Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Adams scrapes his pen across the fears and absurdities of an age we entered when we weren't paying attention-the age of the bureaucratic vacuum." Dilbert is the Everyman in the down-sized, techno-centered workplace. He's the corporately innocent engineer who experiences the absurdities and oddities of office life from his (sometimes shrinking) cubicle. Complemented by his sarcastic and power-hungry dog, Dogbert (aspiring Supreme Ruler of the Earth whose secret happiness is "High expectations and your own bag of chips"), Dilbert provides humor on one of life's most insidious subjects: work. It's Obvious You Won't Survive by Your Wits Alone features nearly two years of Dilbert comic strips (including Sunday cartoons!) that have never appeared in book form.

Synopsis:

Dilbert is the Everyman in the down-sized, techno-centered workplace of the '90s, who experiences the absurdities and oddities of office life from his cubicle. This collection of cartoons, starring Dilbert and his sarcastic and power-hungry canine companion Dogbert, features nearly two years of strips that have never before appeared in book form.
