A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Office workers, cubicle squatters, and corporate drones everywhere read Dil bert in their morning papers and see their own bosses and coworkers in the frames of the strip, enacting on newsprint the weird rituals and bizarre ac tivities that are conducted each day in the American workplace. The charact ers' names and hairstyles have been changed to protect their identities, bu t Dilbert's readers aren't fooled. After all, they spend every day with the se idiots and lunatics. Jargon-spewing corporate zombies. The sociopath who checks voice mail on hi s speaker phone. The fascist information systems guy. The sadistic human re sources director. The technophobic vice president. The power-mad executive assistant. The pursed-lip sycophant. The big stubborn dumb guy. They're Dil bert's coworkers, and chances are they're yours, too. If you know them, wor k with them, or dialogue with them about leveraging synergies to maximize s hareholder value, then you'll recognize this comic strip as a day at the of fice, only funnier! Since 1989 Dilbert has lampooned not only the people but also the accepted conventions and practices of the business world. Office politics, management trends, business travel, personnel policies, corporate bureaucracy, irrational strategies, unfathomable accounting practices, unproductive meetings, dysfunctional organizations, oppressive work spaces, silly protocols, and inscrutable jargon are all targets of Adams's darkly goofy satirical pen. Dilbert strikes a deeply resonant.
