"Any other day would cause a stock plunge."

This comic strip has certainly improved as the series progresses. New characters have been added to the cast and personalities for all of the characters seem to have solidified. I think more of the jokes are landing as well.

Mr. Adams' books should be require reading for anyone going into (or currently in) management/administration. Maybe his comic strips could save us working stiffs some insanity.
Above average selection of strips - plenty of management and catbert stuff, which is my favorite. Also plenty of dogbert going around.
gotta love Dilbert

One of my favorite comic strips. A funny side note: in this particular book there is a 3 day run on a few procurement jokes. My boss had been in procurement before transferring to his current position. I copied the comics and he thoroughly enjoyed it and is now planning to send them to his former procurement colleagues. I love Dilbert.

First Dilbert book I bought. Loved it. One of my all-time favorite strips is in this one, I believe it is on Page. 101. I thought it was hysterical when I first read it.

Yes, this shows my nerdish side. Yes, I know it exists. But Dogbert is still one of my idols.
I have always been a fan. Adams is a genius. He has the unique ability to see a business situation and see how crazy and messed up it is. Now that I work in an office, these books have become my bible. Every word is true.
I heart Dilbert. It's been a while since I've read this, or others, but along with Get Fuzzy, Dilbert is among my favorite comic strips out there in the post-Far Side, post-Calvin and Hobbes world that we live in.
Great writing of a time and place that is already mostly gone. The artwork? Too simple, but there are lots of nice touches (such as when Dogbert is in an especially naughty mood, wagging his tiny tail).

I love Dilbert and I was sad that I didn't enjoy this collection. It was very repetitive. There were a couple really good ones though - the journalism major one made my day!
Didn't laugh as much as with the other books and only a few comics dealt with the title of the book. Overall I give it a 2 star rating for 'o.k '.

I don't know if anyone would have noticed me in a bathrobe or a superhero costume, but I worked at an ad agency. It's still funny.

While I'm on a Dilbert kick - I've owned this book for about a decade now - never fails to provide a laugh if I really need one...

Recommends it for: Dilbert fans, engineers (lol)
Hilarious. Adams doesn't disappoint, as usual. Good way to perk me up on a weekend night :)
One of Adams' best collections.
