This is what you need a five to ten minutes of if your workday was not how you would have liked it to be. When someone high up in the corporate jungle makes decisions you can not understand, or if technical, logical arguments fall short of feelings.....

Filled with classic strips from a classic era, this book harkens back to the day when Dilbert was consistently funny and didn't rely so much on gimmicky characters for cheap laughs.

Dilbert’s grievances with upper management, his job, his co-workers and his life in general continue. What is puzzling is why he’s so blasé about it all. Others sink under, dropping dead from stress, losing their hair or their jobs but Dilbert rarely loses his cool. While he seems doomed to die a bachelor, he maintains perennial hope of getting a girlfriend. Even when Dogbert is concocting (and succeeding in) one of his nefarious schemes, Dilbert barrels through with the blandness that has never ...more

How do I hate thee, Dilbert?
Let me count the ways.

1) You are not funny
2) You are awkwardly written
3) You are ineptly drawn
4) You are mean-spirited
5) You are ridiculous

I have worked in offices, but never one like the office presented in this comic strip. I’ve worked with smart and often dedicated people who really wanted to succeed and took pride in what they did. The bosses, who sometimes had problem personalities, were not stupid as the boss is here, and could never have risen to that level if

Has about 7 recycled strips from the book "Your Accomplishments Are Suspiciously Hard to Verify". However, a good page or two of the Elbonians :)

Dilbert is an engineer who works for a poorly-managed mid-size corporation. His co-workers are hostile, his boss is pointy-haired, and Dilbert himself is less than competent with anything other than engineering. Such as dating.

The Dilbert gag-a-day comic strip has been running since 1989; this collection is of strips from 1992-1993. While details of corporate culture have changed (one set of strips has Dilbert carrying a plethora of electronic devices that would now all be contained in his smart

I used to work in the corporate world. I even sat in a cubicle. I swear Scott Adams must have been sitting in the cube next to me, because I recognize every one of his characters as people I worked with. Dilbert is absolutely hilarious. If you work in corporate America, this will make you laugh. A lot.

This was my first exposure to the Dilbert comic strip. It's an excellent parody of the American workplace, and of computer geeks everywhere. I've since read and enjoyed the entire collection. I find comic strip collections to be excellent, short and pleasant bedtime reading.

True, all Dilbert cartoons are available on, so it's somewhat unnecessary to put it on hold at the library and have them ship it to me. But! I can't curl up on the couch with my laptop as comfortably as I can with a book. Plus, the book has the intro. As for the actual cartoons, Ratbert and the dinos and Elbonia are still major plot lines, just as I like it.

Eh tant qu'ingénieur informaticien, je ne peux qu'être intéressé par les "cartoons" de Scott Adams. On y retrouve des thèmes familiers, comme l'incompréhension entre managememt et informatique, les délocalisations, ... mais plus généralement c'est l'absurdité qui transparaît dans tous les dessins: l'absurdité du monde de l'entreprise et du monde en général.

Je dois cependant dire que les dessins vraiment amusants sont rares. Peut-être est-ce dû au format compact, en 3 cases. Cela n'enlève rien à

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

#7 in the Dilbert series.

741.59 Dilbert series - Cartoons with a satirical view of business management.
The other Dilbert books I have are sort of hybrid, with strips interspersed with paragraphs of text. This is pure comic strips (except for the preface). So I'll insert it here.

Mostly not Adams' best, I'd say, but there are several bits on Dogbert's Good News Network, which are pretty good. We all know that news sources focus on atypical events. But Dogbert reports more accurately. It might be worthwhile to actually do this sort of thing.
Dec 07, 2008 Duane rated it it was amazing
This is one of my favorite Dilbert books simply because Ratbert is showcased quite a bit throughout. If you enjoy humor that's work related, this book is for you.

A collection of Dilbert cartoons. Probably funniest if you have ever been in the IT business and worked out of a cube.
