Item description for The Dilbert Principle: A Cubicle's-Eye View of Bosses, Meetings, Management Fads & Other Workplace Afflictions by Scott Adams...

Publishers Description

The creator of Dilbert, the fastest-growing comic strip in the nation (syndicated in nearly 1000 newspapers), takes a look at corporate America in all its glorious lunacy. Lavishly illustrated with Dilbert strips, these hilarious essays on incompetent bosses, 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 workplace.

Now he takes the next step, attacking corporate culture head-on in this lighthearted series of essays. Packed with more than 100 hilarious cartoons, these 25 chapters explore the zeitgeist of ever-changing management trends, overbearing egos, management incompetence, bottomless bureaucracies, petrifying performance reviews, three-hour meetings, the confusion of the information superhighway and more. With sharp eyes, and an even sharper wit, Adams exposes -- and skewers -- the bizarre absurdities of everyday corporate life. Readers will be convinced that he must be spying on their bosses, The Dilbert Principle rings so true

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dilbert Principle: A Cubicle's-Eye View of Bosses, Meetings, Management Fads & Other Workplace Afflictions?

I almost died laughing whilst reading this book  Apr 9, 2008
Absolutely hysterically tearfully gaspingly chokingly hilarious. But also a very accurate depiction of how the business world can be - now THAT is scary!
Hysterically Funny  Feb 26, 2008
I am not a big reader, but I read the excerpt for this book online one day (of course during a bad day at work), and couldn't stop laughing. I ordered it that night and read the whole book in less than 2 days. As I said, I am not a big reader (I work in IT ... I read specs and they're usually wrong), but I couldn't put it down. Adams makes light of every folly in corporate America .... incentive plans, HR, consultants, management, scorecards/reviews, peers, the art of slacking off and looking busy ........ if you don't like this book, you do not work in corporate America.
The Best Collection of Newspaper Strips that I Have Seen!  Nov 8, 2007
I am a huge Dilbert Fan having worked in a cubicle most of my professional career and this book had so many situations presented that I myself had experienced. Adams' Dilbert has much of the same frustration as I do at times.

Excellent and hilarious!
Best and truest workplace book EVER!  Sep 17, 2007
subject says it all- just get it and you will laugh your hiney off. Plently of Dilbert cartoon panels disbursed throughout. Published in 1996 but absolutely timeless and just as applicable today as ever; probably always will be.
A funny, smart, and revealing look into workplace dynamics  Aug 16, 2007
Yeah, we all know Dilbert. Meetings are waste of time, managers are stupid, and co-workers are imbeciles. I half expected this book to be full of these cliches. Not even close. Scott Adams does an excellent job of showing the humor of a job with smart observances and clever ideas. From the absurd yet funny comics, to actual written letters from organizations, and his own personal experiences - Adams gives out humor that is relevant, funny, and pertinent. His topics range from management, to consultants, to engineers, to marketing, and much more. He touches on all facets of the workplace in a manner that couldn't be handled well in a few comic strips.

I'm working and getting my MBA now, and this sort of book tends to ground me. It's a quick and easy read. Nothing special, but very smart and funny.
