The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Dogbert's top secret management handbook':

Reviewer wrote:
Today the middle-management trials endured by Scott Adams's Dilbert are devoured by about 60 million readers. In Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook, the bespectacled canine consultant of the Dilbert strip spills his secrets. A sample: don't dabble in workplace democracy. "Some rookie managers," writes Dogbert, "make the mistake of inviting input from the employees, hoping for some valuable insight or contribution. As far as unwarranted optimism goes, this is roughly equivalent to panning for gold in your own shower." That, and several hundred other tips, will put you at the tippy-top of the corporate pyramid. Cartoonist Scott Adams gives us still more corporate belly laughs with a point in Dogbert's Management Secrets Revealed, the 10th book based on his wildly popular Dilbert comic strip. Taken this time directly from the word processor of world-class consultant Dogbert, it focuses on critical management responsibilities like keeping up with fads, implementing pointless reorganizations and demanding status reports. "Leadership isn't something you're born with," it declares. "It's something you learn by reading Dogbert books."

How to manage any organisation according to the Dogbert approach. Very funny!
