Random Acts of Management (Dilbert #15)

4.04  ·  Rating Details ·  598 Ratings  ·  11 Reviews
In Random Acts of Management, cartoonist Scott Adams offers sardonic glimpses once again into the lunatic office life of Dilbert, Dogbert, Wally, and others, as they work in an all-too-believably ludicrous setting filled with incompetent management, incomprehensible project acronyms, and minuscule raises.

El universo Dilbert, que tantas tiras interesantes tiene, pierde un poco cuando empiezas a verlas todas juntas. El título no te ayuda a saber de qué época es el libro, dada la enorme lista de libros publicados, pero son todos tan parecidos que creo que no importa leerlos en desorden. El hecho de que el autor sea un perfecto capullo tampoco ayuda a cogerle aprecio al personaje, aunque no debería ser así, lo reconozco.
El caso es que hay muchas tiras divertidas, pero otras muchas son golpes bajos

Ever wondered what is the management thinking...
Tired of annual reorgs?
You might just find the answer here..
But in my opinion, this book is not as funny as the others.

It's funny, but it gets old after a while

I love Dilbert! It amazes me how Scott Adams finds the truth behind all those assinine decisions that corporate America seems to make each and every day! You'll love seeing Dilbert try to survive daily work when his co-workers seem to plot against him and management seems to be completely lost. A great read for anyone who enjoys work related humor.

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
