The creator of Dilbert ventures into hilarious new territory.Everyone knows Scott Adams as the king of workplace humor. No office is complete without a few Dilbert strips on the wall. And if you compare a VP to the Pointy-Haired Boss, no further description is necessary. But why should a humorist stick to the workplace when there are so many other great subjects to explore? What about politics? Religion? Malfunctioning underpants? Despite some fans who wish he would ?Stick to Drawing Comics, Monkey Brain!? Adams now offers more than 150 short pieces on every slice of human existence, from airport fiascos to wedding planning, from his doughnut theory of the universe to the menace of car singing. Like George Carlin or Jerry Seinfeld, Adams isn't afraid to ask the really big questions. For instance:-If a Finnish teenager hacks into our voting machines and picks the next president, would that really make things worse?-How can you know for sure that Charles Schwab didn't take all of your money and spend it on hookers and cocaine?-Is it okay to think your own thoughts during the gaps between the words when your wife is talking?-How much would it cost to have your own army of Third World mercenaries? And would it be wrong to make them join coalitions just so you can hear the president say your name on TV?-Do you really need to respect the religious views of people who killed themselves to follow a comet? Or is pretending okay?-If you were a supermodel, would you sell your DNA to a billionaire who planned to raise your clone as a sex slave?… (mais)

I haven't been a regular reader of "Dilbert" for years, but enjoyed it when I did. Adams uses his wit to opine about a lot of other topics. I didn't care a lot for the dirty parts he warned about, but the rest was pretty funny. ( )

Having loved all the previous Dilbert books, I didn't hesitate to pick this up. It is at first a disorienting read since this book does not adhere to a business theme, but finding out how brilliant Scott Adams can be in his take on the world from globe to doorstep was startling and satisfying. Adams is a very funny and wise man and writing this review makes me just want to pick the book up and read it again. Anyone who has read Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 thinks about what book they would commit to memory to preserve for generations to come. This would be the one for me.

I may finish this one day, but it's been sitting there half read for over a year so...

It is funny. Here's the problem; It's basically like you meet a very successful, funny, intelligent, person at a party and have a conversation. Only the person talks a lot about how successful, funny, and intelligent they are and their assessment of those qualities seems slightly higher than your own. It's a really interesting conversation for a short bit and then you want to get away. Scott Adams really likes the subject of Scott Adams.

He also talks about how life has gone pretty easy for him, why doesn't everyone else just do what he did? But he's not really that concerned either way. I have little patience for the stance that has been so popular in the last couple decades; "I'm so shallow and I know it and don't care. Isn't that cute and funny?". It's not. Immature and annoying, yes. There's just a little too much of that here.

I'm very much overstating the faults here. None of these traits is nearly as glaring as it sounds, but subtly they begin to add up. It may be the way I'm taking it. In person Scott Adams may completely pleasant and a great person. No offense meant Mr. Adams.

An entertaining collection of blog posts from The Dilbert Blog. Scott has a very sharp sense of humour and a way with words, and the sheer variety of topics he discusses is pretty impressive. I also like his ability to sniff out a good news story and provide an interesting take on it. If you are a Dilbert fan this book is worth checking out. ( )
