The Joy of Work. A joy to read

AdvantagesGreat book

DisadvantagesDid you find yourself in it?

"The Joy of Work. Dilbert's Guide to Finding Happiness at the Expense of Your Co-Workers has to be one of the best books Scott Adams has ever written. In my, opinion, of course. But then, that's what Ciao reviews are all about, our opinions! This book should be required reading for every business student and businessman and businesswoman in the world. For this book is more than just hilariously funny. It is also a deceptively subversive book, too. It ..." Read review

Great fun!

AdvantagesFun and interesting

DisadvantagesHeavy on reader emails

"Everybody wonders how they can best play tricks on their workmates, and thanks to the Joy of Work's magnificent office pranks chapter, we now have dozens of fun pranks to use. Scott Adams is witty and sarcastic as usual, and it is great to read. However, I felt that Adams had not put his usual effort into this book as he had with the Dilbert Principle and Dilbert Future. He has actually written very little (most of the pranks are reader's emails) ..." Read review

In the words of Homer Simpson - "That's funny because it's true"

AdvantagesVery accurate, plenty of laugh-out-loud moments

DisadvantagesGood luck trying to read it at work during lunch!

"“The Joy of Work” is simply one of the funniest books I have ever read. Furthermore it was given to me at a time when I was really fed up with my job, so a light-hearted look at the workplace was very much needed. The book has it all. Filled with laugh-out loud moments and cartoon illustrations of what he is saying, Adams draws an accurate picture of office-life worldwide. My favourite part happened to be the tales of workplace pranks. Lots ..." Read review

This is a hilarious take on modern office life, expounding the idea that the worst rise to the top, and giving strategies for avoiding those awful assigments you're always stuck with. Basically, this is a narrative with a collection of cartoons to illustrate the points. Scott Adams isn't just an excellent, cartoonist, he's also a brilliantly ..." Read review

The Joy(?) Of Work

AdvantagesA fantastic book

DisadvantagesIt's not free for office workers

"“The Joy Of Work” is a brilliant look into the world of the office, giving practical and funny advice on how to remain sane during office hours. If I ever actually bother to get a job, then a copy of this book will sit in my desk draw all day and be used just when I feel like killing the next person I see to diffuse my rage and give me ideas on delightful pranks to pull on my fellow workers. The section on “Boss management” is essential for any office ..." Read review
