Overview

Teamwork Means You Can't Pick the Side that's Right by Scott Adams

AMP’s Dilbert calendars are the best-selling calendars in the world, with sales over 400,000 every year. Pointless projects, endless meetings, and random downsizing make up the Dilbert world.

He's the icon of millions of corporate workers, the most popular cubicle dweller on this planet. He spends his days in endless meetings with incompetent supervisors, performing perfunctory tasks mixed with the occasional team-building, brainstorming, or management fad-of-the-day session. He has entertained us for more than two decades: He's Dilbert.

Created in 1989 by Adams, in his own cubicle as a doodle distraction, Dilbert has found a home in the workplace, this generation's home away from home. Adams amuses readers with his portrayal of the absurdities of this environment with unfailing accuracy and precision. As readers of more than 2,000 newspapers, millions of books, and the newly revamped Dilbert.com site know, the familiar mouthless character with the upturned tie, his dog, Dogbert, the pointy-haired Boss, over-achieving Alice and underachieving Wally, Human Resources director Catbert, depict a world that's all too easy to recognize, complete with shrinking cubicles, clueless co-workers, focus groups and ill-conceived management concepts.

In this all-new chronological collection, Adams further exploits the fodder of workaday life, making even the most cynical cubicle dweller laugh at our shared, absurd work lives.

Teamwork Means You Can’t Pick the Side that’s Right offers excellent insights into worklife during the Great Recession. And seeing how the daily Dilbert comics are still being printed in newspapers, the book version of the comics are very handy. And quite a bit more insightful than any traditional business tome. Plus, it’s printed in lovely color, on high quality paper. Teamwork Means You Can’t Pick the Side that’s Right has many classic and insightful comics, like the one where the devilish, pointy-haired boss asks Dilbert how long a new project would take, and he responds with how he’d first “need to invent some sort of device that reverses my sense of right and wrong.” And the boss responds, “So… Are we talking about a week… Or a month?” I’m not sure if it’s funny because it’s true, or because the idea of a boss actually asking is simply bizarre, but I do know that no one has their pulse on the worklife of America like Scott Adams.
