The Dilbert Principle: A Cubicle's-Eye View of Bosses, Meetings, Management Fads Other Workplace Afflictions
The Dilbert Principle A Cubicle'sEye View of Bosses Meetings Management Fads Other Workplace Afflictions Author:Scott Adams A collection of four hundred Dilbert cartoons offers a wise and wicked look at corporate America, capturing a world of constantly changing management fads, overbearing egos, management incompetence, bureaucracy, performance reviews, information traffic jams, and more.
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.
