Format: Paperback
America's favorite cubicle-dweller, Dilbert, is back in I'M TEMPTED TO STOP ACTING RANDOMLY, a collection of "Dilbert" comic strips from July 26, 2009-May 2, 2010. The previous two or three collections of "Dilbert" strips before I'M TEMPTED TO STOP ACTING RANDOMLY have been a bit of a let down. Comics in general use some of the same jokes over and over. It's the nature of the game and in a more narrowly focused strip, such as "Dilbert", the same jokes will be seen more often because the world of the strip is smaller. However, the past several "Dilbert" collections have been overly repetitive. There were no memorable storylines and hardly anything interesting happened to the characters.

I'M TEMPTED TO STOP ACTING RANDOMLY steps outside of the box. The characters are the same and some of the jokes are the same, but overall things are more fresh and original. The Pointy-haired Boss hires a foodie to work for the company, Dilbert grows wings, Alice is sent to cultural sensitivity training, Asok looses his soul to the company's new ombudsman, Dilbert is forced to complete an unfinished project (left by an employee who quit) that ends up turning people into goat-headed hybrids, and Aosk gets a weird disease that causes his nose to grow whenever someone lies at a business meeting which causes him to get a nose transplant from a veterinarian. There are also a few visits with the Elbonians and Dilbert goes on more dates in this collection than I can remember him being on for years.

However, the best story in the entire collection and, perhaps the best story in the history of Dilbert is when Carol messes up the Pointy-haired Boss's security clearance and he has to go into hiding. He gets stuck in the ductwork and eventually ends up dying and going to the afterlife.

Dilbert and friends are as funny as ever in this latest book by Scott Adams. I have enjoyed it thoroughly. All new stuff, no repeats from previous works. Highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
I'm Tempted to Stop Acting Randomly is the latest collection of Dilbert comic strips, known for their utterly ruthless mockery of cubical life, corporate greed, rampant incompetence, gadgetry obsession, and much more. The weekday and Sunday strips from July 26, 2009 to May 2, 2010 are presented in full color (even the normally black-and-white daily strips are colored!) although the true appeal to Dilbert has never been its minimalist art, but rather its laugh-out-loud funny writing. "'We're getting into the financial services game. That way all of our products can be imaginary.' 'Can you give me reliable investment advice?' 'Yes, as far as you know.'" No cow is too sacred and no soul is too fungible for Dilbert and his compatriots, in this mercilessly hilarious collection that makes the perfect gift for any co-worker with a wicked sense of humor.

As a faithful Dilbert follower, I have seen most of these strips before, but it was a lot of fun to see them all compiled into this book. I found myself laughing out loud!

It's nice to have some of the ongoing story-lines all together sequentially, although it seems that not all of the story-lines in this book are complete. Nonetheless, this is a "best-of" compilation that will leave you laughing and smiling, and at a low cost-per-smile. :-D

I'm going to copy and past this into my dilbert reviews, because it's all the same thing.

Dilbert is excellent! All of his comics bring a smile to my face. The only issue with the books is that too many strips are reprinted, so you'll have four books that are 30% or so the same.

Okay, these are chronological strips, not ones about a common subject. That's a good thing because you're not paying for strips you'll read/have read in other books. Dilbert is very funny

Now to the important part. Why on earth would you ask people to write reviews on a e-reader? It's time consuming and painful. Here's an idea Amazon: Let people rate the book on their e-reader than finish the review on something with a keyboard. The review wouldn't get posted until it was finished. You're welcome.

This was a really good book, but it was also long, but that's not really a bad thing for most readers including me

The frustrating daily challenges of working in a cube farm. The usual mix of intelligence and idiots. How nice it is to be retired from this day-to-day lifestyle. Now I can appreciate the humor even more.
