Rated 5 out of 5 by from The funniest book I've read This book was very funny. There were some of the funniest practical jokes in the book.There were also lots of comic strips to. I laghed my head off. This book is my favourite Dilbert book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Joy of Work Dilbert business sense strikes again in this entertaining - though not entirely relevant - framework for dealing with modern business. This book is hilarious, not just because of the obvious Dilbertisms throughout, but because of all the great pranks, stories and letters sent in by readers, proving that we all hold little vindictive grudges against our bosses (except me, of course). If nothing else, it's a great guide to getting even the day before your resignation papers hit the desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good tips This is another book in essay form interspersed with cartoons. One of my favorite headings has something to do with how to drive your coworkers crazy and profit from it. Well, perhaps quite not that bad, but there is worthwhile advice in here, as well as brief accounts of Scott's background when he relates an anecdote about his former coworkers.

About the Author

Scott Adams, Cartoonist Scott Adams was born and raised in Windham, New York in the Catskill Mountains. He received a B.A. in economics from Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. He is also a certified hypnotist. Adams worked in a bank for eight years and, while a bank teller, was robbed twice at gunpoint. He also worked for Pacific Bell for nine years and describes both jobs as "humiliating and low paying jobs." It was during this time, that Adams created the character Dilbert. He was entertaining himself during meetings by drawing insulting cartoons of his co-workers and bosses. In 1988, he mailed some sample comic strips featuring Dilbert to some major cartoon syndicates. He was offered a contract and Dilbert was launched in approximately fifty papers in 1989. Adams began working on Dilbert full time as well as speaking, writing, doing interviews, and designing artwork for licensed products. Dilbert is published in over 1,200 newspapers and has a hard cover business book called "The Dilbert Principle."

Your overlords will think it's a self-improvement book. Only you'll know it's actually a collection of Dilbert cartoons and tips for livening up the work day.
