We think you'll agree that the only thing better than a brand-new Dilbert book is three old ones glued together to make an unsightly fat thing. That's called "marketing."
You might wonder, who would buy such a thing? Well, let's say you need to get a present for a friend whom you don't like very much. You remember that he has at least one Dilbert book, but you're not sure which one. Slapped Together is the solution. It's the gift that says, "I was busy."
Or let's say you're not much of a Dilbert fan and you only laugh at every tenth joke. This book is for you. You have an excellent chance of finding something funny in this huge pile even if it's just the typos.
Maybe you're a serious collector of all things Dilbert. You could try to glue your own Dilbert books together, but that's risky. You might accidentally glue yourself to the book and have to live out the rest of your days on a shelf. It's a small risk, but not one you should take.
And for the rest of you, it can be used to hold down your hair dryer so it doesn't vibrate.

the author is right. there is somthing for (almost) everyone in this giant unsightly wad of essays. and dispite the foreword, I can't spot any typos. It is a good read and contains reasons to avoid working in a cubical at all costs. although the praise is genuine, i have to do this for school work. the author is scott adams. the genre is comidy (I think).
This is a great book made up of three books that are great on their own. I do not see how any live human cannot enjoy this and these books.
ONCE AGAIN SCOTT ADAMS HAS DONE THE MAGNIFICANT WORK OF SCHOLARS AND PHILOSOPHERS! THE WORK DAY WILL NEVER BE THE SAME FOR THE POOR, HUDDLED MASSES.
