Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

  "I think that idiot bosses are timeless, and as long as there are annoying people in the world, I won't run out of material."—Scott Adams

  Dilbert and the gang are back for this 26th collection, Thriving on Vague Objectives.

  Adams has his finger on the pulse of cubicle dwellers across the globe. No one delivers more laughs or captures the reality of the 9 to 5 worker better than Dilbert, Dogbert, Catbert, and a cast of stupefying office stereotypes—which is why there are millions of fans of the Dilbert comic strip.

  Dilbert is a techno-man stuck in a dead-end job (sound familiar?). Power-mad Dogbert strives to take over the world and enslave the humans. The most intelligent person in Dilbert's world is his trash collector, who knows everything about everything.

  Artist and creator Scott Adams started Dilbert as a doodle when he worked as a bank teller. He continued doodling when he was upgraded to a cubicle for a major telecommunications company. His boss (no telling if he was pointy-haired or not) suggested the name Dilbert. Adams is so dead-on accurate in his depictions of office life that he has been accused of spying on Corporate America.

About the Author

Scott Adams was born in Windham, N.Y., and graduated from Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y. Dilbert started as a doodle, but Adams was able to syndicate the strip in 1989. He continued working in Corporate America until he was voluntarily downsized in 1995. Scott Adams received the Reuben Award, cartooning's highest honor, in 1997. He resides in California.
