So look: I know it's not cool to like Dilbert, or whatever, but I am currently dealing with an epic amount of administrative stupidity at my job, and reading Dilbert puts me in a calmer place ... except for the strips that seem to have come directly from my email inbox. Then I have to weep gently into my box of wine; on the plus side, the wine eventually soothes the pain, so: win-win.

Great textbook on corporate culture!
It's Dilbert. You must purchase this book or you will be an induhvidual instead of the New Ruling Class, like me. You'll rank higher if you convince someone to buy it for you.
I found Adams to by hysterical and insightful. True to life. Work life, that is.

If you like Dilbert, then buy this book!

Dilber it an office working engineer, who struggles with an incompetent boss and backstabbing, slimey employees. The humor is at times dry and childish, but hey, it's worth it!

This is a very fun book, and covers a couple of years of publications.
Dilbert! It is near impossible to love every comic Scott Adams draws. Even though I've never worked in an office building I can still find humor in every frame. I especially love Catbert: Evil Director of Human Resources and all his crazy plans.

I haven't looked at a Dilbert strip since I was in middle school. I'm not sure why this humor would have appealed to someone who had never been in an office.

Anyone who has worked at any company can identify with this humorous look at the workplace. That, and Wally is my hero!

Classic Dilbert. Gems in this series are the monkey who uses his tail to run the mouse, and the various bits about cubicles.
Dilbert rules, it's odd how one can relate to this, never having worked in an office setting.
Good collection of comic strips. Some funny, some not. Overall though, most are.
Another good installment of Dilbert, though not as organized as the last one I read.
One of my favourites. I'd borrow it from my dad and read it again and again and again.
