Overview

It's an embarrassment of riches. I feel like an undertaker who just heard about a bus accident. It's tragic, but good for business."
Maybe, just maybe, the reason Scott Adams is able to so completely and utterly skewer the absurdities of the modern workplace is that deep down he really enjoyed his many years as a cubicle dweller. Perhaps his comic strip Dilbert is nothing more than a cleverly disguised 17-year-long love letter to corporate America.

And maybe, just maybe, monkeys will fly out of Donald Trump's butt.

In Try Rebooting Yourself, AMP's 28th Dilbert collection, the world's most dysfunctional office family is back and doing what it does best. Wally adroitly steers clear of new assignments-and perfects his "work grimace." The Pointy-Haired Boss (PHB) thinks of new ways to demoralize and disenfranchise his employees. (As part of a new strategy to make the pension plan solvent, he reminds employees "Smoking is cool.") Dogbert continues his lucrative consulting business. And Dilbert, alas, he soldiers and smolders on, searching for intelligent life in the corporate universe-and maybe, just maybe, a little action. (Fat chance.)

This time out, the gang is joined by a host of odd (but strangely familiar) guest characters including the clueless Hammerhead Bob, and Petricia, the PHB's fawning but ferocious sycophant. All office workers may now nod knowingly.

Editorial Reviews

Day in, day out, Dilbert shows up at work, ever ready to reshuffle paperclips, reorganize email files, and, perhaps, just perhaps, find some intelligent life in the corporate universe. Try Rebooting Yourself, the 28th Dilbert collection, delivers cubicle-sized slices of wisdom about the way business really is. A pedagogic gift for PHBs (Pointy-Haired Bosses).

Scott Adams is always spot-on about big-company life. Whenever I read Dilbert it feels like Adams was one cubicle over from me during my whole career. His characters are so well drawn (literally and figuratively) for the small space he has to convey what they're thinking and feeling. Dilbert never fails to make me laugh and put work in its proper perspective.
