Your New Job Title Is "Accomplice": A Dilbert Bookby Scott Adams
As fresh a look at the inanity of office life as it brought to the comics pages when it first appeared in 1989, this 40th AMP Dilbert collection/i>
Dubbed "the cartoon hero of the workplace" by the San Francisco Examiner, Dilbert is the cubicle-bound star of the most photocopied, pinned-up, downloaded, faxed, and e-mailed comic strip in the world.
As fresh a look at the inanity of office life as it brought to the comics pages when it first appeared in 1989, this 40th AMP Dilbert collection comically confirms to the working public that we all really know what's going on. Our devices might be more sophisticated, our software and apps might be more plentiful, but when it gets down to interactions between the worker bees and the clueless in-controls, discontent and sarcasm rule, as only Dilbert can proclaim.

When the economy is doing well, companies are a little more careful with their people. In the current economy, Scott has plenty of material. And this is properly formatted for comic reading, as opposed to earlier collections that were just pages of graphic files, so the display is better and faster.
What I liked: I’ve never really read comics but I’m on a journey to lighten up so I thought I’d start with this. It was light hearted and fun. What I didn’t like: Is this really how bad it’s gotten? I think that’s the entire reason I didn’t enjoy this more — I was trying to determine how much of this is really how things work.
