amazing review from Dr. Neale Monks of Applelust:
  • "In short, this book is the finest slice of geek humour out there, so go out and buy a copy now. You won't be disappointed"

Linux Format Magazine give us a 10 out of 10 and their coveted Top Stuff Award! Read the review! (pdf)

Rick Yaeger of MacMerc gives us a 5 out of 5 and writes:

"This is far more than just printed copies of a few comics off the JoT site, folks; they've downloaded the spirit of Joy of Tech into a perfect-bound creation."

George Woolley from Oakland Perl Mongers gives us 5 out of 5 and says these immortal words..

"This book is a compilation of geek humor comic strips with beautiful drawing, to kill for babes, and a sense of poetry. If you have a soul, get this book. If you don't have a soul, borrow one (a soul, that is), so you can grok this book."

Rikki Endsley from UnixReview.com ...

"This book will absolutely not help you do your job better. However, The Best of The Joy of Tech has been one of the best things I've had on my desk all year.... you may not "need" this book, but I think you really need this book. And get a spare copy, because yours may run off with a co-worker."

Marc Robinson from Main Line Macintosh User Group!

"What I like most about The Joy of Tech is the uncanny ability that Nitrozac and Snaggy have to take a simple joke and elaborate on it until it becomes an inside joke for geeks like me, but still remains accessible to the average guy. ... If you're a geek and can take a joke and laugh at yourself (or you're one of those "normal" people who just likes to laugh at us geeks) and the crazy world we live in, you should pick up a copy of this book. Even away from your Mac or the Internet you shouldn't be without your Joy of Tech."

Charles Moore from Applelinks!

"This book is a must-have it if you like Macs, computers in general, geek culture, comics, bodacious beauties, and just plain fun, not necessarily in any particular order."
