Read this one last week in a couple of evenings. I was not overly impressed. I never read the Dilbert comic, so it was all new to me. But I found the sarcasm and digs at corporate life to be generally unfunny. Of course, the book is dated as well, having been written in the mid-nineties. There were a few things that made me chuckle but this is not a book I would recommend. ( )

This is a great book. Adams does a wonderful job of capturing Dogbert's arrogance and some common themes in hi-tech management. ( )

Dilbert strikes again - this time dealing with things that Managers need in their daily lives - including:

Pretending to care - learn how to hear without listening.

Making decisions - be a leader without making any.

I love Dilbert - no, edit that - I LOVE Dogbert!

I read this intently to get ideas to torment my long suffering staff even more!!! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0887307884, Hardcover)

Cartoonist Scott Adams gives us still more corporate belly laughs with a point in Dogbert's Management Secrets Revealed, the 10th book based on his wildly popular Dilbert comic strip. Taken this time directly from the word processor of world-class consultant Dogbert, it focuses on critical management responsibilities like keeping up with fads, implementing pointless reorganizations and demanding status reports. "Leadership isn't something you're born with," it declares. "It's something you learn by reading Dogbert books."

By the author of the Dilbert Principle, a very funny book of cartoons and text.
