Availability: Ready to download

From mountain and valley, from hill and dale, people are asking, "How can I have more Dilbert in my life?" Help is at hand with a blast from the past in Scott Adams' very first compilation of Dilbert comic strips, Always Postpone Meetings with Time-Wasting Morons. It is tempting to compare Adams' work to that of Leonardo da Vinci. The differences are striking. Adams display From mountain and valley, from hill and dale, people are asking, "How can I have more Dilbert in my life?" Help is at hand with a blast from the past in Scott Adams' very first compilation of Dilbert comic strips, Always Postpone Meetings with Time-Wasting Morons. It is tempting to compare Adams' work to that of Leonardo da Vinci. The differences are striking. Adams displays good jokes and strong character development, whereas da Vinci has been skating for years on his ability to do shading. Advantage: Adams. And though it may seem boorish to point this out, da Vinci wrote backwards. And he's dead. Advantage: Adams. The choice is clear. Fans looking for a book which will stand the test of time, even beyond the time you spend flipping through it in the bookstore (for which the author receives no royalties whatsoever), should buy this book. Those who are not good comparison shoppers can buy the Mona Lisa.

    A delightful collection of humorous Dilbert cartoons. I love Dilbert because, if I were honest, I worked with co-workers like in Dilbert's office. A great laugh! My Rating: 5 stars

    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

    I guess I should have started with some more recent stuff. This was a weird blend of absurdist humor and typical comic strip topics,none of the office space humor that it has become known for.

    Dilbert was just evolving here - it got a lot better.

    Early Dilbert is Classic Dilbert.

    This first Adam's installment does not occur within the usual Dilbert workplace. Read it a couple of decades ago, it used to be hilarious but I think the joke isn't funny anymore.

    Plenty of great strips. Rather random because not all the characters were identified or entirely developed yet.

    Sbírka stripů o Dilbertovi a Dogbertovi na všechna možná i nemožná témata. Bezva odpočinková kniha, u které se člověk pobaví a zasměje.

    Always Postpone Meetings with Time-Wasting Morons / 0836217586 This is the first book of Dilbert collections; I've been re-reading my collection lately and I love that there are still a lot of chuckles to be had in this slim volume. There's a little over 11 pages here, and some comics take up two full pages side-by-side, but this is still something of a must-have item for Dilbert collections.

If you're really just a fan of the newer Dilbert strips, this book may be a little surprising. The art-style is very different and has definitely evolved a lot over the years, but most surprisingly is that very few of the comics here are strictly about "work" so much as just about being a "geeky" engineer type. Quite a few of the strips are heavily pun-laden and at least a few are setups for jokes that aren't quite worth the buildup, but there are still chuckles to be had and I almost wish some of the newer strips could leave the office some more and head out for the classic Dilbert-and-Dogbert walk in the park. ~ Ana Mardoll

    Dilbert has always had a contentious relationship with his pet Dogbert (or Dogbert has always had one with his human Dilbert). This book deals almost exclusively with that relationship as we chuckle, smirk and smack our foreheads at Dogbert’s constant manipulation of the clueless humans around him, starting with his gullible master. Dilbert’s inabilities to process any basic information beyond technology or develop social skills that will allow him to have a girlfriend remain intact.

One wonders why Dogbert isn’t the one getting the ladies. Then again Dogbert is more interested in world domination and likely to achieve it, too.

    Scott Adams shows the funny/not so funny life of a cubicle dweller. I worked at a place that expressly forbade any Dilbert cartoons in your work station, so I find this book extremely amusing. Sometimes it hits a little too close for comfort, which is the reason my former workplace did not allow it. Even if you're not a cubicle dweller, work is work in any field. And the same situations pop up at work places. And Scott Adams shows us how to laugh at the weirdness of work.

    The first Dilbert book by Scott Adams is very charming and contains very early material. The title of the book was extremely appealing to me as I have wasted a great deal of time in such meetings. Thank you for pointing it out Mr Adams! And of course Dogbert!!! Dogbert for President of the world!!!!

    Scott Adams' first Dilbert book. A little all over the place, a little wonky, but still in the stage of his work I like the best. The part that's not all about the office. Also amusing because Pointy-Haired Boss is not yet pointy-haired.

    Dilbert and Dogbert never fail to amuse me, a certified corporate slave.

    Yay! I love Dilbert. Just re-read this one tonight. Evelyn couldn't understand why I was laughing out loud most of the way through, but she laughed along anyway.

    A compilation of comics which roughly tie into the title. More hits than misses and as a fan of Dilbert I did enjoy the compilation.
