Sobre l'autor

Scott Adams, Cartoonist Scott Adams was born and raised in Windham, New York in the Catskill Mountains. He received a B.A. in economics from Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. He is also a certified hypnotist. Adams worked in a bank for eight years mostra'n més and, while a bank teller, was robbed twice at gunpoint. He also worked for Pacific Bell for nine years and describes both jobs as "humiliating and low paying jobs." It was during this time, that Adams created the character Dilbert. He was entertaining himself during meetings by drawing insulting cartoons of his co-workers and bosses. In 1988, he mailed some sample comic strips featuring Dilbert to some major cartoon syndicates. He was offered a contract and Dilbert was launched in approximately fifty papers in 1989. Adams began working on Dilbert full time as well as speaking, writing, doing interviews, and designing artwork for licensed products. Dilbert is published in over 1,200 newspapers and has a hard cover business book called "The Dilbert Principle." (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Dilbert was one of my daily strips, so I knew the theme. It's sad that so much is funny in here, as real-world working life is reflected accurately.

Still, overall just okay.

Ridiculous. It’s a cross between a puff piece for Scott Adams and a political ad for Trump.

I learned a few things but just a few. I was overwhelmed by the distasteful content and it felt like Adams was simply apologizing and not calling it an apology but an explanation: "Don't blame me!"

Three big failings:

1) Too repetitive. Book should have been 100 pages. Maybe 25 pages would have been sufficient. I fault his editor for this.

2) I don't believe his thesis: That Trump is a natural persuader in a world where facts don't count. I don't believe anyone was persuaded. People who voted for Trump weren't "persuaded" but just voted for him on straightforward reasons: hated Hillary, shortsighted self-interest, racism, etc. None of these required persuasion.

I was also astonished by the author's own claims such as:
3a) He was dismayed by bullying of anti-Trumpers. (It was Trump that encouraging his people to bully.)
3b) He supported Trump because he believed Hillary would tax his personal assets. (He was willing to disbelieve Trump's statements but not Hillary's?)
3c) He disagreed with so many of Trump's positions and yet still ultimately went on to support him.
3d) He says that he and his readers are not smart enough to assess climate change and other issues that our politicians face. (That doesn't mean we should let them get away with spouting nonsense. We have experts for a reason.)

I've probably said enough so I'll stop pointing out the problems.

I have read several of the author's other books (and I'm not talking about his cartoons) and I like the way he writes. In fact, I aim to write using the same persuasive style that the author explains. But wow, that doesn't mean I agree with him or found his book enjoyable. Ugh. It was awful. (And yes, I did read the whole thing.)

Did not like the narrator of this audio book: he needed a dryer style, he was way too heavy with the sarcastic tone.
