About Book

Book Description
Cracks the code of Corporate America's Funniest Double Agent. Most readers assume Dilbert is on their side in a tough workaday world. But Dilbert is a fraud.

Are you surprised that Dilbert's creator, Scott Adams, actually favors downsizing?

Are you suspicious when Xerox uses Dilbert in its employee handbook as an offbeat sugary coating to help the corporate medicine go down?

Are you tired of the sweeping portrayal of office workers as lazy idiots? Of the running gags that stay inside the moat of the corporate castle?

Do you worry when "rebellion" and "revolution" are redefined as the ability to overcome corporate bureaucracy to make more money for your boss?

Do you wonder why Dilbert avoids tackling so many real problems at work?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you'll find Norman Solomon's funny and brazen attack more refreshing than a trip to the water cooler.
