There is a reason that many workplaces ban Dilbert cartoons- they are just too darn close to the truth. I've lost track of the number of times that I've laughed myself silly after finding one of his cartoon arcs describing some experience in my own working career.

In his biography, Scott Adams is described as both an engineer and as a member of Mensa. Inspite of this, however, he has a sense of humor....

I'm sure that this confirmation of the absurdity of corporate "culture" has helped more than a few intelligent wage-slaves maintain their sanity over the years. It almost maintained mine.

"Dilbert, the customer liked the mock-up so much that he ordered a thousand!" "That was a MOCK-UP! We don't make that product yet! It would take us three years to make one." "Just give us a thousand mock-ups. The first one was terrific." "The mock-up was our competitor's product with duct tape over the logo" Just one of the various and funny strips you will find in this and other Dilbert books, Dilbert is a masterful parody of not just the bastions of the work place, but the social life that comes with being whatever type of worker you are. The fact that his company and pointy-haired manager are unnamed, and the fact that the product his company makes is never mentioned, and that his company never goes out of business, all add to the relateablility and the surrealistic humor. You've got sadistic talking animals(an evil cat that is director of human resources, a dog that thinks its smarter than everyone else and wants to rule humanity, and a totally clueless rat), and more. Read the newspaper strip, then go out and buy some Dilbert books.

It is difficult to maintain freshness when you have to churn out a cartoon a day. Some artists manage it better than others. Some know when to quit (Calvin's author), while others go on far too long with basically one or two gags (see Cathy or Garfield). While Scott Adams has had some dips in pure entertainment value, he is remarkable for maintaining a high laugh quotient more times than not - and his latest collection - "I'm not Anti-Business, I'm Anti-Idiot" is a winner and a keeper. The topics are trenchant and oh so accurate while the themes are embarassingly familiar to everyone who has had to share a cubicle. From Alice trying to control her fist of death to Catbert the evil HR Director - all work types are here - and will probably receive their own xeroxed copy of a pertinent cartoon - sent anonymously, of course. Best to get your copy and do it to others, first.

The point-haired Boss is just like my REAL CEO.
The consultants hired by my company are really as cynical and expensive as Dogbert
...sometimes I had the feeling, Scott Adams worked in my office...

Amazing!

Highly recommended, at least for self-defense purposes!

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my teenage nephew, I think he has quite a collection now. He was very happy to get it. We are all Dilbert fans in our family!

It is amazing how some things never change. Sure, the lingo is a bit different and now mobile work stations are more commonplace, but one thing remains the same: the mindset and basic rules of play. What would we do if it all changed? Scott's elephant in the room may appear differently as time passes, but the architecture remains within. Odd that there is some comfort in that.

Worth your time...embrace the paradigm!

Just finished this title on Kindle. As a big fan of Dilbert cartoons, I really enjoyed the stripes in this book especially those that feature the pointy haired boss! While this Dilbert compilation title is one of the older releases, it is amazing to see that many stories in the stripes still hold good in today's corporate / cubicle world.
