Dilbert - Build A Better Life by Stealing Office Supplies


Build a Better Life by Stealing Office Supplies: Dogbert's Big Book of Business (Dogbert n' Dilbert's humour at work)
Amazon.com review
This is an old one - first published in 1991, but remains depressingly relevant and just as funny. The cartoons on career advancement, office politics, clueless managers - are bitingly accurate. How funny they are depends on which side of the office desk you sit on. A person on one side may see them as the frustrated outpourings of a dysfunctional workforce, while the other side may view them as satire hitting the nail on the head.

Since this is an early Dilbert series, Wally is not there. Alice has not yet made her appearance. Nor has Asok. Outsourcing is a decade away. E-mail is not a common workplace affliction. The World Wide Web is waiting for the browser. Dilbert is leading a lone charge, or suffering all alone at the hands of his boss. Dilbert is also less sarcastic than he is now - a reflection of the author's growing confidence that Dilbert may be a lowly cubicle dweller, but his Pointy Haired Boss cannot afford to fire him.
