The Dilbert books have been wildly successful because author Adams hits the "hot button," as well as the funny bone, of anyone who's ever worked for a corporation. This book presents the everyday foibles in the world of work with a view from the cubicle. Adams's voice sounds like the guy in the cubicle next to yours, who has learned to deal with the corporate bureaucracy while poking fun at it. With just the right touch of sarcasm in his narration, Adams will have you laughing while you're shouting, "He's right!" Adams wins the Management Guru award hands down.

For those who work in the corporate world, "The Dilbert Principle" is full of hilarious truths. For those who have never worked in a corporate enviroment, this book will give you a peek at this sometimes inane world. Scott Adam's comic genius comes from observing the many absurd decisions. policies, and situations that come in the daily grind of business life.
I originally had this on cassette, but lost the cassette years ago. It was worth repurchasing, and I am enjoying it just as much now as I did years ago. The fact that this is read by the author makes it even better.This is one of those audiobooks that should be part of your permanent library.
I've bought all of Scott Adams' titles at Audible
(there are actually 3, but only 2 seem to come
up on Audible's search engine).
A lot of the material is repetitive (over the 3 titles),
but every so often you'll come across an observation
that makes you laugh out loud, instead of just smiling.
Not necessarily. I enjoy good old fashioned books still, however I take the audio option in order to be able to have the time to finish the book. I am always short on time, and its nice to listen to stories or topics I enjoy while typing away at the computer or sitting in traffic.
Snippits of real life management blunders that make you laugh and shake your head.
I enjoy his narration. It brings to life the book, and makes me think of his comics that I ejoy so much.
It is a short book, so I was able to listen to it all in one sitting.
Light-hearted book on management in businesses, taken to the extreme. :)
