Scott Adams has probably failed at more things than anyone you've
ever met. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial
failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world's most famous
comic strips, in just a few years?
Scott Adams is the creator of Dilbert, one of the most popular and widely-distributed comic strips of the past quarter century. He has been a full-time cartoonist since 1995, after 16 years as a technology worker for companies like Crocker National Bank and Pacific Bell. His many bestsellers include The Dilbert Principle and Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook. He lives outside of San Francisco.
Adams has a funny, refreshingly considered set of ideas about how
to find success-and what that success will look like when one gets
there * Kirkus Reviews *
Scott Adams has drawn nearly 9,000 Dilbert cartoons since the strip began, in 1989, and his cynical take on management ideas, the effectiveness of bosses, and cubicle life has affected the worldview of millions. But he built his successful career mainly through trial and error-a whole lot of error, to be exact * Harvard Business Review *
