The creator of Dilbert, the fastest-growing comic strip in the nation, takes a look at corporate America in all its glorious lunacy.These hilarious essays on incompetent bosses, rampant management fads, bewildering technological changes, and so much more, will make anyone who has ever worked in an office laugh out loud in recognition.The Dilb...  more »Since 1989, Scott Adams has been illustrating this principle each day, lampooning the corporate world through Dilbert, his enormously popular comic strip. In Dilbert, the potato-shaped, abuse-absorbing hero of the strip, Adams has given voice to the millions of Americans buffeted by the many adversities of the work place.Now he takes the next step, attacking corporate culture head-on in this light-hearted series of essays. Adams explores the zeitgeist of ever-changing management trends, overbearing egos, management incompetence, bottomless bureaucracies, petrifying performance reviews, three-hour meetings, the confusion of the information super highway, and more. With sharp eyes, and an even sharper wit, Adams exposes, and skewers, the bizarre absurdities of everyday corporate life. The Dilbert Principle rings so true! Listeners will be convinced that he has been spying on their bosses.

It's a readable and amusing book; but I don't see how to take Adams' business advice seriously, given how obviously he hates the business world. If everybody did exactly as he says we should, do you suppose he'd run out of things to mock, or things to bitch and moan about? I doubt it.

Scott Adams' insight into the corporate work environment should be required reading for everyone who is in management, working their way into management, or studying to be in management. It's exactly what he says: a "cubicle's-eye view". And, of course, his Dilbert cartoons are ROFL. This book isn't just a cartoon book - it's as much text as cartoons, as Adams' explains his view of the many organization issues and problems he lampoons in his cartoons.
