What would the world of work be like without Dilbert? Downright insufferable!

When it became syndicated in 1989, Dilbert struck a nerve with workers everywhere. Through its frames they saw life on the job as they knew it, with all the absurdity, craziness, and dry humor that underlies any living, breathing organization. The fact that the strip focused on a hapless engineer and his cynical dog just made it all the more funny.

Now work life seems downright unimaginable without Dilbert and Dogbert's take on everything from management ill-practices to nonperformance reviews. What Would Wally Do?, delivers that same combination of pain and humor that readers count on. This collection especially highlights Wally, Dilbert's colleague, fellow engineer, foil, and fool.

Wally's that short quirky guy with little hair, plenty of horn-rimmed frames, and almost zero work ethic. After all, who's got time for a job, thinks the self-proclaimed "Lord Wally the Puppet Master," when you're busy surviving the "Mobility Pool," turning your cubicle into a tourist attraction called "Sticky-Note City," and selecting a mail-order bride from Elbonia? Weasel-Boy makes a point of highlighting his poor performance and lack of respect . . .and usually gets another raise for his efforts. Such is life in Dilbert and Wally's world. Such are the laughs in What Would Wally Do? 

Editorial Reviews

No cubicle jungle would be complete without a Wally. You know the type: A short, quirky guy with horn-rimmed glasses and no work ethic. Self-described as "kind of a Renaissance loser," Wally prowls the halls of Dilbert's firm, kvetching and malingering when he's not attempting to manipulate the boss. In Scott Adams's 26th Dilbert book, the office nemesis takes command. We giggle as this comic strip Casanova selects a mail-order bride from Elbonia and watch enviously as he wiggles out of even the smallest assignment.
