Review:
This is the funniest book i've ever read. It has so much useful information in it. I'm bound to get in trouble.

Book description
It's back to Columbia Internet, "the friendliest, hardest-working, and most neurotic little Internet Service Provider in the world," for our third installment from the hit online comic, User Friendly. The cast: Quake-obsessed techies, self-absorbed sales staff, well-meaning execs, and assorted almost-humans. The background: too little office space, warring operating systems, and eternally clueless customers. Tag along as geeks go camping, Mike finds a new use for silly putty, and Stef decides to beef up his Quake skills with the Acme Forced-Feedback Enemy-Denial Smackdown Ergonomic Game Chair. If you've read the first two User Friendly editions from O'Reilly, you don't need an introduction to Greg, Jeff, Miranda, the Dust Puppy and th... Rest of this review on the detail page

This book covers the really early strips that haven't been printed on a dead tree yet, as well as the story of how UF came into being. In addition, there'll be some strips and art that haven't been seen before (for very good reason!) and I'll be covering a ... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
This is not another book with collected Dilbert strips, but a humourous view of Scott Adams on the future. He plays with the standard views of the future (like Star Trek) and goes on with his view on management. Subjects like health, technology, democracy, capitalism, the gender balance, working (including managers and job searching), marketing and social security are discussed. And in a quite well-thought way and at the same time being quite funny. He predicts airline seats will still be to small and stupid managers will stay. All in all a reasonably funny book, but not as accessible and easy to read as some of the other Dilbert books. Whether this is good or bad for you is up to you :)

Book description
A coloring book for adults? No--proof that laughter is the best medicine. Temporarily exiled to bed and Boredom Land, the author's doodles begat cartoons. The cartoons begat a coloring book. The book? An utterly delightful tool for self-healing . All the puns that have kept you groaning for a lifetime are waiting for your eyes and hands. Suitable for children, endorsed by physicians, and the perfect prescription for your funny bone!
