Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the strategy he has used since he was a teen to invite failure in, to embrace it, then pick its pocket.
"Sucess advice from a cartoonist!"
God's Debris isn't a conventional book. It is written on three separate levels, by Scott Adams, better known as the creator of the Dilbert comic. What is less known about Adams is that he's a trained hypnotist. God's Debris is what happens when creativity and hypnosis intersect. On the surface, God's Debris is a simple fictional story of a delivery man who encounters an Avatar who knows literally everything.
"God's Debris - A beautiful tale"
Welcome to the wonderful world of under-evolved bosses, style-of-the-week buzzword management, hapless coworkers, and other worthy fodder. Sound like your company? Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip about a harried but determined '90s antihero, brings you his hilarious take on the bizarre realities of life in corporate America.
When L. Frank Baum introduced Dorothy and friends to the American public in 1900, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz became an instant, best-selling hit. Today the whimsical tale remains a cultural phenomenon that continues to spawn wildly popular books, movies, and musicals. Now, editors John Joseph Adams and Douglas Cohen have brought together leading fantasy writers such as Orson Scott Card and Jane Yolen to create the ultimate anthology for Oz fans.
"The Many Faces of Dorothy or Dot"
Scott Adams is the creator of the ubiquitous workplace comic strip Dilbert, a character so iconic that it's become an actual metric for judging workplace happiness: too many Dilbert comics on the wall and employees probably relate to the character too much but if there are no comics it's likely indicative of upper management with no sense of humor. Adam's humor comes from real experience.
"$.69 worth it "
Eat your heart out, Nostradamus! There's a new soothsayer in town and his name is Scott Adams. The ruthless ridiculer of corporate idiocy, together with Dilbert, Dogbert, and the twits in management, turns his eagle eye on everything from new work-avoiding technology to sex with aliens. He predicts that (finally!) we'll learn to harness the most abundant resource in the universe: stupidity.
Now, the secrets of the management world can be yours. Dogbert, Dilbert's wisecracking sidekick, explains how you can pretend to care, pit your employees against each other, and avoid making any decisions...just like your incompetent boss! Take a tip from Dogbert and you'll have the corner office in no time.
"Funny because it's true"
Everyone knows Scott Adams as the king of workplace humor. No office is complete without a few Dilbert strips on the wall. And if you compare a VP to the Pointy-Haired Boss, no further description is necessary. But why should a humorist stick to the workplace when there are so many other great subjects to explore? What about politics? Religion? Malfunctioning underpants?
Scott Adams' The Joy of Work is a manifesto for coping within the walls of your cubicle. You'll learn to look at the bright side of every work situation the Dilbert way: "I cried because I did not have an office with a door, until I met a man who had no cubicle."
"Woo Hoo Work"
Defending Eve is wholeheartedly inspired with love by true events and is not meant as a self-help book. Rather it is a genuine and heartfelt story that leaves the reader with many valuable lessons intended to better all relationships. It is also unique because such a tender story has its source from the acrimony of a break up. Ironically, it is only through such a stormy environment that the light is able to shine through.
