[MUST READ] – The Dilbert Principle

“A Cubicle’s Eye View of Bosses, Meetings, Management Fads & Other Workplace Afflictions”

These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a
business book and make a few bucks. That’s certainly what I’m hoping. It
would be a real letdown if the trend changed before this masterpiece goes
to print.
As some of you may know, my main profession is cartooning. It’s a challenge
for a cartoonist to write a whole book. Cartoonists are trained to be
brief. Everything I’ve learned in my entire life can be boiled down to a
dozen bullet points, several of which I’ve already forgotten.

You’d feel kinda perturbed if you bought a big thick book and all it had
in it was a dozen bullet points, particularly if several of them seemed to be
“filler.” So my “plan for excellence” is to repeat myself often to take up
some page space. In marketing terms, this is called “adding value.” And for
your reading pleasure I will include many colorful but unnecessary
metaphors. In fact, the metaphors in this book are more useless than a
weasel in a cardboard shirt.
