    Definitely older Dilbert. Number 2 of the books. Continued fun, but very focused on Dogbert's lessons on business. Definitely older Dilbert. Number 2 of the books. Continued fun, but very focused on Dogbert's lessons on business.

    One of the best books I've read on work life. When you read this at a time in your life when work is draining you out, it makes you think if all this ever matters. A super funny, well articulated read. One of the best books I've read on work life.

    I don't know why I keep reading this series; there are funnier comic strips out there. But it's not taking up much of my brain space, and they're fun and relatable to some extent, so it's a good chill and decompress read each night.

    Sometimes you just need a escape from a lot on nonsense in the name of art and entertainment and dive into the world that may look unbelievable and stupid at first but makes more sense than sages. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

    I prefer the early dilbert books like this one that are predominantly comics. Sometimes the jokes and sarcasm stand the test of time, and some miss the mark a little today, but they still do a great job of representing the extremes.

    This is fun book for anyone who has ever worked in an office to read and appreciate the satire. It was written in the 1990's but not much has changed and I am seeing the same characters and actions happening in 2021.

    If you have a long lunch and want a few chuckles, this is a great book. Whether you have ever spent any time in the corporate life, you can still appreciate the torpidity of such an existence.

    Build a Better Life by Stealing Office Supplies / 0836217578 Recently I started re-reading my Dilbert collections; this is the second collection of unique strips by my count, but they're not precisely Dilbert strips in the traditional sense: each page is a single 4-panel strip where the first panel is Dogbert explaining a rule of business.

The strips are very funny and actually sadly seem quite a "spot on" reflection, even dated as this volume is. I do wish that there was less of a reliance on female stereotypes in some of the pieces -- there's at least two strips that indicate that nicely dressed women are either likely having affairs with upper management or hoping to skate by on sex appeal. Adams can be funnier than that and doesn't need to resort to these stereotypes; fortunately these strips are two out of ~100 and the rest of the book is very funny and fun. (And his later collections have moved away from these "jokes" entirely, I believe.) ~ Ana Mardoll

    It is weird to see Dilbert's work place from over 20 years ago. There seems to be some version of the pointy-haired boss, but his hair is not yet pointy. He also isn't as clueless, and seems a little bigger and meaner. Dogbert, of course is there (he IS on the cover), but he hadn't yet developed into self-serving mastermind he is today. There are no other regular characters - no Wally, Alice, Ratbert,or Asok.

The material seems to be written just for this book, not a compilation of previously published comic strips. It's organized into short chapters covering different business topics. Each page is like a single comic strip with 3-4 panels. So at 111 pages, there is not really a whole lot to the book. It's pretty funny, but nothing that makes me want to hang a page up in my cubicle.

    Anyone who has ever worked in an office or any work setting can find humor in the Dilbert comics and directly relate to many of the situations. Scott Adams has a great way of ridiculing all that is ridiculous in business. I think most execs would do well to read this, before implementing the next big project (and wasting money) to understand their personnel better than any team-building exercise will ever offer.

    I think that Dilbert is so funny because the stuff is true. I read this while attending a project management course and within a few minutes I found a couple of strips that applied directly to what I was working on. If you work in an office environment, there will be more than a few laughs and moments of nodding in agreement. Scott Adams's office humour is real. Enjoy.

    Hilarious and informative. There is no better practical guide to navigating corporate America than Dogbert and this guidebook. I no longer fear spending the next 20 years in a cubicle, for I am totally prepared. Thank you Dogbert, I owe you one.

    Cute. Not the comic strip from the paper, this was much more of a book. Also, in the forward, or somewhere in the book, it says that Adams worked as a temp at a company for two weeks, but I'm pretty sure he worked at AT&T for years, and that's where his fodder came from.

    What to say except that this guy is the funniest and most insightful commentator on business in the 90's of anyone writing today. This is the first book and it shows his great promise. See esp "how to make your boring job seem dangerous." This review was originally written in 1994.

    covers a lot of topics, pretty inciteful the animation is early, but the humor is there. i was expecting some pretty unfunny stuff ala early garlfield.

    We all might have started out like Calvin with a great view of life. But after hitting the workforce we all somewhat become Dilbert. Everyone knows someone like one of the characters in the strips. Highly recommended
