Descriere

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 Dilbert Principle: The most ineffective workers will be systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage -- management.

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.

    For anyone who has ever worked in a cubicle or spent too much time in meetings, this book highlights some of the non-sensical happenings of the workplace. Although first published in 1996, it is still relevant today. As stated in the book description, "hilarious essays on incompetent bosses, management fads, bewildering technological changes."

    A must-read for every management-type. Alas, most won't read and wouldn't understand if they did. This is probably the truest book about business that's ever been written -- which makes it hilarious and scary at the same time. -1997

    I have been out of the "office world" for too long. This book just didn't interest me.
  • (5/5)
    Excellent as ever. I was given this book by the company I worked for as a performance reward! I'm sure Dilbert has something to say about that somewhere...

    Dilbert Cartoonist, Scott Adams' first foray into the "business book". He expands on themes that have made his comic strip one of the most popular strips today. His observational humour is interspersed with relevant cartoons as well as emails from his many fans detailing their real-life experiences with pointy-haired bosses.Very Funny

    This book was a nice read for me since I'm recently back in the corporate world. It's amusing with practical advice for office workers mixed into the humor and sarcasm. I've learned a few things, I admit. And it makes me thankful I don't work for a huge company, when I see what some employees have to tolerate.

    A funny take on corporate (America). I've always enjoyed the Dilbert comic strips and this is much in the same vein (including said comic strips). A good look at the idiocy of cubicles, managers, and the office lifestyle.
  • (2/5)
    Meh. I skimmed it. Thank goodness I don't feel its relevance. I did chuckle at some of the examples submitted by fans to Adams.
  • (3/5)
    Not just a cartoon book. About half text.I finally figured it out. Adams comes off as angry, bigoted, and anti-intellectual. I thought that was just a pose. No, that is really what he is. Yes, Europeans, he really does despise you. He is a ranting xenophobic demagogue.

    A management view from the employee's perspective (mine has changed since I'm a pointy haired-boss...)

    Thank you, God, that I don't work in a cubicle.
  • (5/5)
    The absolute truth about big business from the point of the schmuck working for it. Hilariously written, a crapload of Dilbert cartoons throughout.
  • (5/5)
    I knew that Scott Adams has long running hilarious Dilbert comic series. I also knew, from his blog, that he can think quite differently from most people, and that he can amazing breadth and depth on varieties of idea. Having read this book, I can also confirm that he can write a long satire very well. This book, as name says, is humourous look at corporate bureaucracy. Those who can recognize corporate culture as such will finds themselves nodding in agreement often. Those who don't, will probably succeed better in the corporate world. As satires go, this caricatures certain things to laugh at them, but for most part book is quite realistic. His writings is self-deprecating and self-lauding at times, which works well for his writing style. Book is 30% text, 50% cartoons, and 20% real-life letters. Overall a fun read!

    Describes life at many office jobs . . . or any job at which one's boss is a pointy-haired moron. Good for cynical laughs.
  • (4/5)
    Scott Adams is one of my favorite humorists. His incisive, perceptive observations skewer the world of corporate America and beyond. He manages to accomplish this without being too abrasive or mean - no small feat, there. By holding up the mirror to the foibles that plague the business world, Adams offers some means of improvement.
  • (5/5)
    This is the first book that I read from Scott Adams, and it got me hooked!It is funny, realistic, and flat out entertaining.
  • (3/5)
    This was funny,but I found it tedious to try and read in one sitting. It took me about a month of dipping to finish it.
  • (5/5)
    Really funny approach to explaining how office work, things that usually ignore or don’t notice
