Stick To Drawing Comics, Monkey Brain

Scott Adams is just brilliant. Seriously, pretty much everyone has found humor in a Dilbert cartoon at some point or another, and his writing shows the same kind of spare, pithy humor. He has a talent for suggesting outlandish but somehow compelling solutions to problems, as well as an analytical world view that I can identify with. The different format in this book (entries from a couple paragraphs to a couple pages) lets him riff on whatever is in his mind at the time, which could be anything. Readers of his blog will recognize some themes, but this isn't just a book of recycled blog posts. I seriously recommend this one.

Book 78

Did you read his blog today (Initial ReactionI)? Made me think 'cause my name starts with an A, and I do like apples and getting A's in my classes... (not that I always do.) "Things that make you go hmmmmm..."

Awesome book. I can see why you'd love it. This guy is really bright, and down to earth. Am really enjoying the book.
