Overview

Journey to Cubeville: A Dilbert Book by Scott Adams

"Since Adams parted company with Pacific Bell in 1995, the business he has built out of mocking business has turned into the sort of success story that the average cartoon hero could only dream of."--The London Financial Times

"Go ahead and cut that Dilbert cartoon. Pin it to the wall of your claustrophobic cubicle. Laugh at it around the water cooler, remarking how similar it is to the incomprehensible memos and ludicrous management strategies at your own company."--The Washington Post

Dilbert, Dogbert, and the rest of the world's favorite cubicle dwellers are sure to leave you rolling in your workspace with Scott Adams's cartoon collection, Journey to Cubeville.

Dilbert creator Scott Adams has something special for everyone who thinks their workplace is a living monument to inefficiency--or, for those who have been led to believe unnecessary work is like popcorn for the soul.

Adams lampoons everything in the business world that drives the sane worker into the land of the lunacy:

*Network administrators who have the power to paralyze an entire business with a mere keystroke

*Accountants who force you to battle ferociously to get reimbursed for a $2.59 ham sandwich you scarfed while traveling

*Managers obsessed with perfect-attendance certificates, dead-end projects, and blocking employees from fun web sites and decent office supplies

*Companies spending piles of dough on projects deeply rooted in stupidity, as well as a myriad of stupid consultants

As a Dilbert fan, I enjoyed the content of course. This is a collection of old strip rooted in those years where Dilbert has been devoted to office live and the regular characters, Dilbert, Dogbert, Wally, Alice and the P(ointy) H(aired) B(oss), are pretty well established. I have a Nook Color and a Kindle Fire HD. I still buy comic books (like this) for the Nook Color, as they display a little larger and the tap and zoom feature works a little more cleanly. Just to note, some Dilbert e-books have a messed up document structure and it can be difficult to get the pages to turn sometimes (as opposed to manually selecting the next page from the page number guide). This is not one of them. For a good eReader Dilbert experience, this is recommended.

Its ok but there is some repeated comics and its annoying to keep reading them. Overall it was a good buy and very funny.
