The Dilbert Principle

The Dilbert Principle

Rating: 4/4 (Funny and entertaining)

In The Dilbert Principle, his book on mis-management, Scott Adams gives us a comical view of corporate culture, bosses, budgets, meetings, projects, team-building exercises(!) and lots of such workplace irritations that bug most employees. Almost every statement Adams makes is substantiated with a funny strip from the incomparable Dilbert archives. In his prose, he is very tongue-in-cheek, provocative and funny. You can expect an average of 2 Dilbert strips or more per page (the book has 336 pages, you do the math). Also, he quotes several of the emails he has received from his fans about the stupid acts of their bosses and management. In the end, he also proposes a new company model: OA5. The core principles being happy employees and efficiency. If you love Dilbert (either because you find it funny or because you actually live in a Dilbert-like workplace), you will thoroughly enjoy reading this book. Highly recommended!

I almost forgot to mention, The Dilbert Principle is:

The most ineffective workers are systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage – management.
