Shhhh! Don't interrupt me... I am sitting at my desk reading this mammoth volume totally dedicated to an office legend.
I have always loved Dilbert. I guess it was easier to enjoy him when I was an employee rather than running my own companies but you can't take away the exquisite genius that Scott Adams has, to create such unique and memorable humour.
The book is actually a very large sized one and is probably about the size of 2 x A4 pages side-by-side, I phrase it like that to try and give you an idea of the extra size of this book because sometimes it is hard to tell how big a book is by just looking at the image on this page. It weighs in just over 4 kgs.
The quality of the publishing of the book is of the highest level. The slipcase and the cloth covered boards make it a very special collectible to own and you feel great to rest it in your hands and read it. You can literally spend hours just going from one page to the other and totally forget what else you were supposed to be doing.
I absolutely endorse this book and we are 100% committed to have stock in our warehouse all the time. Well... that is until we sell what we have and then we have to replenish but it would be a travesty not to have one ready to go at all times. Wouldn't it?
