"Once every decade, America is gifted with an angst-ridden anti-hero, a Nietzschean nebbish, an us-against-the-universe everyperson around whom our insecurities collect like iron shavings to a magnet. Charlie Chaplin. Dagwood Bumstead. Charlie Brown. Cathy. Now, Dilbert." --The Miami Herald

The former occupant of cubicle 4S700R at Pacific Bell seems to have made a go of thi

Like my previous comments about Gary Larson and his Far Side Gallery 4 this book has some very witty observations which having (and still working) in similar environments never ceases to amuse and amaze me. Ok I think in the past Dilburt has had been everywhere and at times over exposed but I guess that is as much a sign of its success as anything.
However this book contains a lot of very early works where characters have not been completely formed in to those you recognise today. However it is s

Good collection

This is a good collection of Dilbert comics. One fun thing about it is the book includes early comics from Adams, and more current ones. This lets you see the differences in his style over time. A good read for Dilbert fans!

Definitely towards the top end of these compilations. I particularly enjoyed the evolution of Alice, the long series of Ted strips, and the early days of catbert.

Overall a pretty edgy selection.

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys office oriented satire
Shelves: humor
A collection of several choice strips from Dilbert ranging throughout the years.

Not the best Dilbert collection since it does range out of order throughout the years, however, it is enjoyable for anyone who likes Dilbert and/or office oriented satire!

A collection of comic strips that deal with associations between coworkers. Since the collection only includes those specific comic strips, story lines are not followed and sometimes you start reading in the middle.

I don't typically read my husband's Dilbert books, but I couldn't put this one down. It was like eating potato chips. I shared some of the funnier ones with my parents last night - the shrinking cubicles, and the chess cubicles.

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

to round up... it's still funny but not as many laughs in this one.
he's still funnier and more relevant than most:)

Borders bargain bin. I thought I owned all the Dilbert treasuries but did not recognize this one. Read it, but was mostly very old content and I'd seen 80% of it before.

Love the comics, but this one had a few repeated strips, some right below the strip it was repeating.
