Always Postpone Meetings with Time-Wasting Morons / 0836217586

This is the first book of Dilbert collections; I've been re-reading my collection lately and I love that there are still a lot of chuckles to be had in this slim volume. There's a little over 11 pages here, and some comics take up two full pages side-by-side, but this is still something of a must-have item for Dilbert collections.

If you're really just a fan of the newer Dilbert strips, this book may be a little surprising. The art-style is very different and has definitely evolved a lot over the years, but most surprisingly is that very few of the comics here are strictly about "work" so much as just about being a "geeky" engineer type. Quite a few of the strips are heavily pun-laden and at least a few are setups for jokes that aren't quite worth the buildup, but there are still chuckles to be had and I almost wish some of the newer strips could leave the office some more and head out for the classic Dilbert-and-Dogbert walk in the park.
