Overview

Everyone who's in business, works for a business, or even just gives others the business is amazed: Scott Adams never lacks for yet another way to lampoon the corporate world. It's not that Adams is anti-business. He's more anti-bad boss than anything. But poor management practices, the effects of bad decisions, and what it all means for the average worker add up to more comedic material than even the man who created Dilbert can tame.

Since Dilbert was first syndicated in 1989, Adams has built a following that would be the envy of any corporate sales and marketing team. His work not only generates howls from readers as they rush to plaster it on lunch-room refrigerators and scan it into interoffice e-mails, it has those same fans reading about "their" workplaces every Sunday in a multiple-panel, color format. And that's what this treasury, The Collected Dilbert Sundays, provides. This collection offers yet another glimpse into the zany life of Dilbert, Dogbert, Ratbert, and the rest of the crazy cube crew through the masterpiece Sunday comics. Here's even more of the great Adams's irony, sarcasm, and satire that so many have come to depend upon to cope with the corporate workplace. The Collected Dilbert Sundays humorously continues the tradition of poking fun at the world of business from which we all seek to temporarily escape.

Editorial Reviews

Dilbert: A Treasury Of Sunday Strips, Version 00 is a compilation of all the colorful Sunday cartoons of America's favorite corporate wage-slave, his zany colleagues, pointy-haired boss, and animal companions Dogbert, Catbert (the evil Human Resources director), and Ratbert. Dilbert is an amazing blend of irony, sarcasm, satire, and all-too-often painful truths about life in the modern business cubical. Dilbert: A Treasury Of Sunday Strips, Version 00 is a "must" for the growing legions of Dilbert fans.

Several comic strips are repeated on multiple pages. Several strips have a font too small for me to read and attempting to enlarge the font has no effect. No wonder this book was on sale.

I have enjoyed Dilbert for years, so I looked forward to reading the book. However, I found that this is an example of why not all books can be turned into electronic format. I could not get the strips enlarged to a readable size. In discussion with friends who have far more experience with e readers than I, they told me this is a problem they have encountered as well. Bottom line, save your money and buy it in hard copy.

I really enjoyed these. Yes, one comic was repeated twice in the begining, but that was the only one. One out of a hundred ain't bad. Also if you have a nook, just double tap the comic to see a larger image you can read better. Being a huge fan of this comic I give this book a five out of five office meetings.
