Today, in January Magazine’s art & culture section, contributing editor Andi Shechter reviews Where’s My Jetpack? by Daniel H. Wilson, the book that answers all of our questions about the extremely disappointing 21st century. Says Shechter:

He explains that some of these out-of-this-world ideas absolutely do exist.
