    The same popular Dilbert cartoons we all know... organized differently! These strips are arranged by profession (jokes about middle-managers are all put together, same with salespeople, engineers, etc.) So narrative flow is sacrificed for, I suppose, ease of finding something appropriate for your cubicle wall. This is not the most head-scratching Dilbert collection to hit the market. There's one that added Sudoku puzzles with no more explanation than that Sudoku was the craze of the day.

I don't begrudge Adams his entrepreneurial spirit, but a few of these projects could've been thought up by Dilbert's pointy-haired boss.

    I've always loved Dilbert, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on a collection in book format. "Dilbert Gives You the Business" didn't disappoint. The comics are arranged by job description instead of date. Some comics appear more than once for this reason. One thing I couldn't help but notice is the book is a bit dated (beepers are still used). But if you're old enough to remember using beepers like me, you won't mind and will laugh anyway.

    (Might be skewing the consistency of my ratings by giving this four instead of three stars.) Enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to. Noticed this strip in the newspaper when I was younger but didn't find it funny. I think it gets funnier when you've worked with people in some kind of organisation. It also helped that it was organised by topic, so you don't need much prior knowledge of the comic content to enjoy each strip.

    So bad. Written by a rich guy who thinks he is smart and funny but is very, very wrong. This book made me embarrassed for Scott Adams.

    If you wanted to give the gift of Dilbert, this book would be a great choice - covers a wide variety of topics, conveniently indexed at the side of the page for quick reference. Half of the pages are also full color strips, which is a bit different than the mostly monochrome of prior Dilbert books i've read. Not enough catbert.

    Found this whilst clearing out an old bedroom - an utter delight. Full of cynicism and truth - a great combination. Oh, and very funny too.

    Tragicomic, because there is a lot of truth being said.

    I am always going to give five stars to a Dilbert collection, because I love the comic. However, I probably should not have read this book right on the heels of It's Not Funny If I Have to Explain It, because both of these are best-of collections and as such include a lot of the same material. But anyway, most people won't be reading those two one right after the other, so Dilbert Gives You the Business is still a good read.

The format of this book is unique: it sorts strips by subject matter, so you'll have a section with comics devoted to bosses, one for secretaries, another for marketing, and so on. It's a good mix of comics and contains lots of the favourites, including the quintessential tech support strip where Dogbert tells the guy to stand on his chair and yell over his cubicle wall, "Does anybody know how to read a manual?" Priceless.

    The book is a fun collection of Dilbert strips, collected by theme rather than date. Focused on the business world, it's a good read to brighten a discouraging work day, though some strips might hit home more than others. Topic range from Annoying Coworkers to Security to Performance Reviews. Due to the way it's organized, there's an occasional storyline that has strips in multiple sections, which can be annoying if you want to just read stories.

    This collection of the classic comic strip is a favorite of mind mainly due to how I can relate to the situations and personalities Scott Adams humorously conveys to readers. I am a CPA and have done corporate work for awhile now and there are many laugh out loud moments. However, the humor is somewhat cynical so if you don't like that and your aren't an office worker I would say you should pass on it. I usually don't like cynical humor but I'll make an exception for the inanities that abound in This collection of the classic comic strip is a favorite of mind mainly due to how I can relate to the situations and personalities Scott Adams humorously conveys to readers.

    Most Dilbert strips are funny to begin with, so reading a "Best Of" collection such as this one is a garanteed good time. The strips in this book are organised by topic (Marketing, Human Resources, Interns, Management, and so on...), so if you feel like reading strips about a certain topic you don't have to keep looking through the book to find them. One thing that sometimes dates Dilbert cartoons are the technological references (for example: pagers/beepers), but other than that, the office humo Most Dilbert strips are funny to begin with, so reading a "Best Of" collection such as this one is a garanteed good time.

    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

    The better strips are concentrated in the beginning of the collection, so it starts to wear a little thin towards the end. Also, the editing is a little sloppy - several strips are repeated or in the wrong section.

    Fun--giving you a sense of various business aspects since the cartoons are grouped by theme. Strange that it has been over 20 years since I was in a business (law firm) environment, yet still cringing at the thought that I spent time with some of the stuff raised in this book.

    Funny comics. I like how it was organized by topic. Made it easy to find the perfect comic to show my point.

    Fiction. A sweet collection of the best Dilbert business cartoons, indexed by categories such as programmers, gender relations, consulting and of course, management. First read this in 2000.

    So enjoyable for anyone who needs a lift, especially those who (like me) have ever worked in the corporate world. Many of the strips had me laughing out loud, just what I needed right then.

    Очень контрастные комиксы, от полного уныние до весьма специфичного юмора :)
