"In every major company, Dilbert is plastered all over. He reflects the human condition of this generation of workers."--San Francisco Chronicle
It's official. Dilbert-mania has struck the working masses with a vengeance. No comic strip has undergone a more rocket-like ascent into popularity than the one starring the wise-cracking, bespectacled engineer known as Dilbert. It has become the primary source of comic relief for anyone who has set foot in a cubicle, heard the words "empowerment" and "downsizing," or held a day-to-day job in the business world.
Dilbert's appeal lies not only in hearty laughs, but in its ability to tap into subjects and situations with which workers can easily identify. People read it and immediately say to themselves, "That exact same thing just happened to me," or "That guy must work here." Creator Scott Adams keeps his finger on the pulse of the corporate world in this collection, Casual Day Has Gone Too Far. Since leaving his job as a Pacific Bell engineer, he says about 80 percent of his material comes from his 100-million plus readers. After all, what better way to make an audience laugh than to get the ideas from the audience itself?
