Editor's Review

The Good A collection of witty musings on everything from gambling to Ken Lay.

The Bad Dilbert barely appears!!

The Bottom Line Adams can still evoke belly laughs--but this is far from his best stuff.

To succeed as a cartoonist, it helps to see yourself as a failure. That's a possible lesson to be drawn from a recent book on Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz. But even though Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams says the vast majority of his efforts have been failures, he refuses to play it safe and stick to his proven career path. For now, the deviation is Stick to Drawing Comics, Monkey Brain!, a collection of comic musings on everything from gambling to the future of shirts. Dilbert barely appears.

That doesn't mean that Adams neglects business topics or the workplace, however. "We Influential Management Thinkers" trumpets the fact that one Web site named the author as one of the most important business thinkers on the planet. "Ken Lay" ponders whether the ex-Enron biggie might have faked his own death to evade jail time. Adams is still capable of evoking belly laughs, but it's best not to have huge expectations for this improvised volume.
