Book Review: The Dilbert Principle

Adams, Scott. 1996. The Dilbert Principle, A Cubicle’s Eye View of Bosses, Meetings, Management Fads and other Workplace Afflictions. New York, New York: HarperCollins. ISBN 0-88370-787-6

Pretty Funny. The obvious assortment of Dilbert cartoons and email from hapless fans illustrate foibles in the modern re-engineered business world. The final chapter on the OA5 Corp ( Out At 5, meaning everyone leaves at five PM ) is some of the best straightforward advice on business climate I have ever read. At least the final chapter should be read by all management. Sometimes it takes a cartoonist to reveal the true nature of the beast.
