What would the world of work be like without Dilbert? Downright insufferable!

When it became syndicated in 1989, Dilbert struck a nerve with workers everywhere. Through its frames they saw life on the job as they knew it, with all the absurdity, craziness, and dry humor that underlies any living, breathing organization. The fact that the strip focused on a hapless engineer

The Dilbert character Wally is my role model. No questions about it. I follow his advice religiously. To me he is the next Messiah. (Sorry Dogbert!)

This book contains a wealth of Wally Wisdom. It was my privilege to read this book by ignoring all the work that was assigned to me.

I even got someone else to type this review as I am a true discipline of Wally.

All Hail Wally!!!!

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

Shelves: humor
This is a typical Dilbert book; it's a hilarious look at incompetent corporate silliness; if you're familiar with the Dilbert strips and know that you like them, you'll certainly want to read this one. If you're not familiar with them, this is as good a place to start as any. If you've read other Dilbert books and didn't care for them, you won't want to read this one, but you don't need me to tell you that.

Worth reading, even if you think you've had all the office humor you can stand for the forward about the co-worker who inspired Wally.
