    One thought on “Teamwork Means You Can't Pick the Side That's Right”

    1. There's not much point in reviewing Dilbert books, really, since they're all pretty much the same. If you like one, you'll like the others, more or less, and I like them. Lots of snarky, anti-bureaucratic humour, rendered simply. Rarely memorable but usually amusing.

    2. Dilbert books are always fun quick reads. This is a later collection, and Dilbert seems to be a bit more cynical, but that just adds to the humor. There aren't any long form series here, nothing lasts more than 3-4 strips, but it's as biting as ever (and actually more so in some places - the addition of the company CEO as a fairly common character allows for barbs aimed higher up the company chain). As always, too much of it feels too on point for someone who works within a large corporation. It [...]

    3. A few of these definitely made me giggle but my favorite has to be the upgrade to becoming Toxic Coworkers who only open discussions with topics everyone will fight about or constantly whine about their personal lives. Yup. I hear that one.

    4. Another very entertaining addition to the Dilbert corpus. My favorite involved someone telling the gang he did digital curation. Dilbert said he did not even know what that was. So the individual mocks Dilbert. When Dilbert asks him to explain what digital curation is, he can't.

    5. A nice read when you don't feel like thinking too much.This book feels like an incomplete collection - there were strips that felt like it was part of a longer story arc wish the entire thing was included.The book I borrowed from the library was full colour so that was pretty nice.

    6. Some of the bestI have many of these on my cubicle wall. This is one of SA's best collections. Scott Adam's has found his skeevy way into my wallet.

    7. He's funnier as an author when he's either more bizarre or he balances the office stuff with other strips. This was too office-heavy.
