Author Info
Scott Adams
Scott Adams was born and raised in Windham, New York, in the Catskill mountains, but has spent many years living and working in California. He holds a B.A. in economics from Hartwick College and an M.B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley. Adams also is a certified hypnotist. Adams held a variety of--in his words--"humiliating and low-paying jobs" during his eight years at Crocker National Bank and nine years at Pacific Bell. He has been a bank teller (he was robbed twice at gunpoint), computer programmer, financial analyst, product manager, commercial lender, budget manager, strategist, project manager, and pseudo-engineer. During this time, Adams entertained himself at boring meetings by drawing insulting cartoons of his co-workers and bosses. Eventually, a bespectacled character named Dilbert emerged from the doodles. In 1988, Adams mailed some sample comic strips featuring Dilbert to the major cartoon syndicates. United Feature Syndicate plucked Dilbert out of thousands of submissions received that year and offered Adams a contract. Dilbert was launched in about 50 newspapers in 1989. Adams continued his day job at Pacific Bell until 1995, drawing Dilbert every day before work. Now Adams devotes his entire day (and much of the evening) to Dilbert, including speaking, writing, doing interviews, designing artwork for licensed products, and answering hundreds of email messages. Dilbert has been published in nearly 1,000 newspapers; it has its own website, and more than a million Dilbert books have been sold.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Back after a four–year hiatus, New York Times bestselling author Scott Adams presents an outrageous look at work, home and everyday life in his new book, Dilbert and the Way of the Weasel. Building on Dilbert's theory that 'All people are idiots', Adams now says, 'All people are idiots. And they are also weasels.' Just ask anyone who worked at Enron. In this book, Adams takes a look into the Weasel Zone, the giant grey area between good moral behaviour and outright felonious activities. In the Weasel Zone, where most people reside, everything is misleading, but not exactly a lie. Building on his popular comic strip, Adams looks into work, home and everyday life and exposes the way of the weasel for everyone to see. With appearances from all the regular comic strip characters, Adams and Dilbert are at the top of their game – master satirists who expose the truth while making us laugh our heads off.
