“I cried because I did not have an office with a door, until I met a man who had no cubicle.” - Dilbert

“After your boss has taken away your door, your walls, and your storage areas, there aren't many options left for the next revolution in office design. One of the following things is likely to go next: the floor; the ceiling; your happiness.

I think the floor will stay, but only because your company would have to dig a huge hole all the way to the other side of the earth to get rid of it. As you can imagine, a huge hole through the earth would represent a serious threat to office productivity.”

    " Even on the second read, this remains one of my favourite Dilbert's books. After reading the comic for a decade, there is not much novelty that I found on the first read but still a lot of laughs. Hopefully, will read again after another decade of memory loss! "

    " I loved this. It was funny because it was true. Adams captures how every office worker feels and shed some humour on it. I have tried some of the techniques myself which was not as much appreciated by my boss and coworkers. "

    " This introduced me to Dilbert Principles. I enjoyed the comic strips that I even bought the other Dilbert books and even got some calendars when I went to the USA. Some scenarios are very "american" though but mostly are funny and depict common though sometimes weird office situations. "
