""I think that idiot bosses are timeless, and as long as there are annoying people in the world, I won't run out of material.""-Scott Adams

Dilbert and the gang are back for this 26th collection, Thriving on Vague Objectives.

Adams has his finger on the pulse of cubicle dwellers across the globe. No one delivers more laughs or captures the reality of the 9 to 5 worker better than Dilbert, Dogbert, Catbert, and a cast of stupefying office stereotypes-which is why there are millions of fans of the Dilbert comic strip.

Dilbert is a techno-man stuck in a dead-end job (sound familiar?). Power-mad Dogbert strives to take over the world and enslave the humans. The most intelligent person in Dilbert's world is his trash collector, who knows everything about everything.

Artist and creator Scott Adams started Dilbert as a doodle when he worked as a bank teller. He continued doodling when he was upgraded to a cubicle for a major telecommunications company. His boss (no telling if he was pointy-haired or not) suggested the name Dilbert. Adams is so dead-on accurate in his depictions of office life that he has been accused of spying on Corporate America.

Dilbert fans will find the strips from 12/6/04 to 9/11/05 in this collection. The display is three daily strips per page/one Sunday strip per page. The daily strips are small but fairly clear, but you'll find yourself squinting to read the Sunday strips. Note that this is a black and white collection. Note also that the pagination is off, not a problem for reading through but if you want to remember a strip, note the date, not the page number. If you're looking for some Dilbert entertainment with strips you haven't seen in a while, this is a good pick.
