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.

Nun denn, wenn es heißt "Das beste aus...", fragt man sich, wo man denn die einzelnen Teile der Sammlung schon gelesen und gesehen hat. Bei The Best of Joy of Tech dürfte die Gefahr nicht so groß sein, denn The Joy of Tech ist ein amerikanisches Phänomen aus Zeitungen und von Websites. Wer das eine oder andere Stück aus der englischsprachigen Sammlung schon gesehen hat, wird sich freuen, ein komplettes Buch zu erhalten. Wer noch nichts davon kennt, wird überrascht sein: Auch Computer-Freaks haben Humor.

Nitrozac and Snaggy hacken sich durch sämtliche Bereiche des Nerd-Alltags: Kaffee-Konsum, Frauen (vor allem ihre Abwesenheit), Beziehungen, Tiere (bevorzugt Katzen) und die kleinen und großen Herausforderungen des computerisierten Alltags. Die Zielgruppe des Comics ist zwar definitiv im Hardcore-Computerbereich zu finden, wer aber nur ein wenig mit eben dieser Sorte Mensch zu tun hat oder seinen Computer zu mehr nutzt als nur Briefe zu drucken, wird mit einem Grinsen bis zum lauten Lachen bedient.

Das sieht dann etwa so aus: How to loose a Geek in 10 Seconds: Surprise him by re-organising all those icons on his computer's desktop for him! Throw out his current mousepad and replace it with one that has a picture of cute little cittens! Ask him to flex his mighty geek muscles for you by helping you sign up for an AOL account! Help him break his caffeine and junk food habit by hiding his coffee, cola and chips! Proof him, that you are ready to really commit by asking him his root password!

Den Computer im Menschen mit The Best of Joy of Tech verstehen und sich dabei wegschmeißen vor Lachen! --Wolfgang Treß


"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]

5.0 von 5 Sternen Coolest comic book ever!!!! 10. Februar 2004
Von "tut-an-geek" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Nitrozac and Snaggy, of the ultra cool GeekCulture.com have really hit the nail on the head with their book. The long wait for the book was well worth it. Each page looks absolutely beautifull, and the printing is spectacular. The introductions by David Pogue and The Woz are great too! And the lexicon at the end is very nice, for us "insiders" who post on the boards there :).
The comics are the best of the ones I can remember (all of them) and each page gave me many a chuckles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen MyMac.com Book Review 20. Mai 2004
Von Tim E Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I must be crazy; I was flamed so badly after my last review of a cartoon book (published on a much less friendly site) that I had to replace my asbestos review suit. 'The Best of Joy of Tech' may be worth the risk.
Of course it's easy to enjoy a cartoon book by a pair of cartoonists that share your prejudices. It is obvious from the cartoons that Nitrozac and Snaggy are Macintosh loving, Linux leaning, Microsoft loathing geeks. Hmmm, sounds like me.
Not that Nitrozac and Snaggy are totally one-eyed. They still have a dig at Apple and Macintosh owners along the way. Unlike quite a lot of cartoons about tech these two also see the more human side, just as likely to make a joke about your cat's relationship to you and the computer as poke fun at LARTing end-users or pointy-headed bosses. Their cartoons are more about living with technology than working with it.
The book reproduces a couple of hundred of 'The Joy of Tech' cartoons from their website, in improved color and resolution. The website features a new cartoon every couple of days. There are also a small number that are original for the book and some funny marginalia in a couple of spots. It also has the matching JoyPoll and a short comment about the cartoon in a 'JoyWorld' section at the back of the book.
I find a fairly large number of the cartoons repeatedly funny and most of the rest worth a chuckle. These two have a good eye for the whimsical, ironic and downright funny side to a wired in, geek life. They even manage to get in a sly reference to geek site Slashdot with a fake O'Reilly book, "Trolling In a Nutshell" with a troll wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with "FIRST POST" on the cover and an Introduction by 'Anonymous Coward'.
Oh, that reminds me. The book has a very Wozniak foreword by Steve himself and an introduction by David Pogue that is nowhere near as good as the book (I'm sorry David, but any self-respecting geek [male or female] would rather do almost anything than edit the Windows registry, starting with install a decent operating system and working all the way through to changing jobs, heck, I'd rather sleep with Jobs.)
The book is broken up into various sections, each with a theme. It starts with "Boot-Up" and continues with "4nim4l cr4ck3rs" (most about cats), the whimsical "Geek Love", "Hacks and Cracks" (I loved the couple who want to get housing within 50 meters of a war-chalked wall), "Techie-daze", "How about them *nix" (featuring the luscious 'Linux Lass'), "The Joy of Mac", "Who do you want to poke fun at today?" (You'll enjoy the 'Stress Relief Dartboard'), "Sci-Fi The Comic Frontier" and "Do You think I'm Xexy" before finishing with "The World According to Geek" (with 'The Lord of The Root - One Geek To Rule Them All', the two good looking woman who don't shy away from maths and the Barbie 'DotCom Rescue' CD-ROM game)
If you go to Joy Of Tech you can grab a copy from the authors that has been signed (you even get a chance to ask for a custom inscription) and for an extra fee Nitrozac will even bless your book and attach a lucky sticker. You could go to the O'Reilly page, but since they don't have example cartoons and I don't imagine a cartoon book will ever have errata there isn't much point.
It's not easy to review a cartoon book. Suffice to say that I found the 'toons in this book to be a good variety from amusing through to funny with some that are just a little too true to make me do more than groan. If you've never come across this pair then check out the site and if you like the last few examples then the book will not disappoint(...)

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's awesome! 29. April 2004
Von Eric Bowersox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
The dead-tree debut of the popular online comic "The Joy of Tech," by Canadian artists Nitrozac and Snaggy, is a terrific introduction to the comic for the uninitiated and a must-have for Superfans and just plain ordinary fans. Featuring a foreword by Steve "The Woz" Wozniak and an introduction by David "Missing Manual" Pogue, this collection of cartoons features geeks, aliens, cats, Macintosh, Apple, Steve Jobs, Tux the Linux Penguin, Klingons, cartoon babes that'll leave geeks everywhere saying, "I'd hit it!", and much more! I also appreciated the reproduction of the original JoyPolls at the back of the book, together with the "liner notes" for the featured comics. An all-around winner!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Geek Humour at it's best 29. April 2004
Von Jes Barwick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Snaggy and Nitrozac show their teeth in this wonderful display of Geek Comedy. Whether you're a geek, or not, you can't help but laugh at the comic misfortunes of Windows users, Linux users and Mac users alike as they try to live in a world full of people who have normal sleep patterns, and have no idea what it's like to have a 3:00 AM call from your boss screaming at you begging to know why the third line of the second paragraph on page 5 of the online catalog isn't bold, or why the server is returning an error. Prepare to stretch your laughing muscles when you buy this book. A must have for all geeks. Makes a great gift, and will never let you down when you need a pick me up. Buy two, because surely you'll want to give on to someone you love.
