Scott Adams has spent decades brightening up the Sunday morning paper by bringing a humorous twist to the mundanity of the 9-5 office job. By satirizing the cubicle, strangled co-worker small talk, and the boredom of sitting behind a desk all day, the Dilbert comics have become a favorite for disillusioned adults seeking a humorous way to cope with their dull routines.
These ten books from the Dilbert Comic Collection will help you get through your stressful work week by laughing through the pain and seeing the irony in the corporate chug.
