About the Author

What started as a doodle has turned Scott Adams into a superstar of the cartoon world. Dilbert debuted on the comics page in 1989, while Adams was in the tech department at Pacific Bell. Adams continued to work at Pacific Bell until he was voluntarily downsized in 1995. He has lived in the San Francisco Bay area since 1979.

Customer Reviews

My only complaint is that this is not new material.
Marvin R. Doering
Guess I won't be wasting my money on any more of these Dilbert books at least until I can be sure they are new strips and not just old collections repackaged.
Roger Farnham
Some of the humor in the strips is dated and even the non-dated strips aren't very funny.

I'm a big Dilbert fan, and was looking forward to this collection - until I started going through it and discovered it contained strips already in other collections over the years! So if you don't have any of the collections, this would be a good place to start, but if you already do, save your money!

In addition to my disappointment that Scott Adams has put out, yet again, another book that doesn't package recent strips (say, covering 2010-2011) in chronological order, I discovered at least three strips that were duplicated within the book. Strips appearing on pages 106 (Ratbert's dream of becoming a sadist), 115 (Bob and Ratbert worshipping Dogbert), and 131 (pirate CEO Dogbert ransoming back employees to himself) appear AGAIN on pages 165 (1) and 167 (2). There are probably more. Like other reviews posted here, I too am done ever buying another Dilbert collection. I own most but not all of the previous 38 books, having successfully avoided one or two like this one that jumbled strips from the whole history of Dilbert in a random order, but this one slipped through my net. Part of me thinks that this was the ironic intention of the book; after all, look at the title. Well, I'm getting smart and am going to be cheap -- I'm not buying any more of these "collections" that sprinkle in a few recent strips with older ones, in no particular order, and with duplicates.

My only complaint is that this is not new material. It is one of those compilation books from previous published material. As a Dilbert aficionado I have already seen all these cartoons before. It may have said that in the Amazon ad but it was not an obvious part of the advertisement if it did. The material, as always with Dilbert, is first class humor, but being a rerun it is not as great a value.

I would like for Amazon to put somewhere in BIG letters, "This is an ANTHOLOGY edition containing NO new material." The strip on the first page is dated 3/2/1997 - over 15 years old. The rest of the book is similar.

In the past, they said "Treasury" or "Anthology" for these types of rehashes, but now you don't know until you get it. It just says "Dilbert Collections". Well, they're all collections, so that really isn't a good word to use.

I hope they go back to saying "Treasury" or "Anthology".

I was thrilled to see there was a new Dilbert book out and immediately pre-ordered it. Upon arrival I was as disappointed as the other reviewers to find this was all old material. Much as I love Dilbert I think this will be my last purchase.

Like many of the other reviewers, I was almost fooled into buying this book. What made me realize this was likely an anthology was the page count (most new material books are only 128 pages). For this reason, I think the upcoming book titled

"Your New Job Title Is "Accomplice""

contains new material.

I really enjoy Dilbert, but the constant re-releases of old material packaged into new books make it difficult to be a fan.

Format: Paperback
I CAN'T REMEMBER IF WE'RE CHEAP OR SMART is a collection of "Dilbert" comic strips throughout the history of the strip. However, it's not a very good collection. All of these strips have appeared in other collections before. The strips aren't presented in chronological order. There are strips that appear two times in the book. Some of the humor in the strips is dated and even the non-dated strips aren't very funny. Although this isn't a good "Dilbert" collection, it is a good representation of what has happened to "Dilbert" over the years. This is a book that only the most die-hard of "Dilbert" fans will want.

As most of the other reviewers have already noted, this is a book of previously released material, and it wasn't clearly stated in the description. What I found more distressing, though, was the number of repeated panels with in the book itself. That just shows shoddy worksmanship and poor editing.
p 106 top p165 top
p115 bottom p167 middle
p131 top p167 bottom

There may have been others, but I am too lazy to go throughb looking for them.
