Packed within these colorful pages, fans will find all their favorite characters, including Dilbert, as he encounters daily issues from delegating to decision-making, trade shows to telecommuting, and downsizing to annoying coworkers. It's business as usual for the Dilbert clan. . . . Dilbert is continually updating his resume, Dogbert continues his pursuit of world domination, Wally strives to do the least amount of work possible, and Alice is eternally frustrated by the Boss. Welcome to the all-too-familiar world of Dilbert-the lowly engineer who has become an icon for oppressed and burntout workers everywhere!

No matter how outrageous a tale he spins, Dilbert creator Scott Adams inserts sufficient nuggets of truth in every strip to keep his believers laughing. In part, that's because Dilbert is based on his own former corporate experiences-and is kept current by culling inspiration from the 350-plus E-mails he receives each day. Keep Dilbert Gives You the Business close at hand-as you would your phone book, Internet diversion tool, browser, and any other work.

Extra Content

From Our Editors

The perennially diffident Dilbert is a favourite among contemporary North American cartoons, and no wonder. The calm centre of a chaotic workplace, Dilbert represents the heels and heroes in the pre-millennium office environment. This marvellous collection culls strips from a decade of syndication, specially requested by the fans for the fans. Dilbert Gives You the Business reflects 10 years of Dilbert — and the rest of us — at work, the centerpiece of our culture. Creator Scott Adams tells it like it is with the Boss, the Intern, Administration, and of course, the megalomaniacal Dogbert.
