A full-color treasury that homes in on all the quirky coworkers that drive us crazy in the corporate world—the twenteth collection in the iconic series.
The former occupant of cubicle 4S700R at Pacific Bell seems to have made a go of this cartoon strip thing. What began as a doodling diversion that Scott Adams shared with his officemates has exploded into one of the most read cartoon strips worldwide.
This Dilbert treasury, What Do You Call a Sociopath in a Cubicle? (Answer: A Coworker), brings together all of the office psychos who have irritated Dilbert and entertained millions. This compilation pays homage to some of the most annoying and outrageous characters Adams’s has ever drawn—characters he likes to call office “sociopaths,” including . . . Edfred the two-faced man Anne L. Retentive Nervous Ted Loud Howard Alice and her fist of death
This full-color collection reinforces everything that makes the strip great by lampooning the people and processes of business. Adams has fun at the expense of office oafs found in workplaces everywhere—creatures like the Office Sociopath, who listens to voice mail on his speaker phone, and the Exactly Man, who punctuates everything with a finger point, exclaiming “Exactly!” The result is a book that leaves readers knowingly rolling their eyes and, of course, laughing uproariously.
“Once every decade, America is gifted with an angst-ridden anti-hero, a Nietzschean nebbish, an us-against-the-universe everyperson around whom our insecurities collect like iron shavings to a magnet. Charlie Chaplin. Dagwood Bumstead. Charlie Brown. Cathy. Now, Dilbert.” —The Miami Herald
